Netflix About to Hit an All-Time Low
NAAFA urges you to sign the petition demanding that Netflix cancel its upcoming debut of "Insatiable" a hate mongering series aimed at teens.
That a man punching a young woman in the face is being portrayed as a positive act because it resulted in weight loss is unconscionable. The writers of this show have stooped to a new low. Misogyny and hate crimes are NOT appropriate content for teens. Destructive and abusive behavior is NOT an appropriate reaction to bullying for teens or anyone.
Bullying is NOT entertainment. It has serious immediate consequences with very serious long term negative results. It is not acceptable at any age, social level or political station. A few facts about bullying include:
3.2 million students are bullied each year
17% of American students report being bullied 2-3 times a month or more
77% of students reported bullying to authorities
1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying & will only intervene 4% of the time
100,000 students carry a gun to school
School bullying and cyber bullying are increasingly viewed as an important contributor to youth violence, including homicide and suicide
Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in youth ages 10 – 24
NAAFA encourages you to sign the following petition which demands that Netflix cancel distribution of"Insatiable":
