Once again it’s been repeated with another movie release Pixar’s Lightyear, a new review bomb sequence from crazy internet trolls. Just because the beloved Captain America aka Chris Evans is done in the MCU, that does not make sense that the actor is done working with Disney. Chris Evans’ latest Disney-produced movie is just about to release in the name of Pixar’s Lightyear.

Chris Evans Calls Lightyear Review Bombers “Idiots”
The kiss scene has become a crazy sequence for trolls online, which has sadly become commonplace when steps for expression are made in these huge blockbusters. But this is not the end, Lightyear’s stars are taking steps and speaking out against such trolls. Chris Evans who plays the titular star cadet, recently spoke to Reuters that he was against such trolls and people who were offended by the scene, calling them “idiots:”
“The real truth is those people are idiots.”
“There’s been social advancement. march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human.”
“There’s always going to be people who are afraid and unaware and trying to hold on to what was before. But those people die off like dinosaurs. I think the goal is to pay them no mind, march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human.”
In an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter,” Producer Gayln Susman said that Disney was all supportive of the movie featuring a gay scene, but “there was definite pushback on having that kiss.” Following that, In an interview with The Guardian, she asked about people who were offended by the relationship, saying why don’t viewers get “more upset showing failed relationships.” She further interpreted the lesbian couples as “loving” and “supportive,” showing Buzz “exactly what he doesn’t have:”
“We have a relationship here that lasts an entire lifetime. It’s loving, it’s supportive and it shows Buzz exactly what he doesn’t have and that’s the whole point. We should all be so lucky to have that kind of relationship in our life.“
Above all that, it is good to see that Pixar and the film’s biggest star stood up for this. Previously, the famous animation studio went to that covering over this particular decision that saw them taking off along with Disney.
Lightyear is coming to theatres worldwide on June 17.
