    The TikTok post

    The TikTok post that surfaced on social media had the scene where Loid Forger who is Anya’s adoptive father picks her up after she passes the school admission test.

    One TikTok User proceeded to say:

    “I hate the way they sexualise the little girl in the show whenever she’s with her dad.”
