Alyssa Milano Responds to Insatiable Fat-Shaming Backlash

Netflix has yet to comment on the petition or the response from those on Twitter. "Reborn" as a hot person, she then uses her newfound powers of conventional attractiveness to exact revenge on those who had previously wronged her.

Similarly, Debby's co-star Alyssa Milano has insisted that the show doesn't aim to shame its lead character, rather "address (through comedy) the damage that occurs from fat shaming". "I hope that clears it up". Insatiable starring Debby Ryan is the story of a student who is bullied because of her appearance. One fateful night, "Fatty Patty" takes a punch to the face outside a convenience store; spends the summer with her jaw wired shut; loses a ton of weight; and gets her hair, makeup, and clothing updated to show up on the first day of school looking like a knockout.

But she did post a paragraph from a recent Teen Vogue article that described the new comedy series. After the trailer was released on Thursday, many took to social media to denounce the show. But now that she finds herself suddenly thin, Patty is out for payback against anyone who has ever made her feel bad about herself. Milano plays his wife, Coralee.

And yes, Debby Ryan wears a fat suit for her portrayal of "Fatty Patty".


Netflix describes "Insatiable" as "a dark, twisted revenge comedy" in which Patty's rage runs "deep". Attuned to that, Patty sets out on a quest to make everyone pay for how they treated her (even if you really should just let karma deal with the wrongdoers in its good, sweet time). This is disgusting! You are the face of the Women's Movement and THIS?

When she returns to school, everyone's stunned by her physical change. "If someone's treatment of you is rooted in how your body looks, that says a lot about them, not you", a part of the highlighted reads.
