Variety's Debruge thinks The Peanuts Movie should have pushed sexual agenda
A movie critic is upset at the upcoming Charlie Brown movie because the titular character doesn’t have a “non-white love interest.”
Variety’s Peter Debruge said the cartoon needs “a little modernization” in terms of interracial romance between eight-year-olds.
“While Franklin remains Charlie Brown’s only brown friend, a non-white love interest would have been as progressive as Schulz’s tomboyish depiction of Peppermint Patty was back in the day,” he said about the Peanuts Movie.
In other words, Debruge believes the movie producers should have used a cartoon character from the 1940s to push a Brave New World-style sexual agenda on little kids.
