A conservative Texas Senator and a progressive House member from Hawaii are both critical of a new movie on Netflix.
Senator Ted Cruz is asking the Justice Department to investigate the film and see if anyone associated with the production violated federal laws in the making of the film.
According to the French filmmakers, the film is intended to criticize the hypersexualisation of pre-adolescent girls. The plot revolves around a French-Senegalese girl with a traditional Muslim upbringing who is caught between traditional values and Internet culture.
Former presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard says Netflix 'is complicit' and tweeted, "the film will certainly whet the appetite of pedophiles and help fuel the child sex trafficking trade."
The hashtag #cancelnetflix is trending on twitter.
