Ms. Antos must have forgotten that the internet never forgets…

We have… questions.
- How can she judge a film she hasn’t seen? It just won Best Film at the Venice International Film Festival 2 days ago, was she there?
- Why do types like her think the Joker movie will make a million white terrorists, but say a holy book such as the Q’uran would have nothing whatsoever to do with Islamic terrorism?
- Is showing that bad guys have emotions going to destroy her black and white world view and make it more difficult for her to demonize white males?
- Doesn’t this mean the new Harley Quinn movie is also “problematic”?
- Did anyone ever actually ask what Rachel Miller wanted? Who cares?
That’s it for now. YouTube personality Just Some Guy broke this down perfectly already, but I really wanted to try to get my questions answered.
Meanwhile, I have some advice for Ms. Antos, Rachel Miller, and anyone else triggered at the mere idea of a character study of possibly the greatest villain in DC Comics history – neither of whom have seen the film yet since it won’t be released wide until October 3.
Don’t go see it.
