Texas grand jury indicts Netflix over movie Cuties

Netflix has been indicted in the conservative southern US state of Texas for screening the French film “Cuties,” which has been accused of hypersexualizing young girls and depicting children in a lewd manner.

Statements by Republican lawmakers and an online campaign against the film have tapped into concern over child sexual molestation, making the movie political leverage in the battle to re-elect Republican President Donald Trump.

The streaming service became the subject of a grand jury hearing in Tyler County, east of Houston, in the middle of September, and a local elected official revealed Tuesday that the same jury issued an indictment.
