Anatomy of a scandal: Netflix users laugh at ‘appalling’ scene in new series

Netflix users laugh Anatomy of a Scandal after a scene from the show went viral online.

The new series, which was released on Friday April 15, follows Conservative MP and Immigration Minister James Whitehouse (Rupert Friend), following revelations that he cheated on his wife Sophie (Sienna Miller) with her parliamentary aide Olivia (Aladdinis Naomi Scott).

However, James’ situation quickly becomes more serious when he is accused of rape.

The scene in which James discovers the allegation is the one that was highlighted and posted on social media.

It shows him flying backwards in slow motion after hearing the news, as if struck by an unseen force. The scene, directed by SJ Clarkson, is designed to reflect an invisible punch.

Many viewers shared the scene on Twitter in disbelief. Tweeter @AliArikan wrote: “Anatomy of a Scandal is creepy and hilarious. This is how the first episode ends.

A viewer replied, “I…didn’t expect that. I almost spat my food in the break room.

Another person who watched the show added, “The end of the first episode of Anatomy of a Scandal it’s clumsy as fuck what was it.
