Netflix subscriptions plummeted and cancellations increased by 800% after the release of controversial French film Cuties, analytics firm reveals

Netflix’s disappointing third quarter earnings was the result of subscribers canceling their service at eight times the usual rate because of anger over the controversial French film Cuties, it has been reported.

Data unearthed by two analytics firms indicate that there was a sharp uptick in the number of people who cancelled their subscriptions at around the same time that calls were growing for a boycott of Netflix over its airing of Cuties.

Antenna, a data analytics firm that tracks Netflix subscribers, reported a ‘meaningful spike in churn rate’ shortly after the hashtag #CancelNetflix went viral.

Disney Warns Viewers Of Racism In Some Classic Movies With Strengthened Label

Many people have long said certain Disney classics like Peter Pan, Dumbo and The Aristocats contain racist stereotypes and overtones.

Disney agrees. Viewers will now encounter a warning on Disney+ when streaming those and other titles containing racist material.

"We can't change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together," Disney said on its website detailing the new advisory, "to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of."

Sticks and Stones Break Bones

One issue with Steven Pinker’s The Better Angels of Our Nature is the book’s presumption that popular entertainment may reliably be used as a proxy for cultural sensibilities on the ground. Medieval Europeans did bear baiting and burned cats alive for entertainment. Hardly surprising since their societies were more violent than the most blighted urban areas of modern America. We’re a lot less violent now. We’d never put up with that today.

Okay, but a generation ago baseball was America’s pass time and boxing matches were the events of the year. Today, football dwarfs baseball and the UFC towers over boxing. Our entertainment got more violent while our society became less so.

FLASHBACK - Where Are They Now? These 23 Celebrities Said They'd Move If Trump Won

Back in September, my colleague Catherine Dunn published this nice compilation of 23 celebrities who said they would be leaving the country if Donald Trump were elected president. Given that Trump was indeed elected president and will be inaugurated on Friday, I thought it would be prudent to check in and see if any of these celebrities had stayed true to their word.

It's time to find out: have they decided that America is actually already pretty great?

Hollywood Is Dying, And The Elites Don’t Care…

If we are following a traditional communist model, then the goal will be to continue to eradicate choice until the only options left are those that are granted to us by centralized committee. My suspicion is that economic crisis along with corporate monopoly will be used to this end. Our only option at that point will be to avoid consuming anything they are selling. But of course it’s also possible that one day you will have a TV installed in your home that you can never shut off, playing movies like Cuties nonstop until it becomes an ingrained background noise in your brain.

A Bailout For Hollywood Stars Next? World's Largest Movie Chain Prepares For Bankrutpcy

In what may end up as the most poetic outcome of the covid crisis, one which has seen Hollywood's starved-for-attention C-listers take their clothes off in hopes of attracting attention making a political stand for either wearing masks or supporting the one presidential candidate who has all but assured more nationwide lockdowns are coming (because scientists)...

... Hollywood's movie stars may be next in line for a taxpayer bailout.

What could precipitate such an outcome? Well, if the primary source of revenue for Hollywood - namely billions in annual box office revenue - is indefinitely shuttered, then movie studios and producers would have no choice but to apply a very major haircut to those $20 million checks they hand out to the star du jour.

Jane Fonda sparks outcry after calling Covid-19 pandemic ‘God’s gift to the Left’

The Covid-19 pandemic could be “God’s gift to the Left” because it might help Joe Biden beat Donald Trump next month, actress and long-time leftist activist Jane Fonda has mused, triggering uproar on social media.

Fonda, who is 82 years-old, made the comment during a virtual sit-in with the US Working Families Party last week, though it was only spotted by netizens on Wednesday.

“I just think Covid is God’s gift to the Left,” Fonda said in the clip, quickly adding that she knows “it's a terrible thing to say.” She reasoned that the pandemic had “ripped the bandaid off” Trump and shown people “what he stands for and what is being done to average people and working people in this country.”

