Film studio issues real-world apology to histrionic SJW, for comic-book-world offence

David MenziesMission Specialist

It must be fascinating to be a social justice warrior, enjoying the finest creature comforts as you pursue a useless fine arts degree, paid for by your parents or taxpayers. Yet, you feel kinda left out when it comes to protesting injustice.

With no racial segregation or Vietnam War to protest, progressives search for something, anything, that offends their politically-correct sensibilities. Maybe a Halloween costume or the name of a football team?

So, what’s the latest trivial tempest-in-a-teapot that has them demanding an apology? They’re upset over a movie poster for a fictional film based on a comic book.

20th Century Fox recently issued a grovelling apology for a promotional poster from the latest X-Men flick depicting Mystique being strangled by the villain Apocalypse, after fringe elements claimed the image promoted violence against women.

It’s not like Apocalypse is an ex-CBC radio host and Mystique, a former Trailer Park Boys actress. They’re actors enhanced with a ton of CGI depicting super-powered mutants pretending to fight each other, right?

But that doesn’t matter to SJW's like Kathi Ziolkowski of Toronto who launched an online petition to get the studio to remove the poster because, according to her, that image wasn’t promoting the “right message”. The studio released the following statement in order to appease thin skinned progressives:

“In our enthusiasm to show the villainy of the character Apocalypse we didn’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.”

Progressives fail to understand that no reasonable man looks at an image of a woman being harmed and says, “That looks like fun. I think I’ll slap Sheila around when I get home.” Men who physically abuse women are real-life monsters.

Too bad Mystique didn’t shape-shift into a white male on that poster. Progressives would probably have applauded that imagery. And if 20th Century Fox wants to issue a statement of regret for being offensive, how about an apology for last summer’s release of that stink-bomb known as The Fantastic Four? Now there’s something to really be sorry about...

This really has to stop. There seems to be a generation of people watching movies/tv/listening to music for the purpose of FINDING A REASON TO GET OFFENDED. I can’t handle it. I love Toronto, but we are the SJW capital of the world. When will it end? Why does anyone cave to their demands? As the article states, it’s an ad for a film featuring fictional characters from a comic book movie. Why can’t Ms. Ziolkowski and the million other SJW’s in this city spend their energy on something meaningful? Children who don’t get to eat three squares? First Nations housing? Our insane hydro costs? No, instead they’d rather be offended by comic book characters and years-old songs that nobody has ever heard of (see Erica Shiner, who along with her SJW Twitter brigade, managed to get a free show from Action Bronson shut down.)

Somebody tell me when this will all be over.

Can one say that Jennifer Lawrence is a pleasant looking 21st Century Fox, or is that misogynist?

If it is, does that mean ‘Foxy Lady’ by Jimmy Hendrix must be banned from existence? Should that producer, distributor and all jazz, blues and rock stations that played the tune make heart felt apologies for playing the misongynist’s tune. However, since Hendrix was black, does that excuse him? However, he was a paratrooper so does that negate the excuse he was black?

Maybe some of the regressive socialists that monitor this site and at times comment could clarify.

Regardless, Jennifer Lawrence is a 21st Century Fox.

You are an idiot if you actually believe that.

20th Century Fox. Brings back memories that the 20th century was a period of intelligence from both right and left before the current SJW century, where only the right shows any intelligent skeptical thinking but we are stuck to the regressive left’s ignorant narratives.

20th Century Fox needs to change its name since it has discredited the 20th Century with its mind numbed apology.

Mansy: Sigh – the guy phrased his answer wrong and she humiliated him with an ignorant + arrogant response (with no fear of reprisal because if anyone dared to they’d be labelled uptight or blacklisted from future press stuff ) and the laughing people were acolytes/sycophants. Humiliating someone + virtue signalling to hide arrogant behaviour is – presto – bad behaviour.

I watch old reruns now to keep my sanity intact! All these cry babies need to see psychiatrists. It’s frightening how really off center these fools really are. They need to be deprogrammed from all the Marxist ideology that they were brainwashed with in school. I hope these people don’t breed, I would feel terrible for their kids! They don’t stand a chance with these lunatics as parents.

How do you set up a crowd fund…I want to produce John Norman’s "Slave Girl of Gor with Leslie Gore singing "You Don’t Own Me’ as the theme music.

@acuuna Actually there are several big name female movie producers and “executive producers” and bankrollers of film. A lot of people just never notice in the roll up credits.

Robin Williams’ wife produced most of his last productions. That was because she had received one of the most lavish divorce settlements in history and on the backslope of his career bankrolling his endeavours was the only way she could insure that it would continue…some say this had a lot to do with his suicide…some say it had everything to do with it.

Can they not just say that he identifies as a woman or some other ‘gender identity’?
commented 2016-06-11 12:11:58 -0400

It wasn’t bad behavior at all – hence people laughing. She has a pulse, she spunky and she doesn’t bullshit. It’s actually refreshing as I said when most actors come across as phony.

