The Exploitation of Dakota Fanning

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

Currently, there is a movie being filmed in the Carolinas called Hounddog. The Movie stars Dakota Fanning as a young girl who turns to the music of Elvis to escape the horrors of both physical and sexual abuse. One scene in particular displays a nude Fanning being brutally raped.

Dakota Fanning is 12 years old.

I don’t know if I would go as far as to state this is child pornography, but it is definitely inappropriate at best. Please visit the links below to learn more about the movie, and how Fanning along with two other child stars, were exploited during the making of this movie.

Now, here is a petition set up to demand stronger enforcement of our child exploitation laws to protect children like Fanning from producers, agents, and parents who do not have a problem with exploiting children for money or for ‘an Oscar’. After reading the stories above and then reading the petition as well as performing some research of your own, you can decide for yourself whether or not to sign the petition. After you make your decision, please come back here and share that decision with us, along with why you arrived at that decision.
