In the reality series Siesta Key, a group of young people are thrown together in a Florida beach community, and then producers sit back and watch (and perhaps create) drama as the cast parties, hooks up, and otherwise frolicks. The series follows a familiar formula and is one of many similar shows that has been aired on MTV, specifically Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. The series debuted in 2017, and its third season began airing in early 2020. It was the subject of controversy from the beginning, thanks mainly to the behavior of one of its cast members, Alex Kompothecras. Kompothecras' wealthy chiropractor father is an executive producer of the series. Friends of Kompothecras had been the subject of a viral video in which they tortured a shark by dragging it behind a boat. Kompothecras himself was caught on video apparently shooting a shark. MTV finally had enough of Kompothecras' behavior as the thrid season of the series aired. Earlier Instagram posts in which Kompothecras used racist language and engaged with racist content resurfaced. As the controversy became public, MTV announced that Kompothecras would no longer be employed by the series and that season 3 would be re-edited to minimize his presence. A central storyline of the season was intended to involve Kompothecras' infidelity in his relationship with his girlfriend. His girlfriend will continue to be featured in the series. Kompothecras' father announced that he would be looking into taking legal action against MTV. It is unclear whether the elder Kompothecras will continue to produce the series.
