16 “Groundbreaking” Series That Are Actually Problematic TV Shows
Oh, boy. This one. The Netflix series aimed to do good with a storyline about a girl who loses weight and regains her agency. But, in reality, it was problematic as hell. It’s incredibly fatphobic, insinuating that anyone who is overweight is “sick” or just something to be laughed at. The show also makes tasteless jokes about molestation, statutory rape, and the LGBT community. It’s a bit of a shock the show even got made! The most surprising thing, though, is the fact that there are people out there that love it and don’t see the problematic issues!
