‘Halloween Kills’ opened last week and features a scene where a gay couple is murdered by Michael Myers
One of Halloween’s main villains, Michael Myers, is being branded as “homophobic” in the latest iteration of the “Halloween” horror film franchise.
“Halloween Kills” was released last week, and features a scene where a bloodthirsty serial killer murders a gay couple.
The tweets seem to have been jokingly written, but he and others like him have opened a flood of criticism over the claim and debate over whether the fictional killer may be “gay.”
Also posted by Gamer, an LGBTQ publication Op-Ed Squealing Claims That the infamous villain is terrified of homosexuality, noting that “the way he handles the death of a gay couple in the latest film basically doesn’t separate Bob, Annie, and Linda from the butcher. Halloween”
“If there’s one thing that anyone is a fan of Halloween The series knows it is this: the origins of Michael Myers lie a mystery beyond him as the human form of pure evil. He kills because that’s what he does. He’s a man of blood and flesh (at least, that’s what we know so far in this remake) and the only thing that drives him is suffering and misfortune,” the op-ed says.
