WASHINGTON, DC -- Netflix's highly-debated new film "Cuties" is now at the center of a possible criminal investigation after a letter penned to the Department of Justice by U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, according to ABC affiliate KTRK.

The film has recently drawn lots of attention after the promotional video was released.

Social media had split opinions on whether or not the scenes were age-appropriate for the young actors. Some went as far as saying they're ending their Netflix subscriptions, circulating the hashtag #CancelNetflix around Twitter.

Cruz calls for officials to investigate if the creators violated any federal laws in regards to the production and distribution of child pornography.

In the letter addressed to Attorney General Bill Barr, Sen. Cruz writes:

"The film routinely fetishizes and sexualizes these pre-adolescent girls as they perform dances simulating sexual conduct in revealing clothing, including at least one scene with partial child nudity. These scenes in and of themselves are harmful. And it is likely that the filming of this movie created even more explicit and abusive scenes, and that pedophiles across the world in the future will manipulate and imitate this film in abusive ways.

  1. Just one example of why everyone in congress, Republican and Democrat, hates this piece of human shit and embarrassment to the State of Texas. Say Ted, why don’t you work on repairing some of the damage the orange buffoon has inflicted on the nation instead of what they’re doing in Hollywood?

    1. Screw you, you sick SOB. Trump is making American great again and legitimate again. Now that the scamdemic is starting to wind down it will get even better. Don’t get angry because Cruz wants to protect children. You’re just going to have to find some other past time to keep you busy.

    2. Yes he is an embarrassment to our state Mark. But you know who hates him the most is probably his wife (Mrs. Cruz) for allowing trump to say she was an ugly cow and he still supported him.

    3. I knew you’d be against them investigating this series. Sure you haven’t seen it…..you’re one sick lady. You prob watch toddlers and tiaras with Chrissy Tiegen you sicko. Mark Turner has been officially outed as a pedophile who would rather we don’t remove shows that sexualize little girls. Soon she’ll be moving to California so she can “identify” as a pre-teen and engage in lawful pedophilia…..miss Turner I knew you were an I’ll informed hypocrite but never a pedophile

    1. Fero1A is using the name AlbertVelarde to try to smear this man whoever he is lol. Talk about a resentment. I wonder what their history is and if therapy would help?

  2. Members of the Senate have more important things to worry about than this. I assure you orange buffoon loving idiots that if any laws were broken, the DA’s office in Los Angeles will be on it like stupid on an orange buffoon supporter. Cruz needs to go to work or resign.

  3. Have you noticed that Cruz spends an inordinate amount of time on this subject? Kinda like people who are terrified of homosexuals because they think they might be one.

  4. Election- meddling movie. Republican Cruz’s Instagram page supporter claims the Democrats OBAMA’S are to blame because they were recently placed on the board at Netflix. So Politically motivated investigation is what Repugs do best. Social media should di its part pull comments in support of conspiracy theory radicals and on FBI watchlist: Q-Non

  5. Q-Anon Cruz Must’ve watched Cuties. in order to. criticize Cuties Therefore ‘Texas Ted’ guilty as well of viewing ‘child porn’ Kin Netflix said ‘Cruze, Don’t Criticize Cuties until you’ve viewed Cuties”