Giant ‘TRUMP’ sign toppled by triggered California officials citing ‘safety hazard’

California officials were so triggered after someone erected a giant “TRUMP” sign on a hillside overlooking a Los Angeles freeway, that they promptly removed it from the private property within two hours of a caller reporting it.

The sign, visible on the hills near the Sepulveda Pass as Los Angeles drivers began their Tuesday commute, was first reported just before 7 a.m. by a driver who “was apparently concerned it could spark a blaze” after the state’s history of “destructive brush fires in the past few years.”

Oprah Winfrey: America’s Racial ‘Caste System’ Was the ‘Template for Nazi Germany’

Billionaire multimedia mogul Oprah Winfrey described America’s “caste system” as “the template for Nazi Germany” in an interview with Isabel Wilkerson, author of Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, for the latest episode of her Apple TV series, Oprah’s Book Club.

Wilkerson, an alumnus of the New York Times, characterized Caste as an analysis of what she describes as a race-based American “caste system.”

“How did you decide to focus the book on three cast systems, India, Nazi Germany, and the United States? I think a lot of people get riled up and offended that you’re comparing the caste system here to Nazi Germany, yet we discover that we were the template for Nazi Germany,” Winfrey said.

Adolf Hitler drew inspiration from American eugenicists in formulating the Nuremberg laws, noted Wilkerson and Winfrey. Neither acknowledged Margaret Sanger’s prominence in America’s eugenicist movement.

Hollywood Celebs Erupt with Rage over Trump Leaving Walter Reed: ‘Faking Recovery!’ Doctors ‘Lying for a Mass Murderer’

Hollywood elites experienced an epic meltdown after President Donald Trump tweeted that he would be leaving Walter Reed Military Hospital on Monday evening. At the center of Hollywood’s temper tantrum was the president’s advice: “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.”

Those words set off a Hollywood freak out in which celebrities launched social media attacks at the president and even his medical team, spreading conspiracy theories and wild accusations intended to hurt Trump.

“You are faking your recovery!” tweeted NBC’s Community actor Ken Jeong, who is also a medical doctor.

The president’s doctors are “lying for a mass murderer,” Animal Kingdom actress Ellen Barkin tweeted.

“This is reckless to a shocking degree, even for you,” Captain American star Chris Evans tweeted.

The death of cinema? Odeon will shut a QUARTER of its 120 venues during week as Cineworld confirms plans to close sites in UK and US with 45,000 jobs - including 5,500 in Britain - at risk after film studios delay releases

The UK's biggest cinema chains have today announced the closure of more than 150 sites, laying bare the toll of the coronavirus pandemic.

On a devastating day for the industry, Cineworld confirmed plans to temporarily close all 127 of its sites across the UK, affecting up to 5,500 employees.

Some 45,000 staff will be affected as the cinema giant mothballs all 600 of its theatres on both sides of the Atlantic.

The swingeing closures come after the latest James Bond film - No Time to Die - delayed its release again due to the lockdown.

Just hours later, Odeon announced that from Friday, around a quarter of its 120 venues will move to a weekend-only model.

‘The Wire’ Star Dominic West: I Did ‘Leap in the Air With Joy’ at News of Trump Coronavirus Diagnosis

The Wire and The Affair actor Dominic West said he felt “joy” when news of President Donald Trump testing positive for coronavirus, telling morning television he leapt in the air with joy at the news.

The English-born actor was speaking to UK television show Good Morning Britain Friday in his capacity as an ambassador for British Royal charity The Prince’s Trust, as he discussed the work the body had been doing helping young people through the coronavirus pandemic. But the discussion took a dark turn when the host asked West for his response to the news U.S. President Donald Trump had tested positive for the Chinese virus.

Watch: ‘Homeland’ Star Mandy Patinkin Unhinged — Trump Debate Performance was ‘Bestiality’

Actor Mandy Patinkin launched an unhinged rant following Tuesday night’s president debate, calling the televised contest a “cluster fuck.” The Homeland and Princess Bride star begged Joe Biden to “refuse” to debate Donald Trump again and accused the president of “bestial behavior” and “bestiality.”

