US streaming service Netflix issued an apology for its audience after thousands of people came together and signed a petition for the removal of a French teen coming-of-age comedy-drama film 'Cuties.' 

The film which launched earlier this week was called out for its content where people called it inappropriate and said that it sexualized children. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2020 and is written and directed by Maïmouna Doucouré. The film also won a jury award for its direction at the festival. It revolves around the story of a 11-year-old traditional Senegalese Muslim girl who fights her family and gets an escape in a "free-spirited dance crew." 

The official Twitter handle of Netflix tweeted the apology that read, "We're deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties. It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which won an award at Sundance. We’ve now updated the pictures and description."
