This is the same media company that just signed a deal with Barack and Michelle Obama.
From Fox News: Netflix has come under fire for a movie streaming on their site that some viewers say contains a scene that is child pornography.
The opening scene of the Argentinian film “Desire” depicts two young girls under the age of 10 playing around with pillows. The scene takes a sexual turn involving one of the girls.
The news site PJ Media said it reported the film to the FBI and Department of Justice for child pornography. The FBI told Fox News, “Per DOJ policy, the FBI neither confirms nor denies the existence of an investigation.”
The film remains on Netflix’s site and a rep for the streaming service did not return Fox News’ request for comment. It was not immediately clear what Netflix’s vetting policy is for films.
Angry viewers took to Twitter to share their disgust and are calling on Netflix to remove the film and start an investigation.
