Netflix Cancellations Spike Over Pedophile Scandal

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.”

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
