Netflix is on the hook to answer why it continues to distribute child pornography found in the controversial film Desire
that shows a young girl engaged in an explicit act.
Parents Television Council President Tim Winter wrote to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings asking him to directly answer this question and more, saying, “Netflix has gone from merely showing a reckless disregard for the millions of families that keep your streaming platform alive and viable, and callously placing profits ahead of any sense of corporate responsibility, to potentially engaging in criminal activity. And at such a momentous time in Hollywood as this, where #MeToo is exposing grotesque behavior and holding those accountable for engaging in it, how can Netflix affirmatively engage in the distribution of such disreputable content?”
