“The Idol” gets more cringe each week.
The highly criticized HBO show — which was co-created by The Weeknd, “Euphoria” director Sam Levinson and Reza Fahim — continued to face backlash online after its third episode was released Sunday night.
In the episode, titled “Daybreak,” lead Lily-Rose Depp’s character, Jocelyn, and The Weeknd, who plays creepy club owner Tedros, start having sex in a Valentino dressing room.
However, in the middle of their — rather loud — hookup, Depp walks out, leaving The Weeknd’s character to finish the deed himself.

The graphic scene caught many already skeptical viewers off-guard as they took to social media to voice their opinions on the shocking sex scene.
“Dressing room sex scene is supposed to be funny, I think, but it’s the cringiest scene so far,” one user tweeted. “Then Tredros loudly jacking off alone? WTF is this episode?”
“why am I watching the idol it’s so bad ughhhhh why are they f—king in the Valentino store,” a second asked.
“Has The Weeknd ever had sex? Has ANYONE on the set of The Idol had sex?” a third chimed in. “Wtf was that scene in the dressing room in episode 3, it looked like two muppets banging it out.”
