The series ‘Round 6’ became one of the biggest hits in Netflix history and fell in the public’s liking. Recently, the production has started making headlines again – but not for good reason.
According to the RD1 site, city councilors in the city of Içara, located in the state of Santa Catarina, have created a proposal forcing the streaming platform to remove the title from its catalog under “violent content” and the possibility of impacting “the mental health of children and adolescents”.
Created by Edson Freitas, of the MDB party, the motion is a response to parents’ concerns about the messages the show may convey, stating that the episodes contain “explicit violence, psychological torture, suicide, trafficking. organs and sex scenes, using simple children’s games like: “Fries 1,2,3”, “Tug of war”, “Balls” to murder in “cold blood” people who do not reach not the final goal ”.
The proposal was approved on October 20 and has yet to be voted on in plenary. Another rationale cited by the counselor was that “in addition to the ease with which children access this material, there is the impact it can have on the mental health of children and adolescents, especially those who are are already, for some reason, fragile. “
