To: David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery
We, the undersigned, hereby submit this petition to request the implementation of the strongest parental controls by default on your new MAX streaming service and to demand you pull “Naked Attraction” from your streaming service immediately.
Max must ensure that children cannot access explicit content that can be harmful to them. The burden here is on Max. The company must implement the strongest possible parental controls by default instead of putting the burden on parents to figure it out. Max must ensure a consistent user experience – and with the strongest child protections – regardless of the device used to watch content on the platform.
MAX should never allow p*rnographic content on a streaming service that is shared by families. But even without programs like Naked Attraction, Max needs to provide the strongest possible parental controls to protect impressionable children from adult content.
With all of the rapid advances in technology it’s nearly impossible for even the most diligent parents to stay on top of it all. And now, with the streaming market becoming so fractured and with no real oversight or regulation over this burgeoning industry, it’s harder than ever for families to protect their children from harmful media content.
Warner Bros. Discovery should be working with families to reduce the chances of children being exposed to unsuitable content, while promoting a safe and secure streaming environment, and removing content that exists only to appeal to viewers’ prurient interests.
Therefore, we call on Warner Bros. Discovery to make the following changes to its streaming platform:
By implementing the strongest parental controls as the default setting on your MAX streaming service, Warner Bros. Discovery will demonstrate its commitment to safeguarding the well-being of children and supporting responsible media consumption.
We, the undersigned, request your prompt attention to this matter. Together, let's create a safer digital space for our children and empower parents with the necessary tools to protect their young ones.
