Controversial Netflix show, Insatiable, has been renewed for a second season and people are venting their anger online.
The show followed Patty, played by Debby Ryan, who is an overweight, bullied teenager.
After losing a considerable amount of weight due to having her jaw wired-shut over the summer holidays, she seeks revenge on the bullies who used to humiliate her.
Although Insatiable self-labels itself as a satire, there has been a lot of accusations that this show does not handle sensitive topics such as fat shaming and eating disorders well.
Some were left feeling angry upon the announcement.
A 712th reminder that hate watching is still watching. That watching "just to see if it's that bad" is still watching. That watching "because everyone is talking about how bad it is" is still watching.https://t.co/KgXuXFBfcG— ladyteruki (@ladyteruki) September 13, 2018
Literally no one was asking for this.

Although the show didn't perform well with critics, it seems to have an active fanbase.
Despite the uproar, it should be noted that some people were fans of the show and felt that the backlash went too far.

Thank you @netflix for renewing #Insatiable for a 2nd season. Despite the ridiculous backlash and uncalled for negativity the show is funny fresh and means a lot to people who have been through similar things. Amazing news. #Netflix #renewed 🧡— Mike (@MJAANDERTON8) September 13, 2018
I am so god damn happy #Insatiable was renewed for a second season! As a fat girl, There is nothing wrong with the show. It’s satire. The only people I see complaining are skinnier girls and honestly they probably don’t like how skinny women are portrayed as bullies. ITS SATIRE.— paayal (@PaayalPrithika) September 13, 2018
Hate it or love it, there’s no hiding the fact that season two of Insatiable is coming in 2019.
