Netflix has reportedly seen a surge in U.S. subscription cancellations following the controversy over the movie Cuties, which has generated a firestorm over its highly sexualized depiction of underage girls.
Variety cited a study from a data firm called YipItData that found that on Saturday, Netflix’s cancellation rate in the U.S. jumped to nearly eight times higher than the average daily levels recorded in August. The firm noted that Netflix subscriber churn rates — or cancellations — began to rise on Thursday, which is when the hashtag #CancelNetflix reached the top-trending spot on Twitter.
Netflix doesn’t release subscriber cancellation data and so the YipItData study is based on estimates and other secondary methods of divining Netflix’s internal figures.
YipItData didn’t provide estimates on the actual number of customers who have canceled, according to Variety.
Netflix reported that it had 193 million paying subscribers worldwide at the end of the second quarter in June.
Cuties continues to be a lightening rod for Netflix as the controversy draws scrutiny from a growing number of politicians. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is among the Republican lawmakers calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into Netflix for what Cotton called “peddling child pornography.”
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has condemned Cuties as “child porn,” saying that Netflix is “complicit” in encouraging pedophiles and helping to fuel the child sex trafficking trade.
Netflix is standing by its decision to release the French movie, arguing that the film is actually a “social commentary” against the sexualization of children. Not buying it, Sen. Cotton tweeted Tuesday that protecting children should take precedence over “art.”
“We all have a duty to protect the children under our care,” the senator tweeted. “When adults fail in that duty, young lives are harmed, predators are emboldened, and society itself is coarsened as a consequence. No ‘art’ or ‘social commentary’ can justify such a moral outrage.”
Oh well what does one think when they hire the obamas for a ton of money? I’am sure glad I don’t subscribe to them.
Pretty quick the coon, and his tranny may have to spend their own money to save sexflix.
Where’s the Midas touch when it’s really needed. Libs did this commie push about ten years too early. Ten more years of soaking kids minds in schools would have given them the edge they needed.
I will be terminating my Netflix account today.
They have always been scum !!!!! I would never subscribe to that garbage. I hope they go broke along with all the other hollywood assholes.
If Netflix keep hiring people like Obama and Rice, they will be lucky if they end up with 50% of their viewers!
I think its discusting for a programme of this nature to get air time I had Netflix but no more. Isn’t it enough that thousands of children are being sex traffic all round the world and put underground killed or used for sex by depraved people.
I believe the LGBTQ pervirts are promoting this, they have been targeting the young to put their sick way in these young minds like, Drag Queen Hour and homosexual videos for children, their child predator that, need to be removed from society to stop their mental sickness their trying to force on us, demorats are promoting them, Nasty Nancy just said the problem is we need more transexual in the government.
Our subscription fees going to gold digger Markel and her lackey
Please take cutties off netflix or i will leave also… concerned about all things promoting children looking like adults.
Also fone with lgt.crap kids need to grow up not having sex of different types pushed down their minds.let kids grow up normal.family life should be promoted.I believe most are pushed into wrong sex life from being introduced way to early as if normal to be gay.or but sex so you dont get pregnant.this shit needs to stop.
Yes gays are in my family.all were abused.by same s3x or bullyed by opiset sex.members to wear they felt creeped out.
So they turned to same sex .let kids grow up without these types of abuse.
More people would not be gay
Dont get me started on all these pedi.shows.gross.grow up stop promoting child sex!!!
Netflix is stooping really low if they release this movie. It isn’t art, it is a dangerous invitation to sick minded people who prey on children.
My thoughts exactly!
I canceled my subscription when they signed the Obamas to make propaganda movies, not to mention hate this man and his family have for America.
Who would watch them anyway? Drop them and contribute to their demise! Especially, to think they loaded up obummer and his male “wife!”
Back in my days in the marines the gays were called QUEERS and were discharged immediately as undesirable. In a combat zone they would be the first to be shot, maybe by our on troops. If they were queer they did not flaunt it.
