COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, along with attorneys general from Florida, Louisiana and Texas, have petitioned Netflix to remove the film “Cuties.”

According to a release from the attorney general's office, the film shows children using their bodies in a "sexual manner," "graphically focuses on the clothed genitalia of children" and "shows the creation and publication of child pornography."

“In this era where we are fighting a seemingly never-ending battle against human trafficking, this film is counterproductive – it whets the appetites of those who wish to harm our children in the most unimaginable ways,” Yost said. “I vehemently opposed the continued streaming of the movie and request that it is voluntarily removed.”
