Dear Netflix: Please cancel ‘Emily in Paris’ and save our eyes from these lewks
Ah, Emily in Paris. Have we ever seen a more reviled piece of media in 2020? Or, well, it certainly seemed like. Many called the Netflix comedy series the worst thing that 2020 has released. Considering that we were battling a global pandemic? That’s pretty bad, you know? The criticisms ranged from stereotypes to racism to sexism to, basically, any kind of bad “ism” that can pop up in storytelling.
People were enraged when Emily in Paris got a Golden Globe nod over the much more beloved other Netflix series Bridgerton. Which, you know, is fair. We still get a collective twitch at that. Unfortunately, according to Netflix, 58 million people watched Emily in Paris, which made it their most highly viewed comedy in 2020. We’re guessing at least half of those people were hate-watching it.
So, you know, maybe don’t watch Emily in Paris season 2 on Netflix ironically next time. Because, dear God, the fact that this got a second season and series like GLOW and I Am Not Okay With This got the boot hurts us deeply. We’re in pain here. Either way, filming is officially underway, and they even have poor Lily Collins in stupid outfits! So here is Twitter making fun of Emily in Paris.
why do they keep dressing her like harper from wizards of waverly place https://t.co/JlghGSLtBo

She does look like a character in an Disney Channel Original Series
French people, be straight with us, you would scream if you saw her walking down the street in these outfits, right? Right.

Writers with hot takes are priming their keyboards about what a terrible show Netflix’s Emily in Paris is.

This can’t be fashion
No one is wearing these sorts of outfits seriously, are they? Hello? Someone?
the fact that emily in paris got a season two and julie and the phantoms still hasn’t been renewed is my villain origin story

When is Julie and the Phantoms getting its season 2, Netflix?
FYI, Julie and the Phantoms is a better show than Emily in Paris. C’mon Netflix, priorities!

The true horror story of 2021
We’re stuck with her, aren’t we?
I bet season 2 of Emily In Paris is going to be about her going viral for a deeply average selfie of her with her vaccine card

Behold, a plot point that will probably happen.

You are not wrong, friend.
Her Simlish would probably sound better than her French, btw.
