Homosexual Actor Inexplicably Blames Heterosexuals For Failure of Homosexual Rom Com Movie Tanking at Box Office
I have no idea how straights can be blamed for a homosexual rom com movie failing to make big bucks at the box office. But here we are.
Why would the director (co-writer?), Eichner, who I think also had a role in this movie, assume that heterosexuals would want to sit through a movie about homosexual guys?
Especially when the marketing indicated that the movie would take pot shots at heterosexuals (joking about how heterosexuals are “so over”), the marketing and Eichner, the film’s co-writer, hit people over the head with the notion that the movie was primarily for and about LGBT persons.
I also think with all the streaming services and with the impact of Covid that people just don’t go to the movies so much any more – unless it’s Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun Maverick.”
Also – I am a conservative. I’ve been told by Hollywood – most of whom are far left wingers – that persons with my political views are not welcome. They have said in years past they hate conservatives and don’t want us to see their movies.
In addition, I have no desire to see two men kiss each other, get romantic or sexual (I’m also not a fan of hetero couples getting it on in movies, either).
Hollywood spends a lot of time lecturing and insulting white, non-homosexual people but then they get bent out of shape when we quite understandably don’t want to see whatever movies they’re putting out, especially if it’s about a revered pet group of theirs, such as LGBT.
I am under NO OBLIGATION to attend any movie. None.
I am under NO OBLIGATION to validate anyone.
I am under no obligation to validate or celebrate anyone’s life style choices, which includes their sexual behavior.
I don’t think progressives can accept that others don’t owe them affirmation.
This homosexual actor/script writer should stop blaming heterosexuals for his failures, especially given today’s climate, where far left Hollywood constantly shames white, straight, Christians, and conservatives for being white, straight, Christian, and/or conservative.
It’s so narcissistic to expect people to take abuse off of you but then also support you. You can’t have it both ways.
Bros writer and actor Billy Eichner took to Twitter on Sunday to reflect on the disappointing performance of his gay romcom at the box office following its opening weekend.
The 44-year-old actor-comedian issued a series of tweets about the film, which is the first LGBTQ romantic comedy given a large release by a major studio.
Despite a $22million production budget and rave reviews, the film took in just $4.8million and landed fourth place at the US box office.
Billy Eichner’s gay romantic comedy performed dismally. He sees where the fault lies, and it is not with his film.
This is an occurrence that happens infrequently yet consistently over the years in Hollywood. A new property arrives and it is declared “Important,” — t bears all the earmarks of progressive activism, and that is all the reason to promote it heavily and expect great returns. Then, when things go sideways, the next thing to do is to not look at the problems with your product but rage at what is said to be “the true cause” of your poor result – the audience.

The woketards at TheWrap assured us Bros, an R-rated, homosexual romantic comedy released in 3,350 theaters, would — and I quote — “Kick Off Box Office Revival.”
Why would anyone think that?
I’ll confess I didn’t expect Bros to die-die-die with a, lol, $4.8 million opening, but…
How bubbled do you have to be to predict a gay movie filled with gay sex and gay talking points disguised as dialogue would succeed at the box office?
The American people have no problem with gay-themed comedies. Twenty-seven years ago, The Birdcage (1996) was a huge hit that drew $124 million domestic. In today’s dollars, that’s almost a quarter of a billion — with “B” — dollars domestic.
Can you imagine any comedy making $250 million domestic these days? Comedies suck today.
So why did the public flock to The Birdcage and avoid Bros like the plague?
