Netflix CEO Reed Hastings appeared on CCN on Thursday but was not asked a single question regarding the streaming platform’s controversial movie “Cuties," which has been accused of legitimizing pedophilia.

Poppy Harlow of “CNN Newsroom” dodged any questions that may have placed Netflix in a bad light, and instead praising the platform for its diversity initiatives.

But she notably failed to address the elephant in the room, “Cuties,” which caused outrage worldwide from both left and right.

"CNN Newsroom co-anchor Poppy Harlow gave Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings an almost entirely softball interview,” reported Newsbusters.

“She even found time to praise the company for being ahead of its competitors in ‘diversity’ programming and leadership.”

Netflix came under fire last month when it released a poster for the movie “Cuties” featuring pre-teen girls in sexually suggestive poses.

The company issued an apology after the colossal backlash:

“We’re deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for ‘Cuties.’ It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film, which premiered at Sundance. We’ve now updated the pictures and description."

Award-winning “Cuties” is about a girl who joins a dance group called “The Cuties” at school with her friends.

Those defending the film claimed Netflix misrepresented the story’s content with its poster, arguing the French advertisements were less suggestive.

But the #CancelNetflix hashtag quickly began trending upon the movie's release on Wednesday, where clips revealed the poster indeed reflected the movie’s content.

Robby Starbuck tweeted:

“Do you know how sets work? I do. I’ve directed some of the biggest stars in the world. A director on the Cuties set and a choreographer told 11-year-olds to simulate sexual moves repeatedly."

"What they did should have them charged and registered as sex offenders."

“Just got off the phone with @netflix customer service. They said that as of this time, they have no plans to remove the pedo film ‘cuties’ from their platform. Keep fighting until they pull it down. They won’t do it unless it starts affecting their bottom line,” tweeted Logan Hall.

On Wednesday, Republican lawmaker Matt Schaefer demanded the state’s attorney general launch an investigation into ‘Cuties’ for potential violations of child pornography and child exploitation.

Schafer announced on twitter that he had asked Attorney General Paxton for an investigation on Thursday.

"I have asked Texas Attorney General Paxton’s office to investigate the @netflix film “Cuties” for possible violations of child exploitation and child pornography laws. #CUTIES #txlege"
