Hold your head up, gurl!

While there’s been quite a bit of positive hype over director Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones, there’s also been a LOT of negativity!

Some people are just tired of Hollywood remakes, but unfortunately many negative comments have been in response to the all-female cast — well, aside from Chris Hemsworth being the hottest nerd ever.

Wiig recently talked a bit about her response to the sexist backlash by saying:

“The fact there was so much controversy because we were women was surprising to me. Some people said some really not nice things about the fact that there were women. It didn’t make me mad, it just really bummed me out. We’re really honoring those movies.”

Earlier this year, Feig said the slew of sexist comments he’s gotten is “some of the most vile, misogynistic s**t” he’s ever seen.

The Hollywood director then went on to respond PERFECTLY to the negativity of people claiming he’s going to ruin their childhood by saying:

“It’s so dramatic. Honestly, the only way I could ruin your childhood is if I got into a time machine and went back and made you an orphan.”


We can’t believe the negativity either! With such a HIGHlarious cast — with Kristen in the lead — we’re sure the film is going to be great!

No, it won’t be the same as the original, but that’s the whole point of reboots — to put a bit of a different spin on a great story.

The supernatural comedy is set to hit theaters July 22, 2016 and we know that we’ll be there in support — proton packs and all!

What do you think of Wiig’s comments? Does it make sense that she’s bummed out or should she hold her head up high and ignore the haters?!
