    People Are Getting Pretty Heated About The "Beloved" TV Characters They Actually Hate, And The Takes Are Spicyyy

    "She had the opposite of a redemption arc and actually got worse as the show went on."

    Listen, I'm not here to try and cancel any TV characters. I'm all for letting people enjoy things, and of course, I realize that TV show characters are A) fictional, and B) written to be flawed and human. BUT, I also love a heated debate and some online discourse.

    So, when I stumbled upon the Reddit thread started by u/Randomthings1106 that asked people to share which beloved characters they actually find annoying, my interest was piqued. Let me just say that I do NOT agree with all of these takes. Some I can totally see, but others hurt my feelings just a little bit. Anyway, let's see what you think. Here are 17 popular TV characters that people are actually pretty sick of:

    1. Eddie Munson, Stranger Things
