Fifteen Times "Insecure" Called Bullshit On Society

You think comedy can't address actual issues? Don't judge a book by its cover.

Posted on

The second season of Insecure is officially over and ready to be binge-watched. And if you missed the first season, grab yourself a couple jugs of Carlo Rossi and sit back.

Although classified as a comedy, Insecure's characters constantly conquor very real and very serious circumstances. Season 2 was no exception to this rule.

Whether it's the introduction of polyamory, inter-minority racism or gentrification, writers have mastered the art of using comedy to spark conversation. The show's use of irony, euphemism, and tongue-in-cheek humor will leave you wondering if you should cringe or laugh.

Here are 15 samples of some real AF issues from the second season.
