Republicans Call On DOJ to Investigate Netflix Over ‘Cuties’ Film

    Truth be told if the politicians find this movie to be illegal (and it should probably be seen as such after all even Facebook and Twitter AI automatically censors posts with Cuties screenshots as “sensitive content”) it is not enough for Netflix to simply delete the movie and pretend it never existed.
