Dan Aykroyd throws down on the worst Ghostbusters haters

07.21.2016

ghostbusters, ray stantz, dan aykroyd

Like the new GHOSTBUSTERS movie or don't... It doesn't matter to me at this point. However, what we should all be able to agree on is that the behavior of far too many surrounding this movie has been completely unacceptable. It is beyond any realm of reasonable response for something you might not want to see. After all, no one is flipping their shit like this, because a remake of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN is rolling around. And, as a result, we have seen misogynistic attacks against the women involved in Paul Feig's film (yeah, I know... it's about the fact that they touched GHOSTBUSTERS in the first place for you... fine... but that doesn't mean there aren't others who are driven by this other personal issue) and, as of late, racist attacks against the likes of Leslie Jones to the point that she has now withdrawn from Twitter after being hit with so much vile hatred. 


Enough is enough. Silence in the face of this sort of behavior is equal to condoning it, and we should speak out against those who insist on fighting a fight that no one else is fighting with these types of tactics. Dan Aykroyd is going to take the lead. 

In a new interview with ET Canada, one of the co-creators of GHOSTBUSTERS and one of its original members as Ray Stantz is taking off the gloves and hitting hard. First, in defense of Jones:

"Well first of all she’s a great writer, great comedian and comes from a real urban background where she had a lot of hardship and she’s channelling that into a great achievement and a great career."

And then on offense against those now referred to as the GhostBros:

“These people, first of all, they’re insignificant gnats. They’re losers, they have no lives of their own, they can probably barely pay for the wifi they’re using. I would say you’re looking at obese white men between 50 and 60 who are active Klan members, or members of the Aryan Nation, and there are millions of them." 

Ray Stantz doesn't want you around anymore. Ray Stantz wants you as far away from the Ghostbusters as humanly possible. One of the original Ghostbusters has had enough of your shit in trying to invoke the Ghostbusters for some ridiculous cause. That should hurt. 

And really what it comes down to is people taking something way too seriously that was always meant to be fun and entertaining. Basically, if you feel the need to call upon racist or sexist language in order to combat a movie that doesn't do it for you, then you are every bit what Dan Aykroyd says you are. How's it feel wearing that badge?

Enough

Enough. Dan, you have just spit on some of the people that made you a success, even though you have never been terribly funny. This movie bombed because of the absolute disdain and contempt the creators of Ghostbusters feel towards their target fans. I've never seen anything like it. You can just feel the contempt in Akroyd's words. He hates the fans that did not want this reboot made. And with those words, this franchise is officially dead. And deservedly so.

Maaannn... Fffuck Dan Akroyd!

It's his fault this mess got made to begin with. He's the one who's truly to blame. He wants to sit on his high horse but greed is what really got this movie made. And Leslie Jones can cry me a fuckin' river! I don't care that they're women. I don't care that Leslie is black. What people don't understand is that the hate has nothing to do with that. I would go out on a limb and say 98% of the hate is because this abomination even got made and not because they're women but because they're

I would say only one is talented. Guess who? And the only thing about Leslie Jones that's funny is her fuckin face.

I'M LAUGHING MY ASS OFF!

I'm laughing my ass off with this article! Billy Donnelly, and Dan Aykroyd, you've fallen for the 'poor me' antics of what I accurately call SELECTIVE MORAL OUTRAGE. Just two days ago, an article was posted concerning Leslie's racist comments about whites and jews. Here is the title: DOUBLE STANDARDS: Leslie Jones' Racist Twitter History. What's the old saying? If you can't take the heat..... Leslie Jones is a victim of her own shortsightedness. She can fill twitter with her racist swill, but

If you can't take the heat..... Leslie Jones is a victim of her own shortsightedness. She can fill twitter with her racist swill, but when it comes back to bite her in the ass, she's all in tears and has to quit Twitter. POOR BABY!!!! I don't know what's worse, Leslie Jones' hypocrisy, or the fact that she recruited the author of this article and Dan Ackroyd to defend her. Food for thought: It's like me calling her the "N" word and having her defend me. Hilarious! I think the real topic of the article should be about how racism, in any form, is unacceptable!

