Friday the 13th controversy
If I remember that’s straight out of the book i think (secondhand experience of book, never read it), though at least they didn’t put in the underage sex scene
@Nosferatu Zodd, yeah the first murder that starts off the adult cycle in the book is that of a gay man, nevermind the scenes of racists burning down a black club with partygoers inside, the predatory father of one of the characters, and the child with his arm getting torn off
@Nosferatu Zodd, whaaat?? You didn’t want to watch a weird child sewer orgy? Heavens to Betsy I can’t think of why you wouldn’t.
@Fuggles, i personally just dont enjoy beating off in the theaters so i was very relieved they didnt include it
@jouze, the reason it was included was because a gay couple was f@g-dragged back in the town King grew up (also the basis of the town in IT). King was sickened by the townspeople's apathy and purposefully added it in to say "yes it happened". And when the residents of his hometown said "no it wasn't like that", he further emphasized "yes it fűcking was".
The people complaining about scene dont understand why it was there to begin with! But should be expected of the same dumbasses who thought IT and the Babadook were gay icons?
Want inclusiveness in Hollywood? Don't cherry pick.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, honestly I think the lgbtq community is getting overly-butthurt about the whole thing. (I say as a member of said community) 1: so many of us die in our own movies anyway, and 2: it's a horror movie and the clown monster has always been just that - a monster.
Basically: it's not like the movie is advocating for gay bashings. It's a freakin' horror movie. People die.
That's. The point.
(I just want to reply to all the complaints about this movie with that one syndrome image)
-We want to be treated equally.
-We want you to put us on a pedestal in movies/tv/etc. because we can do no wrong.
@ORGANIC, one battle at a time man. we are still trying to give women what they want. now we have heards more of shïtheads with opinions
Pennywise doesn’t discriminate when it comes to horrific murder
@megamanx181x, but the humans did.
@mas2de, who’s the real monster???
@megamanx181x, well, if you ask AvE's daughter Chikadee, People are monsters.
I mean be happy gays are being included in horror flicks.
Chapel is right, you can't please alphabet people.
@Shodai Hokage, "they hate me so much, but I just can't stop making jokes about them"
But the start of it 2 features a homophobic based attack before any supernatural stuff happened. Myers isn't attacking people BECAUSE they're straight.
Still enjoyed the movie. But I can understand why people who've been discriminated against in the past would find it upsetting even if finally correct
Get the fjck over it, the Gay Agenda is over, Transgenderism is all the rage!
Don’t know that he was saying do not go see it, just telling people be aware, especially if you are sensitive to that like you or someone close was attacked just for being gay. It’s not the murder that is the issue, it’s the hate crime beating before he is trying to warn about.
@thejamesshow00, he’s warning about a graphically violent movie for being graphically violent towards a specific demographic, when the movie’s antagonist is pretty liberal towards the diversity of the victims.
This seems to come from a mentality of pure self absorption.
Gay people being killed as part of the masses is one thing, gay people being targeted for their sexuality is another thing
Literally how the book starts.
As a gay man myself. Each group, heteros, trans etc have all their special people that we want to punch ourselves.
Missed with that one, bro. Myers doesn’t kill based off sexual orientation. Jason on the hand...
No one can have sex while HE’S around.
People complain because they put that scene in there, people would have complained had they not included gay people. You can’t make anyone happy nowadays. People just look for something to be mad about for attention.
Fücking spoilers maaaang
hm. i think it’s more than this tho (at least in this case) because stephen king isn’t averse to putting subtle homophobia in his books, especially his older ones. just look at gerald’s game
Does he not know what the G is in LGBTQ is?
I didn't realise what he was talking about at first because he was typing in all capitals.
In the novel the murder is addressed. In the movie it just happens. The scene is irrelevant and doesn't fit with the story being told in the movie. I won't be paying $12 to see this because of this scene. I'll wait for digital release.
hate crime happens in a movie and might disturb some people that have experienced violence
straights™️: “I hate the gays.”
Everyone wants to be the victim