“We just watched the debate. I hope that there’s a flood across the country from both sides that we do not put the American people through any more of this,” Patinkin began in a once-minute video rant posted after the debate. “This is not a debate. It was a cluster fuck of one man’s impropriety, bestial behavior, inability to listen, to give any decency to another human being’s questions or answers from the opponent.”

With spy series 'Tehran,' Israelis reach out to an enemy

The show's creators hope that offering viewers a sympathetic view of Iran - one of Israel's greatest regional foes - could open hearts and maybe be a stepping stone for future dialogu

The series opens with a commercial flight from Jordan to India that's suddenly diverted to Iran. A few of the passengers on board have secrets. Those secrets will soon have war jets scrambling and a covert manhunt launching.

As audacious as the premise, “Tehran” is equally bold: an Israeli production that offers viewers a sympathetic view of Iran — one of Israel's greatest foes — without anyone from the production setting foot in the Islamic Republic.

‘That’s enough Mr. West’: Kanye confuses Twitter with stream of Eastern Orthodox icons

Hip hop enigma Kanye West has once again left his fans puzzled, this time tweeting out dozens of Orthodox icons, followed by calls for a black revolution.

Kanye West emerged from a Twitter hiatus in early 2018 sporting a red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and declaring his “love” for President Donald Trump. Since then, fans and onlookers have grown to expect unusual behavior from the rap megastar, and Kanye hasn’t disappointed them. He’s shown Trump his plans for a hydrogen-powered plane, launched his own bid for the White House, made his disagreements with the recording industry public, and shared his vision of a Christian-friendly TikTok.

Maher said Barrett is “a fucking nut. Religion, I was right about that one too. … Amy Coney Barrett, Catholic, really Catholic. I mean really, really Catholic, like speaking in tongues, like she doesn’t believe in condoms. Which is what she has in common with Trump. Because he doesn’t either. I remember that from Stormy Daniels. So, she’s going to be on the court.”

#CancelNetflix Causes Massive Loss For Pro-Pedophilia Netflix

Netflix, America’s favorite streaming giant, is no longer in the good graces of Americans who oppose child pornography. Many angry customers have canceled their subscriptions en mass following the release of French film “Cuties.” Despite winning a film festival award, the movie about a dance troupe of twerking 11-year-olds did not sit well with Netflix’s American audience after all. Now, Netflix is feeling the brunt of the outrage from angry subscribers nationwide, and also catching bipartisan flak from the nation’s elected leaders.

After Netflix premiered the French film “Cuties” last week, #CancelNetflix began trending on Twitter and other social media platforms, and the pushback from infuriated Americans caused a massive decline in subscriptions. Reports are circulating that the company lost $9,000,000,000 in market value since the hashtag went viral on Twitter.

UK satire show Spitting Image has been savaged online after unveiling a puppet of teen climate crusader Greta Thunberg that some claim mocked her autism. With no episodes of the show yet released, others questioned the outrage.

BritBox TV’s reprisal of the political puppet satire attracted major backlash after unveiling its Thunberg puppet on Tuesday - a typically-absurd looking construct exaggerating the pint-size eco-warrior’s furrowed brow, hectoring finger, and braided pigtails.

Nolte: Ratings Poison Jimmy Kimmel Drives Emmys to All-Time Ratings Low

Jimmy “The Blackface-N-Word-User” Kimmel now has the distinction of holding two television records. In 2018, he drove the Oscars to a all-time ratings low. This year he drove the Emmys to an all-time ratings low.

Sunday night’s Emmy telecast, which was hosted by Jimmy “The Blackface-N-Word-User” Kimmel, was not just a catastrophe. It was a catastrophe on top of a catastrophe. What I mean is that last year’s Emmy ratings were a catastrophe, and now this year’s are an even bigger catastrophe.

Last year, the Emmys hit a record low with just 6.9 million viewers.

According to early estimates, this year’s telecast, which was hosted by Jimmy “The Blackface-N-Word-User” Kimmel, are down a whopping 14 percent from that, with only 5.11 million viewers.

