A new artwork threatens the fans of Netflix ..
The owners of the Netflix platform were exposed to a new crisis a few days after they were attacked recently following the release of the French movie "Cuties", which leads to a decline in the shares of this platform for the public.
Many people previously accused the Netflix platform of child sexual abuse after the screening of the movie Qutz, which shocked many of the audience and had negative reactions towards it, as the young heroines appeared in scenes of a sexual nature that violated their childhood and innocence, which called on thousands of followers to call for a boycott of Netflix, which was arranged. Netflix has to withdraw the film from some countries, especially the Arab countries.

For its part, Netflix responded, explaining that the quotation of the work does not mean their agreement or adoption of the author's ideas, which they are completely against, especially that it is a personal opinion that has nothing to do with the series, and about his presence as a consultant producer, it said that there is nothing but a guarantee of preserving the text and the drama only.
On the other hand, former US President Barack Obama has also previously commented on this work, describing the trilogy "The Three Bodies Problem" in 2017 as "just an interesting wild imagination."
It was previously published in the first part of the trilogy as a series of articles in the Chinese magazine Science Fiction World in 2006, before it was compiled into a book in 2008. The serial novel has received praise from critics in China who admire the delicate mixture that came. In it, combining mathematics, physics, and science fiction, along with some philosophical elements.
The novel won the Galaxy Prize in 2006, the most famous science fiction prize in China, and was translated into English by Chinese writer Qin Liu, who won it equally with the original author of the novel Liu Shishin, the Hugo International Prize for the best novel in 2015, in the first precedent for winning an Asian novel. Translated by the award, this is what prompted Netflix to turn the series and the novel into a drama.
