“What a shame, this disgusting fatophobia The one who comes. They wear a fatsuit in mid-2022 just to hide an actress is pregnant, turning her into a size 50 who reportedly can’t move. How disgusting.” With these words, one user protested violently after watching the first chapters of the final season of the popular series Telecinco. “Who would have thought that a series like La que se Avecina, full of transphobia, machismo and racism, would not eventually fall into fatphobia,” commented another viewer.
The outrage revolves around the character of Yoli Morcillo, played by Miren Ibarguren. The young woman appears disguised as an obese person and makes fun of the situation. The story is this: For the past few months, Yoli has fallen into depression and eats out of fear. He doesn’t want to leave the house and eats secretly. Her mother, María del Carmen Carrascosa, tries to help her and takes her to an endocrinologist to lose weight. Apparently, it was the actress herself who requested this script change to hide the fact that she was pregnant during this part of the shoot. Despite everything, many viewers didn’t like it.
There are many people who refer to this script twist as “offensiveOthers defend the series: “If you don’t like it, don’t watch it, it’s a series and it’s meant to be funny, and at no point are they making fun of obesity.”
