Leslie Jones, who starred in director Paul Feig's all-female "Ghostbusters" reboot, is understandably irked about the upcoming Jason Reitman film, which is said to take place in a Ghostbusters-verse which pretends like Feig's film never existed. Jones went to twitter, where else, to voice her discontentment towards Reitman's upcoming film which is supposed to be released in 2020.
"So insulting" Jones wrote in the post, adding, "Like fuck us. We dint count. It’s like something trump would do. (Trump voice)”Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers” ugh so annoying. Such a dick move. And I don’t give fuck I’m saying something!!”
I understand her frustration, after all she barely has a movie career, but can we please acknowledge the fact that critics and audiences did not greet Feig's "Ghostbusters" with open arms? Its box-office was mediocre, audience scores were lacklustre and even the reviews were mixed. Jones needs to realize that chances of a sequel ever happening were slim to none. The 2016 reboot reportedly lost Universal $60-70 million.
I won't even delve into her comparison of the upcoming reboot to Donald Trump because, well, it just reeks of idiocy.
