Disney’s remake of “The Little Mermaid” didn’t have enough “kink” for a New York Times reviewer.
Wesley Morris, the 48-year-old critic-at-large for the Times, argued the movie is too “safe” even though it’s rated PG.
“The new, live-action ‘The Little Mermaid’ is everything nobody should want in a movie: dutiful and defensive, yet desperate for approval,” Morris began.
“It reeks of obligation and noble intentions. Joy, fun, mystery, risk, flavor, kink — they’re missing,” he explained.
Robby Starbuck accused the Times of “pushing pedophile propaganda” by publishing the piece.
“The New York Times just put up a review of the Little Mermaid where the reviewer complains that KINK was missing from the film. The definition of kink: a person’s unusual sexual preferences. Same media denies the left sexualizes kids. The reviewer needs his hard drives reviewed,” Starbuck tweeted.
When one user pointed to the definition of “kink” pointing to a twist in the plot, Starbuck pushed back.
“Lol no. I’ve directed Oscar winning actors and some of the biggest music stars on the planet. Not once has kink been said to refer to a plot twist,” he explained. “The popular culture understanding of kink is very well known. If you referred to a kink any other way you’d do so specifically.”
