Netflix's Insatiable faces backlash over 'fat-shaming' https://t.co/eZJY3hxfS8— BBC News (UK) (@BBCNews) July 20, 2018
in the Netflix show Debby Ryan plays an overweight teen (in a fat suit) who turns thin over the summer and seeks revenge on her bullies.
the internet was no amused.
This is trash. Netflix I expected a company that’s prided itself on changing the faces in entertainment and inclusivity to be better to fat people. This story like is uncreative and fatphobic. It’s also incredibly insulting to attempt to tell an story of a fat women with a thin— Savannah✨ (@GirlcraftWorld) July 19, 2018
Not very into the premise of Fatty Patty... a teenager stops eating and loses weight and then when “conventionally attractive” takes revenge on her schoolmates? This is still telling kids to lose weight to “win.” The fat shaming is inherent and pretty upsetting.— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) July 20, 2018
The show Insatiable on @netflix looks like a piece of utter trash. Don't watch shows where people wear fat suits. Don't watch shows where they try to turn fat phobia and hatred into a joke.— Amanda Levitt (@FatBodyPolitics) July 19, 2018
Alyssa Milano, who also stars in the show:
We are not shaming Patty. We are addressing (through comedy) the damage that occurs from fat shaming. I hope that clears it up. Also, this article does a good job of explaining it more: https://t.co/WoR8R7TjqR #Insatiable https://t.co/GFkDdsn1uh— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) July 19, 2018
