People in Ukraine think “Emily in Paris” is “offensive”. Oleksandr Tkachenko said that the way Petra, a character from Ukraine, is portrayed in season 2 of the show was “offensive.” The show was on Netflix in December.
Emily (Lily Collins) is an American executive who works in Paris. She has to deal with the fallout from sleeping with her friend’s boyfriend, Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), as well as the demands of her job and the cultural barriers that exist between her and her Parisian coworkers.
She goes to a French class for beginners to help her get used to the language. She meets Petra, played by Daria Panchenko, in the class.
Petra, on the other hand, makes a bad impression on Emily when she steals clothes from a local mall and encourages Emily to do the same. She then runs off into the streets of Paris.
“In “Emily in Paris,” we see a picture of a Ukrainian woman that isn’t right. It is also rude. Will people outside of Ukraine see us as such? The people who steal, want to get everything for free, and are afraid of being deported are called “thieves.” Not at all “Two days after the second season came out, he wrote a post on his official Telegram account.
He said that while he watched the first season and thought it was “pretty good entertainment,” he now has “a few thoughts.”
In the movie “The Last Mercenary,” most of the streets in Paris were shot in Kiev.
“In addition, because our culture has become more popular, people in Europe and the United States have heard about our artists and more. Only about Oksana Lyniv, tennis player Elina Svitolina, singer Jamal, and designer Vito Kin: I don’t know much about them.”
“But this isn’t going to be enough. Our fight against stereotypes will go on. It used to be that Ukrainian men were mostly shown as gangsters in the 90s and 2000. Over time, that has changed a lot.”
CNN has asked Netflix for an answer.
A favourite of fans?
When the first season of “Emily in Paris” came out in 2020, some French people didn’t like it because it used old stereotypes about Paris and its people.
More recently, Emily’s new love interest, a British banker named Alfie (Lucien Laviscount), has been getting mixed reviews from people who have seen the show.
“I don’t like how they’ve shown Alfie in Emily in Paris,” one person tweeted. “British people would never be that cringey.”
A second person said that Alfie in Emily in Paris is “really the stereotypical British guy who likes to go to the pub.”
Another person tweeted: “I am in love with Alfie from Emily in Paris. I love him.”
Despite the show’s critics, viewers have always liked it.
The first season was watched by 58 million people in the first four weeks, according to a press release. It was Netflix’s most popular comedy show of 2020, too.
