This Week’s Euphoria Had an Animated Harry Styles Gay Sex Scene

This Week’s ‘Euphoria’ Had an Animated Harry Styles Gay Sex Scene

HBO’s new show Euphoria has been polarizing since it debuted last month thanks to its depictions of teen sexuality, drug use, and toxic masculinity, but this Sunday’s episode featured a scene that is water cooler television at its finest — an animated gay sex scene featuring members of One Direction. Can you believe?

Each episode of Euphoria centers on one main character, and Sunday’s episode highlighted Kat (Barbie Ferreira), who has grappled with her sexuality (and the way teen boys interact with it) in Euphoria’s opening episodes. In the most recent installment, the audience learns that Kat gained internet notoriety as a fanfiction writer, specifically a Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson shipper who helped popularize the “Larry Stylinson conspiracy theory, that Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction are secretly fucking,” as Rue (Zendaya) narrates.

But the gags didn’t end there. The show then featured Kat narrating one of her sexy stories, with an animated sex scene of Styles and Tomlinson getting it on backstage at a concert, with a full on anime 69 session.

But One Direction fans, many of whom shipped Harry/Louis in the past, are calling for the scene to be removed from the episode. “Who allowed Euphoria to use Harry & Louis’ names,” one fan questioned on Twitter. “Are lou & harry aware that this happened? Like they must be-it’s hbo so they probably had to like have some form of permission from lou & harry’s management or them themselves but why would anyone allow that?”

“Just saw the euphoria scene of harry & louis & i’m so disgusted,” wrote another. “louis clearly said that the ship ruined their friendship & some prick decided to air that on tv with their real names for everyone to see... if we’re this uncomfortable i can’t imagine how they’re feeling.”

Euphoria airs Sundays on HBO.