I agree 100%. Racisim is racism. I even posted the link to Jones own racist twitter history as a reply to most of the comments here so that EVERYONE had the opportunity to see Jones own racist generalizations of white and Jewish people, along with a message that it does NOT justify what she is going through...only points out the fact that she is in fact a hypocrite. I was advised by the site that its a no-no to do so....even though I was asked (or challenged to) by Darth Jeff (please scroll

Poor Leslie Jones...

Racism is ugly and completely unacceptable... But Leslie Jones has made a habit of spewing racist remarks on Twitter. She created the dialogue and space for this type of behavior. There is a total double standard at play here. I don't condone this type of behavior... But I don't feel sorry for her. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a staged publicity stunt by Sony.

Double Standard

She should act like a professional. If you're going to go on twitter and spout off stuff about white people and make racial observations, then you're inviting the conversation to be had both ways. I'm not condoning racism, but there seems to be a clear double standard that we're not aloud to talk about. I initially felt sorry for her, but the more I think about it; I don't any more. These are the times we live in and if she can't handle Twitter heat after staring in a controversially casted

And Dan Ackroyd shouldn't be talking about 50 year old, fat losers. He lives in that glass house. (respectfully)

First Off

Who really cares? Secondly, get the fuck over it. Seriously, just deal with it. There's going to be legitimate bigots out there and more people get it worse than you. Grow thicker skin. Lastly, how do you guys not know if this is more of a sony ploy? It isn't beneath them to stage something like this. Do yourselves a favor and watch Midnight's Edge's "Ghostbusters: The Controversies Behind the Movie" on YouTube. It'll open your eyes about sony, feig, the cast, and that cunt that used to work at

@Mik. I saw your previous post (which is a GREAT find), and while I agree it doesn't justify certain people's behavior, it's essentially a case of karma. Her "crying" rants won't mean anything when people find the article you posted. Which makes me believe further that this is all a case of shitty, lowbrow marketing.

Nogoodnames....thats exactly the point I tried to make earlier in a previous post. Shes a hypocrite. Open ghost trap....insert foot. I was just saying that it doesnt justify more racism and hate. And the hate shes getting now doesnt justify the racism and hate she was spewing herself. It all sucks. Karma.

Funny thing is this was a white comedian who had all those twitter tweets...

Career over, never work in hollywood... but this chick gets movie rolls and is crying wolf on twitter like we're supposed to feel bad for her. I wonder if Aykroyd has seen her twitter history before any of this.

I wish the author of the article (Billy) woulda posted this link along with this article.

I don't think anybody involved in this has a cause beyond getting a reaction.

When James Rolfe had the nerve to say he wasn't interested in Ghostbusters, a bunch of lunatics ran to twitter and their blogs and even the New York Goddamn Times to call him a sexist pig and a manbaby and even insult his wife. He just ignored it, and it made him look like a million bucks.

Just throw up your middle finger and keep walkin'. And the original Magnificent Seven was already a remake - it'd be pretty

[link] Here is a link to Jones own racist rule breaking twitter history. I was asked by another joblo user to post this. In her own tweets Jones breaks many of the rules of twitter....racist tweets, cussing and ordering her followers to attack another user. None of this makes it ok for people to attack Jones and the racism is disgusting. But maybe we ALL need to change.

I'm the one who asked you to show posts of hateful equivalence from Jones and you did not, in my opinion. That's like saying a motherfucker was throwing pebbles at your window so you came outside and blew his fucking head off with a shotgun. But I'll meet you halfway since at least you admit that attacking her was wrong and everybody should be more sensitive.

