Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Awful disgusting show!! It’s like drinking Kale with Coconut water!!!

I think the past few seasons have been just 1 star! Due to the torrential downpour of profanity and absurd content around the characters they ought to recast and mix it with more females like Ajax. Hey

White Priviledge

I thought it was a great show because as an African american female, I struggled as a server and I could relate as to the inter mingling with our co workers, the drinking, staying up to 5am sometimes because shifts don't start until 5pm the next day - we see each other all the time- but as the years go on with this show I see the show changing. None of these servers are struggling, they go on these lavish trips every year sometimes multiple times a year- hundreds of thousand dollars on parties, weddings, etc.. I see a crew of white privileged kids who pretend to struggle through life and they are not- they use the platform they are in now to elevate themselves and their work from home businesses but I don't see one black face the show helps. And that one black face they had for like a brief pause was more than likely kicked off because their star, Jax made a pass at her that got his fugly girlfriend upset. Nothing happened to the white guy. Its all about who you know, who they except, and who makes the money- and its not ethnicity -its white spoiled privileged kids- it has become surprisingly ...disappointing. But they should stop acting like they need money- looks like there is plenty to go around if you are the right fit.
