Samuel L. Jackson Not Holding Back On Internet Trolls Coming For Brie Larson: 'Incel Dudes,’ Beware
It’s always nice to have someone ready to watch your back.
No matter how many years go by, the entertainment industry is still as hard on women as it ever was. Aside from sexual assault, unrealistic beauty standards, and crappy treatment from production studios, the models, singers, and actresses who happen to make it in Hollywood are still mistreated by fans.
With the advent of social media, everyone got the same opportunity to hide behind the screen and spew whatever words of hate they wanted.
This power has made it seem as if the haters have not only multiplied in number, but also grown in their cruelty, not even bothering to choose their words.
One of the female celebrities who got the rough treatment on the internet in recent years was Brie Larson, who was cast and portrayed Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in the MCU movie of the same name.
MCU fans are already notorious for their hatred of women in the movies, exemplified by Elizabeth Olsen and her portrayal of Wanda Maximoff.
With Larson, however, the hatred got so bad that some of her co-stars had to step in.
In his recent interview with Rolling Stone, Samuel L. Jackson was asked about Brie Larson and her reaction to being targeted by so many haters on the Internet. Because he loves his co-star so much, Jackson expressed his support and respect for Larson:
“She’s not going to let any of that stuff destroy her. These incel dudes who hate strong women, or the fact that she’s a feminist who has an opinion and expressed it? Everybody wants people to be who they want them to be. She is who she is, and she’s genuinely that.”
Fortunately, the actress doesn't seem to be too bothered by all the Internet comments. After all, the love and support from the fans of her performance, as well as those who are close to her in real life, must be suppressing all the online negativity that is being spread around.
Although it was delayed a few months to November 23rd, The Marvels will still be hitting theaters this year. Keep an eye out for more news and behind-the-scenes updates to find out more about the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel!
