The first trailer for the new Netflix show 'Insatiable' dropped and since then it has been causing controversy. 

Many people have been criticising the show for fat shaming. 

Change.org petition urged Netflix to cancel Insatiable, with organiser 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.”

The petition (At time of writing) has over 110,000 signatures out of 115,000.

A coming of rage story. Insatiable, starring Debby Ryan, arrives August 10 on Netflix.