Britain, France, and Germany Spurn US Plan for Iran Sanctions

Trump Administration officials have been saying this for weeks, but on Friday reiterated their intentions to try to enforce a UN Security Council resolution that includes broad sanctions against Iran. Officials say they expect every nation to comply.

The glaring problem with this is that the resolution doesn’t exist, at least not as an active resolution the US wants. The P5+1 nuclear deal gave the US the authority to reimpose sanctions on Iran, but the US had withdrawn from that pact years ago. Though the Trump Administration argued that didn’t matter, the UN has virtually unanimously rejected their interpretation, and rejected the UN Security Council resolution. The US believes the resolution becomes active Sunday, but the reality is it just doesn’t exist legally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These actions spell desperation on the cusp of madness, and the world is not following suit; so, what is next here, an invasion of Iran?!?

Considering just how "brilliantly" the other US occupations around the world are going, you might imagine it might just be time for a "re-think" on this; but of course, Israel's Bibi Netanyahu will not allow that to happen; he wants the US waging war against Iran, so Israel will not have to.

Michelle Obama’s influence over Netflix led to release of pro-pedo movie ‘Cuties’

Netflix is under fire for distributing the pro-pedo flick “Cuties” over its streaming video service. The movie “Cuties” is about an 11-year-old girl who discovers her sexuality while twerking.

“Cuties” has been described by its apologists as a triumph of diversity and womanhood. It should come as no surprise that this content is getting distributed as former first lady Michelle Obama is an influential producer with Netflix.

Big League Politics reported three years ago on how the Obamas were using Netflix to distribute their political propaganda and promote their social agenda after leaving the White House:

ITV Network Flooded with Complaints over ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Black Lives Matter Dance Routine

British television network ITV has been flooded with tens of thousands of complaints after Britain’s Got Talent’s former winners performed a routine inspired by the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Variety reports the channel has received over 21,000 complaints since the routine was broadcast on September 5th, where the dance troupe Diversity performed a Black Lives Matter-inspired routine.

Part of the routine involved group member Ashley Banjo lying on the floor while a fellow dancer dressed in police gear handcuffed him, with the performance billed by the talent show as “a performance that will be talked about for years to come.”

Report: Meghan Markle Plans Netflix Doc on ‘Marxist’ Black Lives Matter Founder

The Duchess of Sussex, actress Meghan Markle, has reportedly pitched a documentary to Netflix on the life of the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, after signing a £120 million deal with the American streaming giant according to a British newspaper.

The biopic would reportedly tell the story of BLM leader Patrisse Cullors, who has described herself and her other co-founders as “trained Marxists”. Cullors has also admitted to being mentored by Eric Mann, a communist domestic terrorist in the United States.

A source told British tabloid gossip-paper Daily Mirror that Markle is “hugely inspired” by Cullors, saying: “Meghan has been blown away by the incredible work Patrisse has done. She thinks her story needs to be told – and she would love to be the one to make it.”

Cullors co-founded BLM in 2013 alongside Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin shooting case.

11-year-old girls humping floors, rubbing their groins, and twerking. Netflix’s ‘Cuties’ is irresponsible filmmaking

Netflix just released the highly controversial award-winning French pre-tween twerking movie ‘Cuties’, and it’s about as bad as one would expect.
To call it pedo-bait would be an understatement. Barely a 10-minute segment passes by without the viewer witnessing 11-year-old girls in tight clothing humping the floor, or camera shots that zoom in on their butts, accentuating every crevice and curve. This occurs when members of the young cast are in short shorts or even just their underwear. And don’t get me started on the groin shots or full on pubic rubbing.

Michael Moore & Bill Maher Beg Dems To Wake Up: "Enthusiasm For Trump OFF THE CHARTS! Are You Ready For Trump Victory?" - by Tyler Durden

Sat, 08/29/2020 - 15:50

As even The New York Times was reluctant to admit this week, the return of mass unrest and urban rioting in places like Kenosha, Portland, Seattle and D.C. is only serving to energize Trump's base, and further to make his law-and-order message more appealing to fence-sitters. RealClearPolitics has Biden's lead shrinking to 3 points in key battleground states after Biden led in June by a considerable nearly 7 points, according to its index of polls.

