Are you ready for your epic facepalm of the day? The latest internet outrage you absolutely are required to get behind or else you’re sexist has to do with a scene in X-Men: Apocalypse.
The scene from the final battle of the movie (above) was turned into a billboard that Fox had on display in LA. Rose McGowan went on a huge rant about it to The Hollywood Reporter, which actually prompted Fox to cower and apologize for showing a scene from the movie on a billboard:
“In our enthusiasm to show the villainy of the character Apocalypse we didnâ€™t immediately recognize the upsetting connotation of this image in print form. Once we realized how insensitive it was, we quickly took steps to remove those materials. We apologize for our actions and would never condone violence against women.”
Just you wait, due to this outrage you will only see female superheroes fighting female supervillains in future movies in the genre. Congratulations idiots, you won and have made movies even dumber.
