Over 100,000 People Sign Petition for Netflix to Cancel Controversial Series ‘Insatiable’
The first trailer for an upcoming teen series ‘Insatiable’ starring Debby Ryan has been released, but the trailer was met with huge criticism. The show is about a girl who is bullied for her size, but becomes attractive to her peers after losing weight.
A Change.org petition urges Netflix to cancel Insatiable, with organizer Florence Given writing: For so long, the narrative has told women and young impressionable girls that in order to be popular, to have friends, to be desirable for the male gaze, and to some extent be a worthy human… that we must be thin.”
She believes that this show will not only objectify women, but also perpetutate the toxicity of diet culture. If you are interested in participating, you can also sign the petition here.
