“Rubbish” for some, “pornography of the rich” for others, the film with scenes of sex and violence very explicit is in the ranking of the most viewed content on the platform in the USA, Great Britain, Portugal and other countries, being compared by viewers ” Fifty Shades of Gray “.
Duffy had a very different reaction to the existence of the film and its success and establishing a parallel between the story and what it suffered, says that Netflix was “irresponsible” when showing the film.
“‘365 Days’ glamorizes the brutal reality of sex trafficking, kidnapping and rape. This shouldn’t be anyone’s idea of entertainment, nor should it be described as such or marketed in that way,” he writes in the open letter.
Recalling that it is estimated that there are 25 million people currently trafficked worldwide, the artist adds that “it saddens Netflix to provide a platform for this ‘cinema’ that eroticizes kidnapping and distorts sexual violence and trafficking like a film. “Sexy.” I can’t imagine how Netflix could have despised how negligent, insensitive and dangerous this is. It even caused some girls recently jovially to ask Michele Morrone, the main actor in the film, to kidnap them. “
At no point in the letter does Duffy ask the platform to remove the film from view, but leaves little to speculation that this is the attitude the platform should take: “We all know that Netflix does not host material that glamorizes pedophilia, racism, homophobia, genocide or any other crime against humanity. The world would rightly rise and scream. “
Duffy also calls on the head of Netlflix to use his resources and the talent of his filmmakers to create content that “represents the truth of the harsh and terrible reality of what ‘365 Days’ sought to transform into a relaxed entertainment job”.