I understand what you're trying to say with the pebble analogy but that doesnt change the facts or unstate truths, or even change what I said. There is in fact precedence against your pebble analogy though. Throwing a pebble at a window is against the law....and so is murder. We have a court system set up to specifically judge that kind of thing because there is tangible evidence there. The actual degree of crime is measurable. However, that being said, I understand where you were going with the pebble analogy but it fails in this scenario. Youre saying if Leslie Jones is throwing pebbles st my window...all Im allowed to do is throw pebbles at her window and I cant even throw them harder than Jones is throwing her pebbles. Ha.. I cant do anything else to her until she decided to escalate the conflict by throwing bigger stones or going to get a gun. Only then would I be allowed to retaliate, but only with an EQUAL amount of aggression and violence that Jones is using against me. Again....this is absolutely rediculous. For the 3rd time now, you have reinforced the idea that Jones gets to do what ever she wants....she gets to draw the racist line in the sand....and people are only allowed to resond with an "equal" amount of hate and racism as shes spewing at them. Just....wow. Good day to you.

Damn

Just edited my comment because I just googled Leslie Jones white people tweets, and the shit that she has said about white people, and now has the fucking audacity to complain about racist shit thrown her way???

GTFO. I'm not here to condone idiots on Twitter, but Leslie Jones can calm down and look at herself. Dan is right about the malicious people who are insignificant gnats and losers, but to say they are white people and white supremists? That is a stupid racist generalized statement

Whether you wanted this Ghostbusters or not, the tweets these people have sent to are disgusting. They are the lowest of low blows. Although she got this attention because of the movie, this has nothing to do with it. These people are directly attacking a persons appearance based on her size and skin color, comparing her to the gorilla from the Cincinnati zoo.

i think the toxicity arose from years and years of trying to get ghostbusters 3 to take off. years and years of trying to get bill murray back in the role of peter venkman. years and years of bickering back and forth. it's that bill itch they keep trying to scratch and scratch. if they just went ahead and did a sequel without bill but with the old crew intact none of this would've happened. now we're in the internet age where anything you say and do can become global in an instant and the stink

If a studio did a contrived SJW remake of The Magnificent Seven as an all women posse I'm pretty confident it would get angry responses as would a remake of Gem and the Holograms as James and the Holograms or a remake of Anne of Green Gables called Adrian of Green Gables. The argument goes both ways and all directions. It's ultimately about creative and canon integrity.

I agree 99% with you, Billy.

However, is there any need to be so verbally violent when you post something about this movie? It is like you are on the other extreme, with your own personal (and aggressive) agenda too.
I want to repeat though, I agree with you in the matter, not the way.
By the way, I saw Ghostbusters and I think it was ok.

I wouldn't name-call namecallers. It kind of makes you sink down to their level.
I also think people attacking her personally is disgusting. They are the reason I hope karma slaps do-badders in the ass.

I don't even know what the hell's up with people these days - I know there's always been racist and sexist assholes but just lately it kinda seems like the world's going to shit. These negative, hateful viewpoints will only ever be a tiny minority with various degrees of organisation, but it just seems to have exploded lately. I know tough times are like redbull to those who hold extreme right-wing views, but seriously I'm just so sick of that mindset.
That type of hatred will only ever make

That type of hatred will only ever make the world a worse place. If you don't like a movie, by all means criticise and vent your spleen - it's your right when you smell reheated bullshit - but these targeted attacks that have no bearing on the actual film's content are just pathetic. I'm sure for many involved the film is just an excuse to spread hatred - much like looters who hijack a meaningful protest.

Since I used to travel in that circle I can tell you exactly who dd this and it wasn't obese clan members. It was 8chan. They did it for the lulz. In my opinion that makes it even worse. A simple and lazy search will show you this. In their words, they realised because she tended to answer back they'd make her a 'lolcow', i.e. one you milk for lulz. 85% of all harassment done on social media is nothing more than trolling and shitposting. Don't take that as an apology for their behavior,

Internet trolls are literally the worst. Especially ones that hide behind a Twitter handle and sling horrible words at actors. Don't throw the actors under the bus, its the Executives at Sony that you should be writing and giving them a piece of your mind.

