Netflix has been under fire due to the streaming of the controversial French film, Cuties, over its sexualisation of young stars.

Now, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have also been getting criticized for striking a deal with the streaming giant in the midst of mounting criticism and calls for a boycott.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were urged to address the issue and break their silence as social media users attacked them for not calling out the company.

"The Obamas and Prince Harry & Meghan have contracts with Netflix. If they really want to use their influence for good, they’ll tell Netflix to drop 'Cuties',” said one user.

"Silence from @Netflix employees Michelle, Barack, Megan [sic] and Harry on Cuties,” added another.

"Meghan & Harry have yet to speak against Netflix’s streaming of Cuties. To quote them: ‘If you’re complacent, you’re complicit.’ If dish-soap was enough to irk Meghan, then why hasn’t this?! Come on Meghan & Harry; it’s time to ‘unlock action and inspire hope’ We’re waiting..." said a third.

"One would expect Harry and Meghan having done their research before signing a deal with Netflix, the company who produced and aired the film 'Cuties' - which is basically child pornography,” another chimed in.
