That streaming service has been taking heat for months about a new series making underage prostitution seem glam and fun.
An executive has gone on record calling it “edgy”.
Whenever the press asks questions, the streaming service doesn’t even try to defend what they’re doing.
They just don’t care.
DIane SanNetflix’s ‘Baby’ comes under fire for glamorizing teenage prostitution
The National Center of Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) is slamming Netflix’s new Italian drama “Baby” for promoting sex trafficking, Fox News has learned.
The series, which premiered Friday morning, tells the story of two teen girls from a wealthy part of Rome who are fed up with their families and classmates and are drawn to the city’s seedy underworld.
The six-part series has a TV-MA rating and stars Benedetta Porcaroli, Alice Pagani and Riccardo Mandolini.
Variety reported the show is loosely based on real events from 2014, the so-called “Baby Squillo” scandal, that involved two high school girls from Rome’s ritzy Parioli district selling sex in order to buy designer clothes and electronic gadgets. Five people, including the mothers and both young women, were arrested at the time.
Haley Halverson, vice president of advocacy and outreach for NCOSE, told Fox News she was outraged by the show’s premise, which she says glorifies sex trafficking.- Source
