Cancel the Heathers reboot

Heathers is an amazing movie and a great musical. However, it would not make a good TV show. The premise of Heathers follows 5 main characters. Heather Chandler, Heather McNamara, Heather Duke, Jason Dean, and Veronica Sawyer. 
However, in the soon-to-be TV show Heathers, the popular white skinny mean girls are replaced with a hefty Heather Chandler, a lesbian Heather McNamara, and a MAN as Heather Duke. This doesn't follow the plot at all. The Heathers are supposed to be our antagonists who pick on hefty people and people who are different in general. This defies the original plot. They should just make a new series all together. The idea of Heather Duke being a man or genderfluid is terrible. It is sexist, because the term genderfluid implies gender is like a personality trait that you can switch on and off at will. They should just suck it up and realize the cast a man as Duke.

In short, the movie and the future TV show are totally different, sexist, and over-all bad. It needs to be cancelled, because then we'll have a whole group of people who only think Heathers is some cheesy show.
