Shameless writers!

 Dear Shameless makers: 
I love your TV show! I don't follow many TV programs but I don't miss one episode of Shameless. I would like to however make a comment about the end of episode 3 where you have a brief scene of the character Steve in Brazil. I am a Brazilian woman and I am very proud of my beautiful country and it's beautiful and warm Brazilian people. I very much resent the fact that you showed Steve getting a blowjob by a Brazilian woman with Rio's backdrop. That is a stupid and demeaning way of depicting a country and it's values. It's very disappointing that your writers would chose to stereotype my country in such poor way. Brazil, the land of easy and slutty women. Really guys? By the way, your backdrop could not look more fake. That whole scene is just a disaster. Remember, you live in a GLOBAL community now. You should be more careful on how you portrait people's cultures and countries. They could be watching you!

  1. I agree. What is mostly upsetting is the fact that the writing of this show is quite clever, but then they come and do something idiotic like stereotyping Brazil that way! That is so old school. Nowadays people should know better not do make this kind of statement. My wife is Brazilian and she is appalled. SHAME on Showtime!

  3. Yes! Hello! Travel a little will ya damn d*ckhead writers!!? Brazil is an incredible country with incredibly amazing people. You are an idiot if your image of Brazil is just women and sex. And you should not be making money writing for TV.
