I’m seeing complaints that Pennywise in the It sequel kills and eats a gay man and taunts one of the principal characters whom is gay. Apparently Pennywise was some kind of gay icon before this movie’s release (who knew – apparently not me).
Rather than getting into whether or not it’s right or wrong for a monstrous, child-eating, child-torturing and child-killing FICTIONAL clown to engage in anti-gay violence in a movie?
I’m just going to point out that two real-life “monsters” – convicted serial killers John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer – were both gay or had gay tendencies (Gacy may have been bisexual or a closeted gay). Does this make them “enemies” or “allies” to the LGBTQ cause?
Do even our movie villains need to be “politically correct” now?