Also, if you go to Leslie Jones Twitter account, its just tweet after tweet of her going off on people. She's a comedian, didn't she know that when you're coming up through the ranks, do not read what trolls are saying about you online.

Beating of the horse

Last desperate attempt for a marketing push? Mark my words, this woman will be back on Twitter in no time. Every time one of these "I'M QUITTING SOCIAL MEDIA!" things happens, it always turns out to be bullshit.

Movie still sucks.

This is so true. I hope when she does get back on twitter that she starts being more racially sensitive towards white people with her tweets. Stuff like "white people....smh" over and over again may be funny to her but it's not funny to everyone being racially generalized like that.

Absolutely unbelievable to me that people cannot beyond themselves to be able to agree that what happened to Leslie Jones was horrible and unconscionability, even going so far as to say it was even that bad or that she's hardly a victim.

Truly distasteful and embarrassing.

Reboots

So what I hate about this whole Ghostbusters thing is how everyone is jumping on the I hate this because we don't want a reboot. "It's ruining my childhood!" How? How is this effecting you as a person? The Internet is great for many things but allowing people to post their opinions is the worst thing to ever happen to society. It's give a voice to hateful assholes who have nothing better to do than crap on something they Haven't even seen. So what they made another ghostbusters,

People need to get over themselves. !down with comment sections!

Some people hate plagiarism, especially when it's something they love. Remakes used to be generally despised by critics an the media alike. Hollywood started churning them out so much that an entire generation grew up with this laziness and thinks it's perfectly acceptable. People get angry when something wrong gets rewarded.

It isn't plagiarism. It's rehashing an idea. Plagiarism is if they reshot the movie scene for scene word for word.

No, thats not plagiarism as a whole. Lockout was sued by John Carpernter for plagiarizing Escape From New York/LA and won. And Lockout took place in space, had different characters, and a different overall story. Remakes are plagiarism where the original artist doesn't sue due to rights issues, death, or buyouts. But rights or not, it's lazy in the worst possible ways, and is a stain on integrity.

Bravo, Mr. Aykroyd!

Thank you for standing up for Leslie... that shit was awful.

Just for a bit more context, his very strong reaction here was in the aftermath of one of the most vicious and sustained attacks I've ever seen on a celebrity figure, in this case Leslie Jones. The article touched on it but this wasn't your run-of-the-mill trolling... it was hundreds upon hundreds of racist, sexist, and all out vicious tweets from multiple accounts that attacked her dead brother and were replete with dozens of

The article touched on it but this wasn't your run-of-the-mill trolling... it was hundreds upon hundreds of racist, sexist, and all out vicious tweets from multiple accounts that attacked her dead brother and were replete with dozens of ape/monkey memes... it was horrible and brought out of nothing but hatred for the very idea that she'd starred in a Ghostbusters remake. I've always felt if you're gonna be a celebrity, be prepared to take the heat that comes with it but mannn, this was steeped in foulness.

For the record, i really enjoyed the movie too and loved both of the originals. I think Leslie did much better than the trailers made her character seem and Kate McKinnon was such a standout badass!

It isn't hundreds of people though. It's a few with lots of usernames. If you never acknowledge a troll, they get bored and go away. Jones keeps feeding them, and keeps giving these trolls exactly what they want by making them national news and basically turning them into celebrities. Instead of stop crying about being bullied by 12 year olds, she is using them to promote Ghostbusters as a "you have to support this film cause look at how evil the people who don't support are".

they are just trying to create more headlines for Ghostbusters by validating a few 12 year old trolls with multiple user names, pretending these people represent some kind of majority. Someone should tell Jones that the great thing about the Internet is that you can ignore people, but ignoring trolls (like everyone else on the net does) doesn't give you headlines.

