Conservative YouTuber enlists “anti-woke” Minion army in the culture war against Disney
Gen Z users dress to the nines to go catch Minions: The Rise Of Gru on the big screen.So, it should come as no surprise that, yes, even conservatives lay claim to the Minions, using the googly-eyed henchmen for their own memes and nefarious purposes.Related: Chris Evans doesn’t mince words when asked about homophobes hating on ‘Lightyear’At least that’s what’s happening over on YouTube, where the trolling video editor know as “Yellow Flash” has decided, one, that Minions are some kind of emblem of conservative ideology and, two, their recent box office success is making the “woke” left “furious.” Um, sure?We’re embedding the video below for posterity’s sake, but we strongly suggest you don’t watch, lest the inanity of Yellow Flash’s musings turns your brain to mush and has you speaking gibberish just like the Minions.Somehow, this is all Lightyear‘s fault. As we’ve reported, the recent Pixar film’s inclusion of a (very brief) same-sex kiss has conservatives in a tizzy, and some—like Yellow Flash—have tried to paint the tepid box office for the Toy Story spin-off as an indicator that audiences are rejecting “woke Hollywood.”Enter Minions: The Rise Of Gru, the sequel to a spin-off that’s also technically the prequel to 2010’s Despicable Me, the animated family film that first introduced the world to Minions.
Chris Evans brands critics of Lightyear same-sex kiss ‘idiots’ and he’s so over the debate
Chris Evans has aired his ‘frustrations’ with the controversy surrounding the same-sex kiss in Pixar’s Lightyear. The Captain America actor takes the lead in the anticipated Toy Story spin-off, voicing the main character Buzz Lightyear. However, the film’s release has been overshadowed by criticism over a same-sex kiss between two female characters, one of which is named Hawthorne and voiced by Uzo Aduba. Earlier this year, it was reported that Disney had cut the scene from the film before restoring it amid backlash over Florida’s Don’t Say Gay bill. LGBT employees and allies at Pixar are said to have sent a letter to Disney bosses claiming that the company had censored ‘overtly gay affection’ in its films. Lightyear has since been banned in countries such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait over its LGBT themes. Addressing the storm, Chris, 41, told Reuters quite bluntly: ‘The real truth is those people are idiots. ‘Every time there’s been social advancement as we wake up, the American story, the human story is one of constant social awakening and growth and that’s what makes us good.’ The Knives Out star also addressed reports of Disney restoring the kiss scene and said ‘it makes me happy’. To view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 videoHowever, he added to Variety: ‘It’s tough to not be a little frustrated that it even has to be a topic of discussion.
