Iron Fist Star Blames Donald Trump For Bad Reviews!

OK, obviously we are in no way fans of Donald Trump. But how a TV show is received is one problem we're pretty sure you can't blame on him.

You know, unless he's listed as an executive producer.

But that's just what Finn Jones is doing in reaction to the absolute TROUNCING critics have given Marvel's Iron Fist, Netflix's latest addition to their Defenders lineup (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage).

How could Trump possibly have hurt the show?? The Game Of Thrones alum pulls off some Littlefinger-esque excuses as he explains to Radio Times:

"I think the world has changed a lot since we were filming that television show. I'm playing a white American billionaire superhero, at a time when the white American billionaire archetype is public enemy number one, especially in the U.S. We filmed the show way before Trump's election, and I think it's very interesting to see how that perception, now that Trump's in power, how it makes it very difficult to root for someone coming from white privilege, when that archetype is public enemy number one."

That's an interesting thought. Would Iron Man have been as popular in a post-Trump era? Who knows??

The problem with Finn's mental judo — besides being awkwardly slow and unconvincingly choreographed — is that critics didn't really go after his character's "white privilege."

While there was mention of the cultural appropriation, the many critics we perused didn't have room in their reviews to spend any time on it. They were far too busy talking about how the show failed at storytelling, casting, stunts, cinematography, and basically everything else.

In fact, several even slammed the stereotypical "evil billionaire" villains along with the vigilante protagonist, not because some billionaires aren't supervillains but because it was all so damn BORING!

Are YOU planning on checking out Marvel's Iron Fist??
