Netflix under Investigation in Hungary over Lesbian Kiss in Children's Cartoon

Hungary’s national media regulator is investigating streaming giant Netflix over a lesbian kiss between two teenage girls, which features in one of its children’s cartoons.

The children’s cartoon, Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous, which features a lesbian kiss in one of its episodes, could violate Hungary’s 2021 law prohibiting LGBT-themed material targeting children.

Hungary’s National Media and Communications Authority (NMHH) announced it would investigate Netflix after complaints from concerned parents on the conservative petition site CitizenGo.

Hungary news outlet, the Magyar Nemzet national newspaper, reports that the series targets children as young as seven.

During the cartoon’s ninth episode of the fifth season, a kiss between two teenage characters takes place, and “to confirm the naturalness of the homosexual relationship, the young people’s family and friends also approve and support them in the story, saying how happy the two ‘girlfriends’ are together,” the paper reported.

Although the lesbian kiss could breach the Hungarian law prohibiting LGBT content aimed at children, it is not clear if the NMHH will be able to take legal action against Netflix because the streaming giant is registered in the Netherlands, meaning media regulators may need to raise the issue with Dutch authorities before any action can take place.

Media backlash

Hungary faced backlash from Brussels and the establishment media over their law prohibiting schools and media from promoting homosexual or transgender content to children, which characterizes the law as the “Hungarian anti-LGBT law.”

A government spokesman defended the legislation, saying: “There are contents which children under a certain age can misunderstand and which may have a detrimental effect on their development at the given age, or which children simply cannot process, and which could therefore confuse their developing moral values or their image of themselves or the world.”

But the European Commission announced it would sue the government in Budapest for allegedly violating EU-level laws on media freedom.

If the investigation leads to legal proceedings, Hungary will join other governments who have taken action against Netflix, with a Texas grand jury in the U.S indicting the streaming giant on charges of child pornography for the kid’s film Cuties.

The decline in popularity of Netflix has continued to plummet as the streaming site faces accusations of embedding ‘woke’ and LGBT ideology in its content.

Though Hollywood has refused to curtail content for Hungarian children, companies such as Disney quickly removed a lesbian kiss from the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film in many Islamic countries.
