On the 12th of September Netflix announced that it would be continuing a second season of their series Insatiable, and this has a good amount of people pretty upset. Insatiable is a Netflix original series about a girl nick named Fatty Patty (played by Debby Ryan) who looses a lot of weight during summer vacation due to having her mouth wired shut. She returns to school and is ready to take revenge on all of the people who made fun of her.
A large reason why there are so many upset viewers of this show is because they feel that Insatiable does not handle sensitive topics well such as eating disorders and being over weight. Viewers are also not pleased with the way they deal with the LGBTQ issues, or the rather poorly timed jokes about statutory rape.
This show is not meant to be funny or having you laughing, it is meant to address sensitive issues that not many people are willing to even talk about. Some even feel that the issues are all addressed in the wrong way. It was said by BuzzFeed’s Jenna Guillaume “the people Insatiable is claiming to represent are the very people it will hurt the most.”
While a lot of people are upset that Netflix has decided to continue a second season of Insatiable, there are also a lot of people who enjoy the series and are looking forward to the next seasons release in 2019.
