Hoyts Australia have angered the public for advertising a MA15+ movie during their “prams at the pix” screening time.
People have taken to social media to share their outrage, questioning why Hoyts would run a “prams at the pix ” screening of “50 shades freed.”
The movie is rated MA15+, but they are allowing children under 5 to accompany their mums for free.
“Children under 5 get free admission to see 50 Shades Freed, a BDSM themed film with “strong sex scenes.”
Hoyts creates, promotes and profits from this event but somehow believes they have no ethical obligation towards children.”
The FB page, Stop the sexualisation of Children wrote, “Hoyts Australia is running a “prams and pix ” screening of 50 shades freed.
“It is rated MA15+ but they are allowing children under 5 to accompany their mums. Their reasoning?? They are an exhibitor not a distributor and they are not into discriminating who can see it.
“Clearly apart from the fact that under 15 breaches the law. This is not acceptable. No matter how young, little minds absorb and little eyes see and little ears hear….”
Do you think this is inappropriate, or is it really up to each individuals choice?
