I’m sorry to break it to you all, but Netflix has some seriously bad manners.
It’s come to light that in more than one Netflix original film, a character is seen straight up hopping on a bed without first removing their dirty shoes, which is SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE.
WHY THE FUCK DOES EVERY FUCKING NETFLIX MOVIE HAVE THESE FUCKERS GETTING INTO THEIR BEDS WITH SHOES ON!!!! I AM DISGUSTED!!!!!! NO SHOES IN THE BED!! NO OUTSIDE CLOTHES IN THE BED!!!

Socks in bed? Fine. Slippers? MAYBE under rare circumstances like if it’s freezing, a cozy snow day, or if you’re very sick and feel as though your head might explode if you bend down to remove your slippers.
But under no circumstances should you ever let shoes — foot covers that traipse through grass, dirt, water, and all sorts of other outside world horrors — touch the clean and sacred sleeping space that is a bed. It’s common sense,
Off the top of my head, there are two known instances I can think of in which Netflix violates this often unspoken but widely known rule. For all we know there could be more, but for now, let’s revisit two cringeworthy scenes from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and Sierra Burgess Is A Loser.
Exhibit A: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Spotted: In the film adaptation of Jenny Han’s book To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, the supposedly older and wiser sister, Margot, climbs into LARA JEAN’S BED (not even her own bed — the nerve) while wearing both of her shoes.
She just broke up with her boyfriend Josh, so we get that she’s upset, but that’s no reason to disrespect clean sheets. After coming in from a conversation with Josh OUTSIDE, she proceeds to commit the ultimate shoe/bed sin by hopping on the bed and casually pulling the damn covers over her shoes.
In the words of Peter Kavinsky’s mom: “Heathen!”
Exhibit B: Sierra Burgess Is A Loser
Spotted: Post keg-stand, Sierra Burgess is also seen collapsing on her bed WITH BOTH SHOES ON. We get that she’s tired, but to add insult to injury, her shoes have LACES! That can’t be the least bit comfortable or enjoyable for Sierra, Netflix! Just let her take her shoes off.
As you can probably imagine, observant Netflix viewers picked up on the character’s thoughtless actions and were rightfully appalled.
I need Netflix to get its shit together because two movies they have made have had women getting into bed with shoes on and that is a MONSTROSITY

So I FINALLY wanted “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” and I think the most memorable scene was when the older sister laid in the bed, with the covers over her WITH HER SHOES ON!!!! 😷

So Netflix, where the heck are your manners? If it had been one original movie we might have let it slide. But two? Who keeps giving you the green light to keep making this absurd shoe-on-the-bed content?
Not to mention, at one point in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before book, Peter walks into Lara Jean’s house, takes off his sneakers, and asks, “You guys are a no-shoes house, right?” Lara Jean replies, “yes,” which means someone made the conscious decision to ignore that lovely detail of the book and instead have Margot wreak havoc on a bed.
Please, in the future, just try to have a little more respect for clean beds everywhere.