You are just too uptight.
commented 2016-06-11 11:57:20 -0400
+ in this case the guy wasn’t even a bullshitter!
commented 2016-06-11 11:56:22 -0400
Mansy : I don’t see the “no bull shit” personality, I’m afraid. Just a delusional media generated “celebrity” on a high horse that doesn’t actually exist (Although I suppose I’m giving free press just by talking about it and posting links)Theres no excuse for bad behaviour – there are ways to correct people effectively without humiliating them. I challenge you to do the same. Watch the video again… she barely omits the word “idiot” from her response!

Ramadan by the numbers

Ramadan Bombathon 2016 Day number 6

Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is “Islamophobia”.
We put that narrative to the rest each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks categorized by motive.

Motive – Terror in the name of Islam………………..Attacks = 51….…….Kills = 376
Motive – All other religions combined …………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0
Motive – By Islamophobes…………………………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0

Why would anyone respond to such stupidity?

Jennifer Lawrence is awesome, real and down to earth. Unlike so many actresses that come across as phony and constantly reading a script even in their personal life. I love Jennifer Lawrence’s no bullshit personality.

Although, I would suggest that you have your blood pressure checked.

You look as if you are about to explode.

Totally with you on this one actually.

And what about Xena: warrior princess, there is gender equality if ever one has seen. She can fight and kill anyone and anything, but a male comic book villain can not fight her back.

Perseus snuck into Medusa’s cave and cut her head off while she slept. Later he uses the head to kill the sea serpent Cetus, whom was rumoured to be a transgender serpent. SJW no doubt will demand a rewrite on many levels. After all, what good is mythology if it isn’t current and politically correct and suckling up to SJW.
commented 2016-06-11 10:28:40 -0400
Yeah can you imagine her kind of movie?

Apocalypse, raises clenched fingers to destruction.

Apocalypse: I am Apocalypse! Fear me! Bow down. Or I will DESTROY you all!
(Insert maniacal laugh.)

Mystique assumes chin up, fists on hips, defiant stance. (Of course in that costume she can’t spread legs cause, um, well. You know.)

Mystique: I am woman. Hear me roar.

Apocalypse: You is a broad? Oh. Um. Sorry. I uhm. Didn’t realize Ma’am—! I mean sir—! I mean Xir. Uh. I’m so confused.

After an awkward pause, Apocalypse thumbs a vague direction.

Apocalypse: You know. I think I’ll just. Kinda. You know. And again, let me apologize. I’m so sorry. Didn’t mean to. Um. You know.

Apocalypse leaves and once again our fair city is saved because an ex mutant villain -Now hero? – reveals she is WOMAN.
Because it was convenient.

Then at least.

Not that being a woman makes any difference.

Except if she wants to shower with the guys that is cause at that time she’s feeling like a guy then.

Or could she just be feeling like a slut then.


I’m so confused.

No one goes to movies anymore – just download the movie for free after it goes to DVD.
commented 2016-06-11 10:22:25 -0400
Smart move 20th Century Fox – piss off the stupids and then apologize.

Jennifer Lawrence made some great porn – the bent over raisin shot was the best. Google: Jennifer Lawrence fappening.

And there are more women that like to be roughed up while being banged that you could imagine – including choking. Just ask that “goat herder” who was fired from the CBC.
commented 2016-06-11 10:13:42 -0400
P.S. she only wore the blue paint for about 30 seconds in the film … looks like the actress has contempt for the roles that made her famous. Don’t want to put words in her mouth but does that mean she has contempt for her X – Fans as well?

Check this out https://youtu.be/F_zja9pepgU

How embarrassing for Lawrence … but saying things like that comes from being a spoiled brat. I don’t hate her acting but don’t understand the star power. The world still loves her after she openly insults a reporter because of ignorance…

Mr. Menzies hits it dead centre again … err … a figure of speech NOT referring to actually injuring a person.

If the bad guys didn’t fight the good girls then the S J W would accuse the movie of portraying females as weaklings.

Come on Dave, to understand the seeming neurotic behaviour from SJWs you have to put them on the anaylists couch – every word whispered, screeched or keyboarded by a social justice neurotic is a paranoid cry for help – they are eternally frightened by encounters with the real world- and they are eternally outraged that real life does not fit the fairy tale narrative of their cultural marxist dogmas – it scares the hell out of them that their unreal world is not real.

Feel compassion – if you were constantly in psychotic collision with reality, and had to bear the fear and loathing this produces in the average SJW wouldn’t your head explode at the most minuscule provocation too?
commented 2016-06-11 09:18:29 -0400
if the skank is going to do nothing but cry about movies, then put a warning on the movie that it is recommended for men only. women watch at your own risk …
the ladies can always sit at home and listen to Hillary lie for hours on end…
and then they can gout and vote with their vajayjays to make them feel included.
commented 2016-06-11 09:13:41 -0400
maybe some big-name, female movie producer should re-do this… oh wait…there aren’t any.
that says it all.
commented 2016-06-11 09:09:18 -0400
Yet, these so called SJW’s have no problem with the burning of 19 women or the sale of books like “Fifty Shades of Gray”.
Sick bastards and sicker society!
