'Insatiable' Cast Defend Fat-shaming Backlash At Premiere

  • 6 years ago
When Netflix released the trailer for its new series 'Insatiable', about an obese high school girl who suddenly loses weight and gains popularity, an online storm erupted. A petition called for the show's cancellation ahead of its release, saying it appeared to promote the narrative that women had to be thin to be successful. On August 9, the day before the show was set to air, the cast, led by Debby Ryan, turned out for a premiere in Hollywood and addressed the controversy.
