Do we really need a 'Gossip Girl' reboot?
When news broke "Gossip Girl" could be coming back to the small screen, some fans quickly got excited.
But not everyone is jumping on the "Gossip Girl" reboot bandwagon. Some argue a show about Manhattan's elite is outdated and unnecessary. According to Teen Vogue:
It’s already been argued before that Gossip Girl has had its fair share of problematic plot points. For starters, the series seriously lacked in terms of diversity. The first season featured no person of color in the leading cast, and not one plus-size character was ever featured. It also included a sexual assault storyline in which Chuck Bass preyed on young girls and got away with it — largely because he was a rich white man — only to have the show make him out to be a good guy and someone we should root for by the end of the series.