And more significantly, some of same Liberal and Progressive voices that tried to warn Democrats ahead of Trump's "shock" 2016 victory are at it again, starting with filmmaker Michael Moore, who warned in a Facebook post on Friday using all caps that enthusiasm among Trump's base is "OFF THE CHARTS!"

Video distributor Netflix has removed a US promo poster for the French film Mignonnes (“Cuties”) featuring children in skimpy outfits and suggestive poses, after an outcry on social media, and a ban by notoriously perverted 4chan.

The subscription service said in a statement on Thursday that it was “deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Cuties,” acknowledging that the design – which featured the film’s 11-year-old protagonists in crop tops and booty shorts, several seemingly mid-twerk – was neither “OK” nor representative of the film itself.

Rose McGowan’s new #MeToo rape claim puts the Left in difficulty. No prizes for guessing what they’ll do – they’ll dump on her

Hollywood actress Rose McGowan has publicly accused Oscar-winning director Alexander Payne of “grooming” and of raping her when she was just 15. Given her call-outs of left-wing figureheads, how will liberals respond to this?

It's not easy to say what to do with a public rape accusation. Unless there's an actual court case with evidence presented, at the very start it feels like a “he-said, she-said” scenario. As time goes on, often more evidence or testimonial is provided that allows folks to come up with their own ideas of what actually went on. This, of course, is assuming that the statute of limitations has run out. If it has not, then it may end up in court like the Harvey Weinstein situation.

Now, Rose McGowan is certainly no stranger to these sorts of scenarios. She was one of the first actresses to be open about the terrible things that Weinstein has now been put in jail over, saying in 2017 that the movie mogul had sexually assaulted her in the late 1990s.

Child Sex Trafficking in Hollywood: Actor Goes Online Revealing Shocking Allegations

In a shocking video, American film actor and producer John Paul Rice sent an alarming message about child sex trafficking in Hollywood and urged viewers to take action to end violations which, according to him, are not accidental in the entertainment industry.

In his 39-minute Instagram live video about a week ago, Paul Rice revealed that Amazon.com has removed his film "A Child's Voice" even though it has been on the website for a year and a half. The independent producer explained that Amazon's response was a typical one that didn't address the content of the film, and rather cited "constant changes on the platform."

The 2018 feature film addresses human trafficking, particularly incidents targeting children and teenagers.

In the Pentagon and China’s propaganda wars, greedy Hollywood is a happy helper for both – the people and art are the victims

Hollywood won’t choose between the totalitarian Sauron of China and the authoritarian Darth Vader of the US military, but instead will support both evils, and the people of the world and the art of cinema will suffer greatly.

A propaganda war is being waged by China and the US military for control of Hollywood, and therefore the minds of the public, for their own nefarious purposes.

Not surprisingly, like whores at a battlefield brothel, the morally ambiguous harlots of Hollywood are trying to profit from servicing both combatants. PEN America, a group championing free expression, recently released an exhaustive report detailing how China has taken control of Hollywood.

Take the woke pill: ‘The Matrix’ was always meant to be a ‘TRANS STORY,’ Lilly Wachowski claims

‘The Matrix’ co-director Lilly Wachowski is claiming the classic science fiction fantasy was always intended to be an allegory for transgender struggles, making her the latest artist to give into woke revisionism.

1999’s ‘The Matrix’ is perhaps one of the most written-about films in history. Its story of reality being an artificial design by dominating machines and characters being chosen to ‘wake up’ from the false world into the real one, where humans battle machines, lends itself to endless theories.

Wachowski put all that theorizing to bed this week, however, by claiming the film was always intended to be an allegory for the experience of a transgender person.

She will soon receive one of the biggest payoffs in the history of Hollywood , as the gross receipts of both films and their sequels total over 2.5 billion dollars.

