HBO’s “The Idol” Sex Scene Sparks Backlash Among Viewers

The Weeknd’s HBO show, “The Idol,” has faced criticism over an X-rated sex scene featuring the singer telling a woman to “f–kin’ stretch that tiny little p—y.” Some fans have claimed to have “lost respect” for the singer. Despite the backlash, co-star Lily-Rose Depp has maintained a positive attitude, describing The Weeknd’s performance as “melting into this role in a way that is really difficult for anybody to do,” while laughing off the controversy.

Viewers were horrified by an X-rated sex scene that aired during HBO’s “The Idol,” featuring The Weeknd telling a woman to “f–kin’ stretch that tiny little p—y.”

HBO’s “The Idol” has sparked controversy yet again, this time for a graphic sex scene that has left viewers horrified. The footage shows The Weeknd, also known as Abel Tesfaye, telling a woman to “f–kin’ stretch that tiny little p—y” while she fingers her mouth. The show, which has already been criticized for presenting a ‘rape fantasy,’ faced even more backlash as soon as the scene aired.

Social media was full of scathing comments about the singer’s involvement in the show, with many stating that they had lost respect for him: “I really need Abel to get dragged for this nasty scene in The Idol,” said one commenter. Similarly, another felt that “doing it on TV especially GRAPHICALLY is weird.” Others simply critiqued the graphic nature of the scene: “I didn’t expect Abel to be so X rated,” said one.

Although the show has had a rocky ride so far, one actress has emerged with praise for her performance: Lily-Rose Depp. The series, which is the creation of “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson, has been described as “comically bad” by critics, but Depp has been lauded for her “frighteningly good” performance despite the controversial content.

Depp herself has also embraced the attention and even laughed off “Saturday Night Live” star Chloe Fineman’s parody of her character. In an Instagram comment, she said, “I’m loling 🤣🤣🤣🤣 ….. and ur makeup looks bomb.” Despite the backlash, it seems that some actors are taking the controversy in their stride.
