She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was doing good until recently when the people started hating on her for twerking with Megan Thee Stallion in one of the post-credit scenes of the show. Despite the director of the show saying she does not want to sexualize her female characters, it keeps happening. The series also gained controversy for not depicting Latin Americans in it, despite 48% of the population in Los Angeles… being Latin American.

The series gained momentum for the portrayal and a kind of a reinvention of the Hulk and She-Hulk. They hit a road bump when a post-credit scene revealed Jennifer Walters twerking with Megan Thee Stallion while the director in a previous statement stated something else.

Los Angeles houses a population of 4.8 million Latin Americans in the city which is 48% of its total. With the show being set in the skyscrapers of LA, people would expect some diversity present in the series. Much to the people’s dismay, it was the opposite.
Fans took to Twitter to express cries of racism for not portraying the diversity present in the Californian city.

Jessica Gao poured her heart out into creating this female-centric series doe Marvel. The twerking and the now non-portrayal of Latin Americans set in the show have caused some controversies.
Sitting atop a rating score of 5.1/10 on IMDB and an audience score of 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, this series of the LA-based part attorney, part superhero is in potential perils of being just another failure of Marvel Studios.
The next episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will be airing on September 8th, 2022 to stream exclusively on Disney+. Let us hope the show doesn’t get itself involved in further controversies.