Far as I know, all Leslie did was defend herself directly on Twitter under these comments. She then disbanded her Twitter. I don't think she was thinking about headlines. I agree about ignoring people but I doubt it's that easy when hundreds of assholes are directly spewing hatred to you on your feed. She's human after all, not a machine.

I heard about the remake...wasnt looking forward to it. Saw the trailer....looked terrible. Took the family to see it because....well...it IS Ghostbusters after all. I thought the film was terrible, but that had NOTHING to do with an all female cast, or the fact they made the ONLY other male characters incredibly stupid (Mayor and Kevin). Funny, the film makers accusing the reboot haters of being misogynistic, but they make a movie that depicts men as bumbling morons and even shoot their proton

I did not care for Jones' performance in the least. Adlibbing or straight from script..I don't know which...but her character was just loud and obnoxious and firmly reinforces black stereotypes. Now Jones' wants to get on Twitter and scream "racism"...really? After all the "white people" generalizations she has made on twitter? AND THERE HAVE BEEN MANY? If its racist for a white person to get on Twitter and tweet "black people...smh" than it HAS to be equally racist for Jones to tweet "white people....smh". You can't have it both ways. Just ONE of her racist examples....look the rest up for yourselves, they're all over the web now. Open Ghost trap...insert foot Jones?

I did not like Jones' performance or character in the film. Jones has made PLENTY of racist and offensive comments towards white people on Twitter....if you are unable to find them I have no problem copying them from twitter and pasting them here for you to read yourself. All facts. It only takes one white person to find her comment offensive or racist to make the comment racist and offensive....and that happened. And yes...a white person saying "black people...smh" is just as offensive and racist as a black person saying "white people...smh". ITS THE SAME THING! It just makes it a little hard for me to feel completely terrible for someone that cries "racism" to get what she wants...after so many displays of racial insensitivity herself. ANYTIME ANYONE generalizes an entire race in a negative light...or even a positive light...IT IS RACIST. It doesn't matter what race they're referring to.That being said, I DO NOT CONDONE racist behavior in ANY shape or form. I wish EVERYONE would knock it off. So defend your comments and excitement, intelligently...and within the rules and guidelines of joblo. I look forward to it.....and if you can not...then in your own words (albiet edited for rules and regs...and respect) "get the fudge outta here with your own $#!t".

No she did not. So get the fuck outta here with you false equivalence by "white...smh", "black people...smh" bullshit. That's not what happened. Not even "kinda close". Please provide links where she spewed the equivalent of the hate she received. I'll wait.

Here is the link showing her double standard on racism. As for a comparison between what comments are "more" racist than others....to be offended is subjective. Who am I to say that Leslie Jones was or was not offended by what she was being tweeted? But in addition, who is Leslie Jones, or you Darth Jeff for that matter, to tell others that they aren't offended by what she says? As I said before, all forms of racism are bad and everyone needs to quit it. That goes for double standards

