Group Wants Hollywood to Enable Filter for Violent Content
Parents have a simple option when it comes to their children not seeing violent movies or content, they can just not let them watch. However, streaming services do not filter violent content. In wake of recent school gun violence, one group wants to change that.
The Protect Family Rights Coaltion (PFRC) are advocating for filtering technology that would enable parents to block mature content. In 2005, the Family Movie Act was passed but it only addressed physical copies of movies.
As of right now, a lawsuit filed by Warner Bros., Disney, and Fox prevents the filter technology on major streaming surfaces such as Netflix and Amazon. The PFRC has released this video of clips from the PG-13 rated Suicide Squad that show the technology at work. *The video contains graphic violence*.
