Have you heard about MTVâ€™s controversial new show Faking It? Itâ€™s about two teenage girls who are mistakenly outed as lesbians, which launches them to instant celebrity status. They decided to keep pretending they are a couple so they can remain popular.
Faking It showrunner Carter Covington, a gay man, has told BuzzFeed that he initially found the premise of Faking It offensive, but changed his mind when he decided that the idea was plausible in a modern high school, where having your sexuality be your â€śthingâ€ť can help rather than hinder.
On the other hand, Hope Schreiber from Complex points out â€śIf this goes wrong, it'll be the teen sitcom version of drunk girls making out at the party for a crowd of cheering guys.â€ť
Yeah, weâ€™re really not sure about this one â€¦ have a look at the trailer for yourself.