Stewart filed her case in 1999, after viewing the Matrix, which she felt had been based on her manuscript, ‘The Third Eye,’ copyrighted in 1981. In the mid-eighties Stewart had submitted her manuscript to an ad placed by the Wachowski Brothers, requesting new sci-fi works..

According to court documentation, an FBI investigation discovered that more than thirty minutes had been edited from the original film, in an attempt to avoid penalties for copyright infringement.

Critics mock Hillary Clinton 'alternate history' TV series reportedly in development for Hulu

A new television series that is reportedly being developed about an "alternate history" of Hillary Clinton was widely panned on social media.

Variety reported Wednesday that Hulu optioned the rights to Curtis Sittenfeld's 2020 novel "Rodham," which depicts what life would have been like for Hillary Rodham had she not married then-future Arkansas governor and President Bill Clinton.

This follows Hulu's docuseries "Hillary," which premiered on the streaming service earlier this year.

Go woke and creatively broke: BAFTA & Oscar inclusivity initiatives will stifle freedom of expression

Formerly lauded awards ceremonies are introducing inclusivity measures in a bid to force game developers and filmmakers into representing marginalized groups, but in doing so they risk stagnating mediums that rely on creativity.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts released new guidelines for game developers seeking to apply to the 2021 Game Awards. The so called BFI Diversity Standards are being introduced first as a pilot program for a single award at the next show, but if comments from BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry are any indication, such guidelines will stretch into other categories, going forward. A move which will only damage the creative visions of those who pour their lives into telling their stories.

The numbers are dismal.

Jay-Z’s TIDAL Is Currently Under Investigation for Data Fraud In Norway

The accusations for fraud first surfaced in 2018, when a sleuthing reporter at Norwegian publication Dagens Næringsliv discovered streaming manipulation around two exclusive albums: Kanye West’s Life of Pablo and Beyoncé’s Lemonade. Dagens initially secured a TIDAL hard drive, then cross-matched that data against other sources, before declaring that streams for both albums had been grossly inflated. In total, the two albums were allegedly padded with more than 320 million ‘fake streams,’ according to the finding.


Instead of receiving royalty checks that reflected their actual streams, other artists may have been handed payments based on manipulated, reduced play-counts.

‘Fawlty Towers’ Episode to Be Reinstated After John Cleese Attacks its Removal

An episode of sitcom “Fawlty Towers” removed from a streaming site for containing “racial slurs” is to be reinstated. John Cleese had attacked the decision to remove the episode as “stupid,” as well as taking a swipe at those who take a revisionist view of history in the context of the Black Lives Matter debate.

Early on Friday, BBC-owned TV network UKTV announced on Twitter that it had temporarily removed the episode titled “The Germans” from its Gold download service as it contained “racial slurs.” The service said it wished to “review” the episode, and “consider our options.” It said some shows “carry warnings and others are edited.”

It is believed the “racial slurs” are contained in a scene in which the character known as the Major uses the N-word when referring to Caribbean sportsmen.

Later on Friday, UKTV said the episode would be reinstated “in the coming days” with the addition of “extra guidance.”

HBO Removes ‘Gone With the Wind’, Erasing First Black Woman to Win an Oscar

Another massive victory for the “anti-racists”.

HBO Max said the 1939 film was “a product of its time” and depicted “ethnic and racial prejudices” that “were wrong then and are wrong today,” reports BBC News.

The controversy centers around a depiction of slave characters who are content to stay with their owners after slavery is abolished (something that did happen and is not historically inaccurate).

The film’s removal takes on an added layer of ludicrousness when you consider that in deleting the movie, HBO has also erased the first black female Oscar winner from history.

This title was originally "Out of the ashes, a Pheonix."

It only took us days of protesting, eventually involving all 5o states and several other countries, but all four officers involved in the death of George Floyd have finally been charged.

There seems to be reason for hope, despite the added pain and in some cases loss of life that that caused.

But you should see more than one if you can. I have curated a selection, not comprehensive by any means, here.

Because maybe we are getting somewhere after all.
