Netflix indicted for “Cuties” movie in Tyler County (Texas)


The Golden Hammer Staff Reports

Tyler (Texas), October 6 – A Tyler County, Texas, Grand Jury indicted Netflix, Inc., for child obscenity, a felony, for the presentation, advertising, exhibition, and publishing of the film, “Cuties,” which shows the genitals and pubic area of children under the age of 18. The indictment, which State Representative Matthew Schaefer, a Republican from Tyler and local attorney there, occurred on September 23, 2020, but was unsealed today.

A copy of the Indictment is at the end of this article.

“Cuties” is a movie which many far-left political activists promoted, while many conservatives complained that it constituted “obscenity” under the Roth test for such matter, i.e., that it “appeals to the prurient interest in sex, and has no serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.” The test receives its name for the obscenity case, Roth versus United States, a 1957 United States Supreme Court case for which Justice Potter Stewart famously wrote the opinion.

The indictment presents substantial legal peril for Netflix, because the company showed the “Cuties” movie on the Internet, so it distributed the film worldwide.

No arraignment has yet occurred in the case, but corporate officials will have to appear before the Tyler County District Court to respond to the serious charges.
