Hollywood Actor Chris Evans Calls Critics of Lightyear’s Gay Kiss Including Muslims and Chinese as ‘Idiots’ Who Will ‘Die Off Like Dinosaurs’
Disney and Pixar have restored a gay kiss scene in the upcoming Toy Story prequel movie Lightyear after ‘LGBTQ’ and allies accused the two companies of ‘censoring gay content in children’s movies.’
According to a report by Variety, the gay kiss scene was removed from the film but it was reinstated after woke employees of Pixar sent a letter claiming that Disney executives censored “overtly gay affection” content for children.
“LGBTQ employees and allies at Pixar Animation Studios sent a joint statement to Walt Disney Company leadership claiming that Disney executives had actively censored “overtly gay affection” in its feature films,” the site stated.
Hollywood actor Chris Evans, who voices the main character in “Lightyear,” shut down online critics who reacted to the inclusion of a lesbian couple and their gay kiss scene.
In an interview with Reuters, Evans said those who criticized the movie for having diversity in it are ‘idiots’.
“The real truth is those people are idiots,” Evans said.
“Every time there’s been social advancement as we wake up, the American story, the human story is one of constant social awakening and growth and that’s what makes us good,” the actor added.
“There’s always going to be people who are afraid and unaware and trying to hold on to what was before. But those people die off like dinosaurs. I think the goal is to pay them no mind, march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human,” Evans continued.
Evans previously told Variety magazine that he was ‘happy’ after Disney restored the gay kiss scene.
“It’s wonderful, it makes me happy. It’s tough to not be a little frustrated that it even has to be a topic of discussion. That it is this kind of ‘news.’ The goal is that we can get to a point where it is the norm, and that this doesn’t have to be some uncharted waters, that eventually this is just the way it is. That representation across the board is how we make films,” Evans said.
The movie has reportedly been banned in 14 countries “due to its violation of the country’s media standards” days before its release.
“On Monday, the animated film was banned by the United Arab Emirates “due to its violation of the country’s media standards”. Lightyear was scheduled to release on Thursday (16 June). The UAE, like other nations in the wider Middle East, is a Muslim-led country that criminalizes same-sex relationships,” The Independent reported.
“Disney has reportedly been unable to secure the release of Lightyear in 14 Middle Eastern and Asian countries, including Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Kuwait, Egypt, Indonesia, and Malaysia. The film is unlikely to release in China as well,” the news site added.
The internet weighed in regarding his nasty remarks to critics.
Chris Evans, who stars in ‘Lightyear,’ attacked Muslims and called other critics “idiots” if they don’t want to see overtly gay displays of affection in children’s entertainment. While Evans hopes they die off, will audiences support Disney’s gay agenda? https://t.co/DQ8OlQ5iZt

@PixarsLightyear @Disney @pixar #Lightyear #lightyearbanned Why do you insist on inappropriate sex/kissing scenes or innuendo in your family movies. We will not be watching this. @ChrisEvans essentially calling all Christians, Jews and Muslims idiots also a great way to alienate
