An awful lot of people have signed a petition asking Netflix for a sequel of To All The Boys I've Loved Before

Yay or nay?

THE PEOPLE HAVE spoken.

Heart-warming teen movie To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before has successfully drummed up an awful lot of hype about it.

It makes sense then, that someone started a petition to get Netflix to greenlight a sequel for the movie.

The Care2 petition was started following the wild organic success of the film which premiered on Netflix on 17 August.

“The movie, about the funny and romantic fall out when Lara Jean's secret love letters to her crushes are mysteriously mailed out, is based on the bestselling young adult novel by Jenny Han,” writes Rebecca G. on her Care2 petition.

The book has TWO sequels for Netflix to pull from: P.S. I Still Love You and Always and Forever, Lara Jean, that continue the story of Lara Jean, her amazing family, and of course — of the dreamy Peter Kavinsky.”

Here's a picture of Peter, if you wish to verify said dreaminess.

The movie has received acclaim for its diversity in casting. However, TATBILB star Israel Broussard recently courted controversy, when offensive tweets from his past surfaced online.

Broussard has issued an apology for the tweets calling them “inappropriate and insensitive”.

The petition has called for Israel to be removed from any potential project going forward.

“This movie is a trailblazer in having an Asian American actress as the romantic lead and so it's particularly upsetting that Broussard has made racist jokes about Asian people, along with hateful comments on the Black Lives Matter movement,” reads the Care2 petition, "and even going as far to support horrific extremist conspiracy tweets calling the school-shooting at Sandy Hook a "hoax”.

If you fancy signing the petition yourself, you can find it here.
