Dear Mr. Peters and Mr. Sarandos,
We the undersigned urge you to do what your predecessor would not: move the company away from content that sexually exploits children, that exposes them to explicit language, and that glamorizes violence and self-harm.
Your #1 priority for Netflix must be to safeguard the health and well-being of children and teens.
PTC research revealed that Stranger Things allows the ‘f-word’ and ‘s-word’ to air uncensored numerous times – a line rarely crossed in programs rated for 13- and 14-year-olds. Stranger Things should be rated TV-MA.
We ask you to change that immediately.
The Netflix cartoon Big Mouth depicts animated nudity featuring middle school children.
Netflix continues to host Cuties, a film that features 11-year-old girls in sexually provocative performances.
Netflix’s teen-targeted suicide drama, 13 Reasons Why, is still available to watch.
We urge you to remove these toxic programs from your streaming platform.
