Netflix’s Bridgerton Creeps Onto Porn Sites

Netflix has a new hit show that is making waves everywhere. “Bridgerton” has been one of the most streamed television programs over the last month. However, Netflix executives have a battle on their hands as the show’s sex scenes are illegally ending up on adult video sites.

Bridgerton Details

Set in Regency London during the glamourous debutante season, the popular program stars Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor. One of the draws of the show, produced by Shonda Rhimes and created by Chris Van Dusen, is the steamy sex scenes between the two young actors. The scenes are so scintillating that they are ending up on various porn sites, despite not being authorized to air in this manner.

Netflix Fights Back

Netflix has issued warnings to the sites regarding this blatant misuse of their intellectual property. However, it is challenging to police and enforce this obstruction. What is most concerning to many with the streaming leader is that the scenes are being aired alongside obscene footage. The executives are upset that the show’s carefully crafted and curated scenes are being paired with this negative material as if they are related. In addition, the actors involved are distressed that the scenes are being exploited.

Not the First Time Netflix Has Been at the Center of Controversy

Earlier this year, Netflix found itself in the middle of another controversy when it released a poster for its movie “Cuties.” Critics contended that the poster exploited preteen girls by posing them in sexually suggestive positions. As a result of the unending backlash, Netflix changed the poster and had to explain the true purpose of the film.
