The weird thing is the choking thing wasn’t that big a deal. It’s why you have people on set watching for the safety of the actors, and the director didn’t stop it. Yeah, it’s a shitty thing to do and have done to you, but that’s part of acting. Sometimes you go too far to make a scene real. It’s not like it was a “oh holy shit bojack, you’ll never come back from this” moment.
Bojacks big problem is that he never gets validation, but part of that is because he’s so alienated he doesn’t give a shit what anyone thinks except for Diane, who isn’t in a position to validate anyone because her schtick is that she’s unsatisfied with literally everything in her life.
