Actor and child sexual abuse activist Nathan Forrest Winters has weighed in on the latest controversy surrounding Hollywood, pedophilia, and child porn. As you may know, there is a current debate regarding the Netflix movie Desire  and the accusations by many online that the opening scene contains child pornography.  Argentine director Diego Kaplan has since defended the film and the scene that shows a young child accidentally discover her first orgasm while her sister watches.

Nathan Forrest Winters knows better than anyone else what to look for when it comes to inappropriate relationships in the film industry, child sexual abuse crimes, and working with questionable directors.

He starred in the 1989 movie Clownhouse  with direct Victor Salva ( Jeepers Creepers trilogy, Powder ) before it was learned that Salva had been sexually abusing him for years.

Salva was later convicted on four counts of sexual abuse and is now a registered sex offender. He continues to work in Hollywood, has a thriving career, and has worked with notable actors and actresses such as Rose McGowan of the #metoo movement and #rosearmy.

Winters shared his thoughts on Facebook regarding whether or not he agreed that Desire's opening scene depicts child porn.

Diego Kaplan released a statement to "Indiewire" not only defending the scene but suggesting those who see anything questionable with it, are doing so because there is something wrong with them.

"Everything works inside the spectators' heads, and how you think this scene was filmed will depend on your level of depravity."

Not everyone agrees with Kaplan's excuse. Some take issue that he's putting the blame on viewers.

Many people have spoken out against the film on social media networks and have called for its removal. P.J. Media's Megan Fox first noticed the scene and was so outraged she contacted the F.B.I. She was told to get in touch with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, who Fox reports is investigating.

What do you think about the scene and Nathan Forrest Winter's viewpoint? Do you agree with Diego Kaplan's statement?
