Aminata "Amy" Diop is the main protagonist of the 2020 controversial Netflix anti-muslim propaganda and child sexual exploitation film, Cuties. She was portrayed by Fathia Youssouf.
Why She's Ugly
Important note: This character is extremely controversial for reasons explained below. No positive pointers/section will be permitted on this page. Anyone on this wiki who tries to add redeeming qualities will have their edits reverted.
- As for the main problem with the film, Amy is too young to be joining a dance group that relies on twerking, which is believed to be a red flag since twerking is considered to be a sexual dance style, and the age of consent in France is 15. Think about it.
- It's not a bad thing for wanting to be treated as an adult once in a while, but dressing up in revealing outfits and attracting pedophiles and child predators makes her decision even worse if you connect the pieces.
- Amy is the supposed protagonist that the audience is going to sympathize with or relate to, but the way she was written and portrayed makes it harder to feel bad for her.
- Similar to Brittany Miller from the David Seville and the Chipmunks series, some of her outfits are far too inappropriate and revealing for her age.
- Despite being bullied by Angelica and her friends, she still decides to hang out with them only to be one of the popular ones.
- Some would debate that the popular girls influenced her to do immoral things, but Amy did those of her own choice and gets away scot-free:
- Pushed Yasmine into a river while staring blankly as she drowns just so she can replace her in the dance competition.
- Scoffed at her mother as she fell down the stairs.
- Twerking in front of the security guards to go inside laser tag.
- Seduced her older cousin.
- Took her undergarments off, took a nude photo, and shared it on social media.
- Even Angelica, Coumba, and Jess called her out for this but that may only be because it tarnished their reputation.
- Stabbed a classmate with a pencil after being exposed for everything she's done.
- Even if she wasn't poorly written, Amy is still a generic "bullied protagonist" caricature.
- Amy's also a horrible person to both her mom and her younger brother.
- Amy's redemption felt anti-climactic and forced. After dancing tryouts, she just came to a realization thinking she wanted to become a normal girl, and not dance like a stripper nor be a Muslim.
- There wasn't even any build-up as to why she suddenly jumped to this conclusion.
- Even after everything she's done, Amy didn't learn from the consequences of her actions, nor did she even get any comeuppance.
- She doesn't seem to be bothered about the nude photo she shared online.
- She wasn't investigated for sharing said photo.
- She didn't get therapy for all the things she did.
