Netflix heeft de tv-reeks The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance na één seizoen afgevoerd en daardoor onbewust nog meer olie op het vuur gegooid van de recente controverse rond de film Mignonnes, die de streamingdienst al veel abonnees zou hebben gekost.
Volgens sommigen promoot Mignonnes namelijk de seksuele uitbuiting van kinderen, terwijl de film eigenlijk de problematiek aan de kaak probeert te stellen.
Hoe dan ook begrijpen veel mensen op Twitter niet waarom Netflix The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, die de Emmy voor Beste Kinderprogramma won, afvoert, maar een ‘pedofiele’ film als Mignonnes verdedigt.

Per the io9 report, Netflix has cancelled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Maybe they shouldn't have bought Cuties and put that money into this amazing series. Hopefully Amazon or Hulu will pick it up and finish what Netflix started. pic.twitter.com/81IyKhbxXA

You cancel "The Dark Crystal" but you keep "Cuties" and "Big Mouth" on your catalogue. Fuck you @netflix if I wanted to see any type of cancer, I would go to a chemotherapy room. https://t.co/OqUwf5Gx9l

Just cancelled my Netflix subscription because shows like Cuties that sexualize 11 year old twerking girls somehow get the go ahead but Dark Crystal season 2 gets cancelled after winning an emmy? I’m so done pic.twitter.com/DlXaIpzMgc

So Netflix gives the thumbs up to trash like Cuties and Big Mouth and wants to remake a sh*tty live action Last Airbender, but cancels Dark Crystal, Sabrina, and like 50 other actually good things? Is Beastars still getting a second season or did they cancel it too?

Netflix: cancels the dark crystal, the best show of the decade.
Also Netflix: continues to support cuties
2020 is just constant disappointment ?

. @Netflix will release Cuties and in the same breath kill off the Dark Crystal as if that's not the biggest gem not only on their service, but truthfully in cinematic history. One of the few things worth staying subscribed for at this point.

still, why is Cuties still on Netflix, while they cancel good Shows like the dark Crystal (i know there is a difference, but it still pisses me off)
— joey visser (@mrfrits94) September 21, 2020
