I’m appalled. Please add my name to the tens of thousands rallying against Netflix. Let’s hammer them into cleaning up—and stop harming our daughters and families with shows like 365 DAYS and Cuties that glorify sex-trafficking, rape, and the sexualization of children. NO!
A Public Plea to STOP Glorifying Sexual Abuse and Sex Trafficking

I’m told Netflix had revenue of $20.16 billion last year—including the personal profits and elite status it has brought to each of you. I’m sure you’re enjoying it.
Now, would you stop profiting from maliciously endangering America’s young daughters? Would you stop glamorizing human sex trafficking, which has claimed more than 100,000 children, and many more adults, in America alone? Would you have the decency to stop glorifying sexual abuse of women—encouraging rapists and pedophiles and giving women and girls a warped impression that submitting to dehumanized sex slavery is “sexy”?
All this, and worse, is what Netflix—including you personally—is doing by streaming and profiting from 365 DAYS and CUTIES. In this perverted film, a wealthy young man kidnaps a female executive and violently turns her into a sex slave—portrayed in a glamorized light, in pornographic fashion. It is accessible to American girls, women, rapists, and pedophiles via Netflix. Have you NO decency? You are husbands, wives, fathers, and mothers. Don’t you care?
I care. So I stand with Parents Television Council (PTC), tens of thousands of Americans, and figures such as popular singer Duffy who have petitioned you to stop airing 365 DAYS, CUTIES and other such harmful programs. I will monitor your response through Mr. Tim Winter, president of PTC. Stop endangering our children.
