Duffy Calls Netflix For Removing The Movie ‘365 Days’ That Glamorizes Rape

The Welsh singer-songwriter Duffy, who revealed that she had been kidnapped and raped this year, wrote an open letter to Netflix‘s chief executive officer Reed Hastings and required removal of Polish erotic drama ‘365 Days’ because the movie glamorizes sexual violence.

Duffy wrote as follows regarding the movie:

“365 Days’ glamorizes the brutal reality of sex trafficking, kidnapping, and rape. This should not be anyone’s idea of entertainment, nor should it be described as such, or be commercialized in this manner.”

Aimee Anne Duffy, who received the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Rockferry’ added by pointing out to the streaming platform:

“We all know Netflix would not host material glamorizing pedophilia, racism, homophobia, genocide, or any other crimes against humanity. (…) And so, I am compelled to speak on their behalf, and to ask you to right this wrong; to commit the resources of Netflix, and the skills of its talented film-makers, to producing and broadcasting content that portrays the truth of the harsh and desperate reality of what ‘365 Days’ has sought to turn into a work of casual entertainment.”

Expressing that rape and sexual abuse are absolutely not agents of the entertainment industry, the singer continued:

“If all of you at Netflix take nothing from this open letter but these final words, I will be content. You have not realized how ‘365 Days’ has brought great hurt to those who have endured the pains and horrors that this film glamorizes, for entertainment and for dollars. What I and others who know these injustices need is the exact opposite – a narrative of truth, hope, and to be given a voice.”

However, Netflix has not taken the required actions to remove the movie despite all of the cogent grounds so far.
