  • Guys. GUYS. It's another anti-white feminazi conspiracy!!!!! Put on your heavy-duty fingerless gloves and sharpen your katanas, because just like with Star Wars and Ghostbusters and Iron Man, the evil libtard media is taking another thing away from white men.

    This time, it's a movie that no one's ever really cared about… until now. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney is planning a sequel to/reboot of 1991's box office disappointment The Rocketeer. The new movie, tentatively titled The Rocketeers, will feature a black female lead character.

    We scanned Twitter to find angry white guys complaining about losing another superhero to the scourge of diversity, but were pleasantly surprised to find very few of them. Instead, we found some hilarious clapbacks:

  • What's really funny about all this is that hardly anyone, in 2016, 1991, or any other year, has ever given a sh*t about The Rocketeer. The fact that Twitter racists and sexists haven't yet come out in droves to complain about the movie is the surest sign of this. The response we've seen on Twitter tells us that this time, all of us making fun of them for being idiot trolls about their PRECIOUS CHILDHOODS is maybe, just maybe, having an effect. Here's hoping that the comment sections on posts about this movie stay relatively clean.
