writer/activist Virgie Tovar accuses writer/director Sam Irby of plagiarism, receives backlash

Virgie Tovar made the following post to instagram in which she argued that the fat positive pool party scene from episode 4 of Shrill (Hulu) had been lifted directly from her own works. She either didn't know or didn't care that the writer and director of that episode wasn't Lindy West (the writer of the book the show is based on) but was actually Samantha Irby (@wordscience on Twitter) a black writer/director.

Author Ijeoma Oluo wasn't having it.



























Ira Madison and Roxane Gay also voiced their support for Sam.







Have you watched Shrill on Hulu yet? Do you follow any fat acceptance people on twitter or IG?
