Netflix has a new show coming out on August 10th, but there's already a storm of controversy threatening the show before it's even begun. The series, Insatiable, centers on a high school girl named Patty. Patty is bullied by pretty much everyone at her school due to her weight. In fact, they actually call her "Fatty Patty" to her face. After a freak accident, Patty loses a ton of weight, revealing (shocker) that she was gorgeous THE WHOLE TIME. Now Patty's after revenge.

Seems pretty straightforward, right? Well, some people claim that this new show is full of fat shaming.

Insatiable (adj.): impossible to satisfy. ????????????

As soon as the first trailer dropped, people flocked to Twitter to unleash their thoughts about the new show and not all of them were thrilled with the premise of a former fat girl seeking revenge on her bullies. We have to admit, there were some fair points here.

Supporters of the show clapped back, however, and insisted that in no way, shape, or form does Insatiable fat shame anyone, least of all the main character Patty. In fact, they argue the irony of Patty's sudden transformation is a critique of the amount of importance people place on superficial beauty standards. Even Alyssa Milano, who stars in the comedy, spoke up to defend the show.

In today's climate, it seems like every little thing ends up getting flagged as being "offensive" to someone. Is this a sign that we as a society are becoming more sympathetic to the plight of others, or are people being waaaay too sensitive? That's a little too deep for our pay grade, so we'll leave it at this: let's give Insatiable a shot. Heck, the first episode isn't even out yet!

What do you think? Are people taking "PC" culture too far, or are they actually on to something? Let us know in the comments!
