A new trailer for Ghostbusters, the highly anticipated all-female reboot of the 1984 comedy classic, was released today!
The stars of the upcoming flick have had to ward off many online trolls. Vulture recently published “Why the Ghostbusters Trailer Is the Most-Hated Movie Trailer on YouTube” on April 29th. And it's due to "blatant sexism".
“Though the official teaser only debuted last month, it has already received over 500,000 thumbs-down votes — so many down-votes that it has now entered the unfortunate pantheon of YouTube’s 100 most-disliked videos ever. Comments underneath the trailer include swipes like “This movie is pure feminazi propaganda,” and “When are people going to learn that women aren’t funny?” while a YouTube search for the trailer is more likely to produce angry reaction videos like “5 Reasons the Ghostbusters Trailer SUCKS,” each one advertised with a very chill thumbnail image, like a guy flipping the bird or a guy cocking a finger to his head like he’s about to blow his brains out.”
