In defense: Netflix's new original series Insatiable has been unanimously deemed a failure by entertainment outlets alike. But on Thursday, Alyssa Milano asked viewers not to judge the show by its 'trailer'

Controversial: Insatiable follows a high school girl named Patty, played by Disney's Debby Ryan, who is fat-shamed by her classmates

Fat-shaming: Ryan's character has the nickname 'fatty patty'

'Skinny is magic': Patty's life takes a surprising turn when a homeless man punches her in the face over summer break and she's forced to eat her meals through a straw. Thanks to a wired jaw and a three-month juice diet, Patty is able to shed her excess weight and return to school with a new and improved 'skinny' body

Milano addressed the fat-shaming accusations from fans. 'At the end of the day, the show is a satire that deals with thematic issues like body image,' she explained. 'It's more about what happens when you do shame someone and how that trauma affects their lives'

Scathing reviews: Despite Netflix's best efforts, reviewers had nothing but negative things to say about the upcoming series—out August 10. Vox called the series 'obscenely cruel and terminally dull'

According to Twitter, Insatiable has at least one influential supporter—Khloe Kardashian. 'I'm so excited to watch this!! I need another TV show to binge on!!' the reality star tweeted after watching the series trailer

Executive producer Ryan Seacrest also chimed in: 'This one's going to be a rager'

Following the release of the trailer, Change.org —a free online petition platform—launched a petition asking Netflix to pull the series. The petition has more than 228,000 signatures

Debby Ryan combated the controversy surrounding the series back in July with a lengthy Instagram note. 'As someone who cares deeply about the way our bodies, especially women's, are shamed and policed in society, I was so excited to work on Insatiable because it's a show that addresses and confronts those ideas through satire,' she wrote
