Amazon is doing its best to push people to watch their new “woke” version of “Cinderella” starring singer Camila Cabello, but even critics really, really dislike the flick.
Notably, the movie has been hyped for its “feminist” angle and its not-so-subtle LGBT activism. Cabello’s character “puts her dreams before a man” and her fairy godmother is actually played by a male actor named Billy Porter. “Fabulous Godmother,” or “Fab G,” is “genderless,” identifying as neither male nor female.
Porter said “his character is ‘genderless’ because discussion between himself and Cannon led to the conclusion that ‘magic has no gender’ so the character can be genderless,” Insider reported.
Surprisingly, critics, who normally embrace Woke films, have rejected the remake, while the public seems to be embracing the flick.
As of Wednesday, “Cinderella” has a dismal 44% rating from critics and a 71% score from the general audience on popular movie rating site Rotten Tomatoes.
