22 Teen Dramas Moments That Were Inexcusably Problematic https://t.co/CxpHWazzVH— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) August 3, 2020
-When Annie hit and killed a homeless man on 90210 while drunken driving and had very few repercussions.
"And then his nephew found out and used it to blackmail her into dating him. Eventually, Annie confessed to the crime and got a slap on the wrist for it (a short-lived house arrest that happened between seasons). Yeah, that would never happen in real life."
-When Will suspended Marley for refusing to dress in a revealing, provocative outfit on stage in Glee.
-Eevery time Chuck attempted to sexually assault his classmates on Gossip Girl.
"Chuck Bass gave no shits about consent. First he tried to assault Jenny in the pilot, and then when they did sleep together in Season 3, Jenny 'gave her consent' but actually could not, since she was a minor. She was at literal rock bottom, trying to go to Nate for help, completely alone and intending to 'save' her virginity for someone she trusted. In comes Chuck and he asks her to have sex with him and she agrees. And the first time he and Blair had sex is scarily similar. WOW IT'S ALMOST LIKE THERE'S A PATTERN."
-When Elite glossed over Nadia's racist remarks toward Lu and made them friends.
"Given that Lu never even apologized for her racist treatment of Nadia I think it’s really fucked up that her disgusting behavior was ignored like it never happened."
-When Kelly had multiple relationships with adults as a minor on Saved by the Bell.
"First there was her boss, Jeff, whose lust for Kelly was inappropriate based on two things: age and workplace authority. Then there was her grandfather’s attorney, who was at least creeping into his mid-twenties as he was creeping on a 17-year-old Miss Kapowski. And finally there was Kelly’s cultural anthropology professor."
