"It is about two gay dudes who meet and have a relationship": Ben Shapiro Criticising 'The Last of Us' Episode 3 Backfires as Fans Call Him "Brain-Dead" For His Views

The Last of Us has already settled in the fans’ hearts as one of the best shows in recent times. Its third episode had been unique in its own way, which showed a perspective outside of Ellie and Joel’s. The show focuses on Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey’s characters in a post-apocalyptic world. The game adaptation has been climbing up the charts as quickly as possible.

The series has managed to make people cry and be mesmerized by the beautiful direction and storytelling. The series has easily shown that both gamers and non-gamers can enjoy the journey because of just how immersive the experience of watching it can be. However, Ben Shapiro’s review of the third episode made fans immediately jump in defense of the series and how wrong his analysis had been.

Ben Shapiro Faces Backlash For His Analysis Of The Last Of Us Ep 3

Ben Shapiro recently shared his views on the third episode of The Last of Us. The episode was titled Long, Long Time and took a new turn away from the series to show a beautiful yet tragic love story between two people surviving in a post-apocalyptic world and finding love in the process. Shapiro’s analysis of the show has infuriated the fans because of how far-fetched and controversial his views are.

“One gets cancer and decides to essentially euthanize himself. And gay Ron Swanson decides that he is also going to commit suicide at the same time because of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ or ‘Romeo and Romeo’ in this particular case. It’s all really well produced, and it’s beautifully shot.”

He wasn’t able to understand the show or the third episode, completely misinterpreting what the series is even about. He referred to the infected humans as zombies and even kept pushing toward how the episode lacked any ‘zombies’.

“This is not a show about zombies. This is a show and a story about love. It is a story about two people that are both lost and find each other and how they make their way through this world.”

Fans as well countered Ben Shapiro’s claims by stating that the show has nothing to do with zombies.

“It’s always been a story about love under circumstances that push people to the brink, about the extremes of light and dark humanity is capable of.”

They focused on the humanity of the series and how beautifully heartwarming yet heartbreaking it can be. The audience elaborated on the attachment that two people can create and bond over even in a world that is slowly dying.

The Last of Us is now streaming on HBO Max.
