Netflix has apologized after a poster advertising an upcoming film was accused of normalizing pedophilia. But one theologian told CNA that an apology for the image is not enough, and that the film itself sexualizes children.
The promotional material for the film provoked widespread criticism overnight on Aug. 19, with many claiming that the film's promotional material appeared to sexualize children.
"We're deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties," Netflix's official Twitter account tweeted on Thursday, August 20.
"It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which premiered at Sundance. We've now updated the pictures and description," said Netflix.
