For example, the show has been praised for its treatment of Captain Raymond Holt, a gay character in an interracial, same-sex marriage.[6] The show was also praised by how it handled Rosa Diaz (Beatriz) coming out as bisexual.[7] It has won two Creative Emmys and two Golden Globes, winning Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy for Andy Samberg.

Online, people replace the "environment" with other things people generally do not want to talk about.
