In this week’s episode of the Black Girl Nerds Podcast, we interview director Tommy Avallone of the I Love You, You Hate Me docuseries currently streaming on Peacock TV.
I Love You, You Hate Me unpacks how a children’s character who stood for inclusion, understanding, and kindness birthed a movement of anger and criticism that threatened the show, its creators, and their futures. As it spotlights the beginnings of modern-day hate culture, this documentary traces the creation of the character and how it took a toll on the people closest to it, examining the surprising and lingering impact the ‘Big Purple Dinosaur’ left on American society.
