    People Shared Their Most Controversial "Degrassi" Opinions And I Am Living For The Tea

    Paige and Alex deserved better!

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us their unpopular or controversial Degrassi opinions. Here are the wild results!

    IMPORTANT NOTE: I, Kelly Martinez, do not necessarily endorse all of these opinions. I personally love J.T. and Liberty together!

    🚨 Warning: Next Class spoilers ahead! 🚨

    1. Emma and Spinner ending up together actually made sense.

    TeenNick

    "I don't understand the Emma and Spinner backlash. I liked that their relationship was weird and unexpected, because that's just how life goes."

    quantumzayn

    2. Craig and Manny were a terrible couple.

    TeenNick

    "They had no chemistry whatsoever and always brought out the worst in each other."

    3. Lola was the best person for Miles.

    Netflix

    "Lola and Miles had more chemistry in their two-minute scenes than Miles and Tristan had in four seasons."

    4. Liberty didn't deserve J.T.

    TeenNick

    "She blamed him for the pregnancy even though that was just as much her mistake as his. She put a ton of pressure on him to support their family and then left him when he was at his lowest point."

    5. Manny and Sean should have dated.

    TeenNick

    "I always wanted them to get together. They would have made the perfect couple."

    6. Tristan was the worst character on the show.

    Netflix

    "He never had to grow, change his ways, learn anything, or become a decent friend in his five years on the show."

    rakath

    "He was biphobic, rude, and never took any responsibility. He was only tolerable after the bus crash."

    racheldiz

    7. Paige and Alex should have been endgame.

    TeenNick

    "I hated how Paige acted like their relationship never even happened."

    quantumzayn

    8. Bruce the Moose was one of the most underrated characters.

    TeenNick

    9. Maya and Miles were a better couple than Maya and Zig.

    TeenNick

    10. Emma was a terrible friend to Manny.

    TeenNick

    "I never liked Emma and Manny as friends. Emma was always so judgmental of Manny, and I thought Manny was way too nice to Emma."

    11. Terri and Spinner should have dated.

    TeenNick

    qazsis

    12. Adam's death was poorly written.

    TeenNick

    "Adam deserved a better ending. Period. He was the only trans character on TV at the time, and we barely got any storylines about him."

    aalayah

    13. Spinner should have never come back to Degrassi after the shooting.

    TeenNick

    "He basically got his 'best friend' shot. He should not have been allowed to come back to school after that."

    visionaryelf66

    14. Sav and Ms. Oh's relationship wasn't okay, and never should have happened.

    TeenNick

    "The storyline was gross and unnecessary. I'm surprised it didn't get more backlash."

    qazsis

    15. Miles and Tristan were NOT a good couple.

    Netflix

    "Miles deserved so much better than Tristan. The only reason that ship gets so much love is because people love to fetishize them."

    6zippy

    16. Craig and Ellie should have ended up together.

    TeenNick

    17. Spinner should have gotten stabbed instead of J.T.

    TeenNick

    18. Jack and Imogen weren't a good couple, and Imogen was better off with Fiona.

    TeenNick

    "Imogen deserved better. It was totally fine that Jack wanted to have a open relationship, but she shouldn’t have forced Imogen into it when she wasn't comfortable with the idea."

    aalayah

    "Imogen should have ended up with Fiona."

    pinkchipmunk78

    19. Emma and Jay had amazing chemistry.

    TeenNick

    "Jay helped Emma loosen up and Emma made Jay more sensitive and empathetic. They also looked amazing together."

    fiercesorcerer57

    20. Drew should have been the father of Clare's baby, not Eli.

    TeenNick

    "Drew was actually there for Clare. Eli was still too bitter that Clare slept with another dude after he CHEATED on her. I understand that the writers wanted Eli and Clare to be endgame, but they still could have had the baby be Drew’s."

    21. And finally, Degrassi really should have been shut down after everything that happened at that school.
