There is a petition against the show on change.org

Gossip Girl: Stop glamorizing an abusive relationship. Chuck and Blair's.



The Petition Letter
[is under here]



Greetings,

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Gossip Girl and The CW.

Stop glamorizing an abusive relationship. Chuck and Blair's.

Abusive relationships, whether physical or emotional, should not be tolerated by anyone, let alone be shown in a TV show like it's all right, especially when said TV show is directed towards so many young women/teenagers. IT IS NOT OKAY.

Young teenage girls are very impressionable.

We saw Chuck not only assault and objectify her, but also use physical intimidation to frighten her, and prior to that scene, humiliate and publicly degrade her in front of a woman she was trying to impress by discussing their sexual history!

In our book, and according to most definitions, that's an abuser!

Please use your show as a positive influence to all the people out there. This is not even about a shipping war. At all. I’m just worried about the people who are watching Gossip Girl but doesn't see the unhealthy aspects of it. I just want the writers to acknowledge certain aspect of Chuck and Blair's relationship. Thanks!


Sincerely,
Concern Viewers
[Your name]
