Social media is in an uproar over the modernized, less sexy look of Space Jam 1 star Lola Bunny in the sequel, Space Jam: A New Legacy.
If you recall, the original Lola Bunny was a top heavy sexy siren who made male fans forget for a minute that she was an animated bunny rabbit.
But this is a new day, and liberals have taken over Hollywood. They have something to say about top heavy sexy sirens — even if they are just cartoon rabbits.
Fans are mortified over the desexualization of Lola Bunny 2.0 in the sequel. Gone are Lola’s sexy curves and her ample boobs are nonexistent. Instead of a crop top and short shorts, Lola is clad in the same genderless team uniform as the boys.
Social media reacted to the drastic change by pointing out that Lola Bunny now looks like a WNBA player — 80% of whom are male-identified lesbians.
L.A. Lakers star LeBron James makes his leading man debut in the new Space Jam: A New Legacy sequel to 1996’s Space Jam starring the g.o.a.t. Michael Jordan.
LeBron appears in the sequel alongside the Looney Tunes all-stars: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Taz and Lola Bunny.
But no one is talking about LeBron, because, apparently, a bunny rabbit is more interesting than he is.
LeBron is probably not happy that a bunny rabbit is taking all his shine in his first big screen debut.
No doubt someone on his team sat him down and gently explained that if no one was talking about Lola Bunny, there would be no buzz about the film at all.
Space Jam: A New Legacy director Malcolm D. Lee dismissed the criticism of new look Lola Bunny.
He tells Entertainment Weekly that he was caught off guard by the “very sexualized” look of the original Lola Bunny, and he thought her look should be updated for a more liberal audience.
“This is 2021. It’s important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters, a.k.a. the team’s best non-LeBron player.”
His explanation may be PC, but fans are exhausted by the liberal gymnastics.
One Twitter user wrote: “I don’t care that Lola Bunny is dressed less sexy in Space Jam 2 but I am unbelievably exhausted by the idea that the way you communicate that a female character is to be taken seriously is by removing her boobs.”
A fan of the original took the time to depict Lola Bunny 2.0 the way she should look in 2021.
Here’s what others on social media had to say about the drastic change Lola has undergone in the sequel:
