Fresh off their wildly successful boycotts of Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the fellas at Roosh V’s internet garbage site Return of Kings have now set their sights on the lady-fied Ghostbusters.
Oh, wait, I’m being told that their previous boycotts were not so much “wildly successful” as “hilariously ineffectual,” and that The Force Awakens took less than two months to generate more than $2 billion in worldwide ticket sales. That’s BILLION, with a “b” and an “illion.”
Well, let’s just set that aside for now, because Return of Kings contributor David Garrett Brown has new marching orders for Roosh’s cuture warriors:
We urge readers and others to boycott this film at all costs. Do not add to Sony Pictures’ feminist-loving coffers or help pay for Melissa McCarthy’s next cheeseburger.
Sorry, drifted off for a moment there thinking about cheeseburgers.
Anyway, this isn’t the first time RoK has attacked the as-yet-unreleased all-lady Ghostbusters. In a post last year, RoK’s JD Unwin attacked the ghost-based comedy on the grounds that Ghostbusting has traditionally been an all-male profession, or something:
Like the proverbial kid sister who would fume at the fact that her brother and his friends would lock her out of the male only clubhouse, the feminists and their mangina accomplices in the media once again demonstrate their need to forcibly intrude upon any perceived male bastions.
Oh, he was also deeply offended that Melissa McCarthy, one of the new Ghostbusters, is fat, so having her “run around the city with a 35-lb proton pack strapped to her girth defies the laws of physics.”
This is pretty much what Brown thinks as well. How dare a film depict women as scientists, when everyone knows that in the real world women are incapable of STEM logic.
No one has adequately explained why, in a world where everything from Microsoft to Snapchat is male-generated, the new globe-saving paranormal clean-up team is all female. Just because is what we have been told. Is it not enough, for example, that women, without superior qualifications, are prefered 2-1 for STEM faculty positions? Evidently not.
Meanwhile, Melissa McCarthy is still fat.
In multiple areas, including gender, race and the celebration of obesity, Ghostbusters 3 is a symbol of more or less everything that is wrong with both society and the filmmaking industry seeking to protect it. For your own self-respect, we vociferously recommend you keep further away from this film than Melissa McCarthy does from diets and good exercise.
Weirdly, I don’t recall any Red Pillers ever criticizing, I dunno, John Candy or John Belushi or Kevin James for “celebrating obesity” by existing while fat.
Brown also tries to piggyback on the fairly widespread criticism of the film’s rather troubling racial politics — casting white actresses as scientists while making Leslie Jones’ character a street-smart stereotype.
That’s a pretty, er, ironic criticism to find on Return of Kings, a site run by an unashamed racist who was openly flirting with the white supremacist “alt-right” up until he realized, fairly recently, that the white supremacists he was trying to win over actually see him as a “greasy” Middle Easterner and suspected “muzzie” (Muslim).
Apparently untroubled by this massive hypocrisy, Brown charges that
Leslie Jones’ Ghostbusters 3 character is exactly the sort of readily angered black woman liberals want. Beat-ups like in Ferguson, Missouri depend on this drastically dumbed-down caricature of African-Americans.
Brown is also angry — and I’m not kidding here — that the four lady Ghostbusters visited some sick kids in a hospital last year. How dare they!
Naturally, the Return of Kings commenters are as excited as Brown is by the prospect of not going to see the film, and celebrated by posting, well, the horrific bigoted crap they always post.
Women are all a bunch of welfare cheats/affirmative action hires eating bon bons!
“They” all just want free stuff!
Ha ha women can’t science!
The ladies look like dudes!
This one is my favorite one:
I really hope that Sony’s publicists use some of that for the movie posters.
