Sony Pictures Head On Ghostbusters Fans – ‘Fuck Them’

femaleghostbustersThe new Ghostbusters movies slated for 2016 has been a controversial one, with even casual and politically trendy fans going ape shit over the treatment of the series and the shoe horning of the ‘all female cast’.  To the extent that the new Ghostbusters showed up at a sick children’s hospital to try and pull some damage control.  If if you thought it couldn’t get any worse than that, you might now believe this next piece of news.

I scarcely believe it myself.

Sony Pictures head Tom Rothman recently spoke to THR about the way the general public has perceived his rebranding of this once beloved franchise. And he calls it outright sexist. He believes the louder majority are simply ‘pissing and moaning’, and bluntly stated ‘Fuck ’em!’ When asked how he feels about the situation, he went onto say the following. “Everybody says we’re making the female Ghostbusters, but I say, ‘No, we’re making the funny Ghostbusters.’ Yes, it happens to be four women. It’s original. You get pissing and moaning on the Internet – sexist comments – but, you know, fuck ’em.” 

What a bout of extreme chutzpah.  To attack consumers and fans so brazenly and with such foul language.  I wonder what the real Sony folks at the top of the food chain in Japan think of this type of behaviour.

    Ghostbusters was good then with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis cause they knew how to make it good and funny, but now today with the raunchy female ghostbusters of today sucks ass.

    I wonder what Rothman will say when this stinker stumbles into theatres and nobody cares about it, or buys tickets to it. What then, Rothman?

    Lol, attacking the very people who ensure his movies make money. He should be kissing out butts, begging us to buy tickets for this tosh, not putting us down.
