Some of you might have heard of it already, but drama has been stirring in the Heathers fandom since Paramount decided to (attempt to) pander to modern fans of the 80s classic.


... And let's say that the fans aren't too happy to see the antagonists portrayed by a plus-size girl, an asian girl, and a genderqueer person uwu

In comes the salt:

You get the gist. My main source of salt is tumblr, but if you guys find it elsewhere, go on right ahead.

EDIT: Adding the original movie's trailer for context

These idiots being mad about the writers jamming as many tumblr stereotypes into the cast as they could is seriously boggling me. Just literally always outraged about anything. They did it for them, to make people quit their incessant whining about inclusion and white characters, yet still they reeeee

I actually never liked the original Heathers because I thought it was too outdated by the time I came around... the preppy white blonde snooty girls were so heavily demonized in the '80's and '90's that by the time I was in high school they had mellowed out. This new reboot seems a lot more realistic to the assholes of my high school.

They will never be satisfied, therefore they should be ignored.

I appreciate that they subverted the tropes that people expected, but apparently you can never portray any marginalized group as flawed in any way or else these fictional characters in a show you can choose not to watch will cause real people to die.

I already said my thoughts on this in the thread for the damn thing, but if what I think is going to happen in the series does the SJWs who are whining about this for making Tumblrites the villains and any anti-SJWs who are rejoicing because of that will have switched sides on the topic.

Otherwise, bad idea, never should have been remade, blah blah blah. Back to the salt.