But in addition, who is Leslie Jones, or you Darth Jeff for that matter, to tell others that they aren't offended by what she says? As I said before, all forms of racism are bad and everyone needs to quit it. That goes for double standards as well. How can people tweet racist tweets, but then get mad when someone tweets something even "more racist" (again...subjective)? Who gets to decide where the line is? How can you say its perfectly fine for Jones to generalize all white people multiple times? That is racist...whether or not you want to admit it doesn't make it less racist. It's horrible that someone made ape jokes..that is unacceptable. But all racism towards anyone should be unacceptable. She got Milo banned from twitter for failure to follow the rules and regs...and rightfully so....because he encouraged his many followers to attack Jones and that is not right...and its against the rules. BUT....as you'll see in her own tweets...Jones does the same thing to another woman....telling her followers to "get her". Double standard. You know what else is against the twitter [link] as you'll see Jones has no problem breaking those rules either...multiple times. So she makes multiple racist remarks on twitter towards whites and Jewish people, cusses in nearly EVERY TWEET, and encourages people to attack another person......breaking so many rules of twitter....but gets mad when someone else does it to her. I'm sure you don't care about the cussing...as it is against the rules of JOBLO as well and you've been doing it here. I choose not to because it is disrespectful, unbecoming and it makes it hard for people to take you seriously. Anyways, Double standard. Does that make it OK for others to do what they did? Heck no...but it DOES make it hard for me to feel sorry for a hypocrite, especially after she has already generalized me as being stupid...because I'm white..."white people! and "white people....shit! "and "white people....smh!" I'm not going to compare or debate the degree or harshness of the racist statements made by Jones or those made against her because that is all in fact subjective and can not be judged. Your comment cracks me up though...."Please provide links where she spewed the equivalent of the hate she received". Too funny. You're suggesting that Leslie Jones is allowed to spew as much racism and hate as she wants, and that no one else is allowed to respond with any "higher" degree of hate or racism than what she has used. That is just plain hilarious. So by your rules, Jones is the one that gets to draw the line in the racist sand and no one is allowed to cross it...that is until she raises the stakes and says something even more "hateful" than before, thus allowing a responder to tweet an equivalent, but not more than, amount of hate back at Jones. And all these comments are based on a subjective scale? Let me guess. Leslie Jones gets to decide what is "hateful" or "racist", and not the people about whom she speaks. Brilliant. So you don't condem racist behavior at all, just those made against Jones, or is it all black people? How about this...... Racist comments are disgusting, regardless of degree or who they're aimed at. No?
10:35AM on 07/22/2016
That's a competent false equivalence. Where did she tell someone they should be hanged or gassed or caused AIDS? Nowhere. You're wrong. Simple and plain. Also, read more than Breitbart. You'll thank me later.

No, youre wrong darth jeff. I NEVER said the comments were of equal degree. I specifically said that its all subjective. Do you know what subjective means? Its based on opinion and it varies person to person. What offends one may not offend another. What offends one person to the core if their being.....might make another person say "eh". I could say 1985's Teen Wolf is the greatest movie of all time.....to me......but you might hate that movie. One person may think rock is the best...others

I could say 1985's Teen Wolf is the greatest movie of all time.....to me......but you might hate that movie. One person may think rock is the best...others country or rap. You cant argue how people feel about things. Its subjective. I said "racist is racist" which it is. You addressed nothing. Now youre once again telling me that I am wrong "plain and simple" yet refuse to state what exactly Im wrong about. I've never read Brietbart before but what difference does that make, its just one of the many sites that pops up when you search "Leslie Jones Racist Twitter". Either way, I certainly wont be thanking you for anything.....your eyes are obviously closed. I was waiting to find out how I was wrong.....all I got was a response of "youre wrong simple and plain". Maybe you were reading someone elses post. Maybe someone else said that she said those things. I did not. I said "she made racist statements on twitter"...and you said I was wrong. I NEVER compared her statements to the those of her attackers.....ITS SUBJECTIVE. I cant believe Im wasting time retyping what I just tyoed for you earlier. Did you even read my last comment. You probably did...realized there was no argument or intelligent response....that racist is racist....so you just wrote back "youre wrong simple and plain". You DID however, once again reinforce the sad and simple idea that Leslie Jones gets to draw the racist line in the sand and gets to decide whats too much. Youre saying....once again...maybe read this part slower....that Leslie Jones can be as racist and hateful as she wants, but people can only respond to her using an equal amount of racism and hate....no more...an equal amount. Do you realize how rediculous that sounds? So Jones insults the ENTIRE WHITE AND JEWISH population of planet earth with her racist comments....and thats perfectly acceptable...to you and Jones of course.....but when Jones gets racist comments thrown back at her....THATS when its gone to far and has become UNacceptable. Double standard. The degree of severity does NOT matter (even though its subjective)....racist is racist. Again...I'll reiterate...I do not condone the hate Jones has received on twitter. It sickens me...but Mrs Jones needs to look in the mirror as well and be more racially sensitive herself. But whatever. There is obviously no talking to you. Maybe you should read Plato's "The Alegory of the Cave". Im not the only one on Joblo that feels this way...why dont you go troll all the other people who were more harsh (another subjective word for you) towards Jones than I was. At least I conceded that she dosent deserve to be treated that way, nor does anyone else for that matter.

