As most of you have probably heard, the Ghostbusters are coming back for a new film, with (hopefully) all of the remaining original cast set to return. Most of you also know that in 2016 a reboot of the franchise was released with an all-female cast.
The film was not well received, and it’s poor performance and lack of acceptance was blamed on sexism and bigotry. One of the cast members of the all-female cast, Leslie Jones, has expressed her distaste with the newly-announced film. She did not hold back in a post she made on Twitter. You can check out what she had to say below.
So insulting. 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!!

The 2016 film wasn’t particularly good, though it wasn’t entirely awful, either. The thing about it was, it simply wasn’t the Ghostbusters. It wasn’t Stantz, Venkman, and Zeddmore (Sadly, Harold Ramis has left us) and, to many people, both men and women, myself included, those are the Ghostbusters, and that’s who many of us wanted to see in a new film.
I think her reaction is a bit over the top, it was never her franchise to begin with, and she seems bitter that fans are now getting the film they had always wanted. From what I’ve heard and read it seems Bill Murray hasn’t totally committed to the film, hopefully, he will come around.
