Reed Hastings — not someone named ‘Kim Martin Morrow’ — is the CEO and co-founder of Netflix and Hastings was not charged with porn. According to a claim making rounds, "Kim Martin Morrow the CEO of Netflix has just been charged with 15 charges for child pornography and 31,000 files have been found on his personal computers for child porn from ages 8 and as young as toddlers." However, Marrow is not the CEO of Netflix, it is Reed Hastings. Moreover, no one at the company goes by the name Kim Martin Morrow.

The claims of pornography surfaced after Netflix released the French film ‘Cuties’ was met with criticism from subscribers and other internet users. Many say the film inappropriately sexualizes girls as young as 11, leading internet users to call for subscribers to #CancelNetflix.

The claim is also uses the "SaveOurChildren" hashtag, which is linked to the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory. QAnon followers promote the belief that President Donald Trump is working covertly to bring down a child trafficking ring organized by popular celebrities and prominent Democrats. The FBI considers QAnon a potential domestic terrorism threat.