Holy shit leave Leslie Jones out of this, she's apparently the least-terrible part.

She's not your enemy, she's just an actress who took a job that was a huge opportunity for her.

The enemy is Sony, Paul Feig, and Dan Aykroyd.
And they can all shove their uninspired, pathetic cashgrab up their collective fat asses.

There should be a documentary made about the making of this movie. This is exactly What Not To Do. The original actors toy with their fans for years then they finally go ahead with a director that has an agenda to make it completely different and alienate it's original fans. Is not the actresses fault because they don't control the film. But Paul, Dan and Sony are currently reaping what they sown. Don't fuck with your fans.

As someone completely unfamiliar with Jones's work, I thought she was pretty good. There wasn't anything wrong with her. Anyone attacking her skin colour is just a racist. You didn't like her in the movie, fine. Critique that, but don't bash a woman for being one nor for being black. That's just disgusting behaviour. Those people are the problem in this world.
Personally, I thought the movie was ok and McKinnon and Jones were the 2 I liked most. (disagree all you want) Hemsworth was funny

Insanity

This entire situation is mind boggling beyond any scope of imagination prior. Good for Dan Aykroyd coming to Leslie Jones' defense and I don't blame him one bit for not wanting those kinds of "fans" in any way attached to anything to do with Ghostbusters. My heart breaks for Leslie and the cruelty thrown at her. A good person and human being with feelings and they've torn her to shreds. Over what? A movie. WTF

I put red but it should have been green actually, as I am "hip to this news"

I put red but it should have been green actually, as I am "hip to this news" that DA spoke out. :) Won't let me change.

It is mind boggeling....it boggled my mind to know that someone like Jones....with such a racist twitter history of her own...would scream racism on twitter. Heres the link to her twitter history [link] As you can see, she has broken MANY of the twitter rules herself but cries when others do it to her. This in no way justifies what Jones is going through but maybe Jones needs to look in the mirror and stop being such a hypocrite.

If you didn't want to see the movie at first you were a misogynist. Now if you don't want to see it you're a racist.

How about you just accept the fact that maybe... just maybe... your movie looks like shit and someone doesn't want to see it.

It could very well be the case that misogyny and racism has nothing to do with it.

A tiny group of idiots made Leslie Jones sad. That sucks, but let's not pretend this is more than a small handful of idiots and turn it into a narrative that

They're using the race card to sell movie tickets and it's fucking disgusting.

Are you one of the people who was tweeting racist hate filled tweets to Leslie Jones? If not, then he's not talking to you or about you. He's not saying this about everybody who doesn't like the movie or doesn't want to see the movie.

Here is the link to Jones own racist twitter history [link] What a hypocrite. This doesnt justify what Jones is going through...but Leslie Jones need to do some self reflecting of her own.

i dont think racism and ghostbusters have anything to do with each other. the racist comments etc, are done by assholes who are ignorant and uneducated. they are just using the movie as an excuse to say what they want.

i have no interest in this movie at all (i also dont have any interest in Ben-Hur - a remake of a remake, nor do i have any interest in mag 7 either - seven samurai did it best and thats the bottom line).

Surprising that Jones would scream racism on twitter when she herself has a racist twitter history. Heres the link [link] This doesnt justify what shes going through but I cant take her cries seriously until she does some self reflecting and stops being such a hypocrite.
