Didn't Tomoko just kept getting out and talking to people?
I have severe social anxiety and I can't even hold down a job, but that's how you get over it. Why would that be controversial?

Political correctness is all about ensuring that certain groups are completely off limits from honest analysis and criticism, being replaced instead by an echo chamber that only deals in the point of view that they're oppressed by others.

Female social outcasts are one of the groups protected by political correctness.

Otaku didn't like Tomoko because it reminded them too much of themselves.

IIRC there was some outrage that it was a comedy, which ignored the fact that tomoko was a very well-developed character anyway and throws away the long, long history of finding humor in unpalatable topics like mental illness.

Because it paints it so that the MC actually tries to do something about her disability no matter how clumsy instead of wallowing in her self pity.

I have social anxiety and I have friends.
How Tomoko got her friends is almost exactly how I got my middle/highschool friends.

I'd say the way Social Anxiety is portrayed is pretty damn accurate, if not a little exaggerated.
