Netflix will not withdraw the Polish film "365 days" from its offer, despite numerous protests. On Friday an open letter in this case was written by Welsh singer Duffy.
In a letter to Reed Hastings, the director general of Netflix, she noted that the film promotes bad patterns and sexual violence. She wrote that she herself was a victim of a kidnapping, which left a permanent mark on her mind. Meanwhile, the film shows how the victim of the assault falls in love with the kidnapper.
The singer's letter, published by Deadline, was a follow-up to a petition on Change.org calling for the removal of a film from the site. Its authors argue that the film is an abuse and propagates the so-called Stockholm syndrome. At the end of the weekend, over 63,000 signatures came under it (the goal is to reach 75,000).
A spokesman for Netflix said the site would not withdraw the film. He noted that Netflix did not participate in its production, it only bought a license, and "365 days" was previously distributed in theaters of several countries. He added that anyone who thinks it's inappropriate, doesn't have to watch the movie.
