Leave it to the internet to hate on things that are mostly a serving of “ok! That’s alright!” When you have people losing their minds over shit like babies singing Adele (No. Just no. Get out of here.), but you’d think Hitler had made the new all-female Ghostbusters based on the internet reaction to it. And now Melissa McCarthy is talking about the backlash.
Last time we checked in with the Ghostbusters hate, Allison gave us the 411 and let us know that according to the numbers on YouTube, the trailer is the most disliked trailer of all time as well as one of the top 25 most hated videos in YouTube history. Really though? This is one of the most hated but The Huntsman: Spring’s Flop isn’t? To be fair, even Melissa isn’t a fan of the trailer. But she’s a fan of the movie and feels bad for the haters. Speaking to The Guardian, she said:
All those comments – ‘You’re ruining my childhood!’ I mean, really. Four women doing any movie on earth will destroy your childhood? I have a visual of those people not having a Ben [her husband], not having friends, so they’re just sitting there and spewing hate into this fake world of the internet. I just hope they find a friend.
Melissa isn’t exactly taking the high road or being business savvy here by saying the haters are lonely trolls. She’s got a a movie to sell and money to make and she’s telling the haters to get a friend, a friend who will definitely be told to not see Ghostbusters. That’s just bad business. Really though, if there’s anything to be mad about it’s that 30 years later and Slimer still isn’t the star! Also, this is 2016 so I’m hoping Slimer finds love in the form of a super sexy lady Slimer. Or at least another hotel room service cart. Everyone deserves love, even slime glob ghosts!
