“Insatiable”, a new series from Netflix, is accused of making fun of overweight people and a petition asking for its withdrawal had already collected more than 120,000 signatures on Tuesday. The series, which will be available on the streaming website from the 10th of August, with Alyssa Milano, Debby Ryan, brings to the stage a teenage girl obese laughing stock of his high school classmates. Become skinny, she only dreams of one thing: revenge. The petition asserts that the series encourages young women to “assess their value from their bodies” and “to perpetuate not only the toxicity of the culture of regimes, but also the objectification of the female body”. “We still have time to cancel this series, which plays on the insecurities of young girls who think that to be happy and worth something, it is necessary to lose weight”.
