Shut Up, Shut Up, Shut Up

Can the people over on the latest io9 Ghostbusters reboot post please stop being assholes? Please? There is such an undercurrent of “this movie is going to suck because it’s starring women who aren’t pretty and who suck.” And it’s all being dressed up as outrage over a beloved childhood memory being soiled. And it’s pissing me off. There’s a commenter whose opinion on the costumes is “I don’t want to see any of those actresses in those suits” which is just... ugh. Who cares whether their appearance in the costumes gives you a tingle in your happy place? Can we all just agree that we know basically NOTHING about this movie beyond casting and some VERY vague plot? And that’s really not anywhere near to enough to form any kind of opinion, especially when your hatred of Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy seems to mostly stem from, “they’re ugly and not funny” and tbh seems to be more distaste at the fact that these are women whose comedy isn’t particularly “ladylike.” (Seriously, they’re over there talking about how when Chris Farley does it, it’s funny, but when Melissa McCarthy does it, it’s gross.) Grow up.
