Out Magazine wrote a scathing article titled “Pennywise Is Surprisingly Anti-Queer in It Chapter Two” criticizing the macabre clown, “Pennywise”, for the heinous crime of being unwoke–in this case, not being an LGBT+ ally. So because he kills some gay dude, and isn’t gay he’s anti gay? Wait I’ve seen the movie, and it deals with evil people who gay bash 2 gay dudes, and the clown kills one who’s thrown his way. He never does it cus he’s gay! He does it cus he kills.
“I’m sad to announce that Pennywise is not gay, or even an ally” is my favourite ever quote from an honest to god serious article criticising the lack of LGBT allyship from a child-eating monster in the sewers disguised as a filthy razor-toothed clown. https://t.co/UiZOUobYvD

The guys sexual orientation has NOTHING to do with his death (Xavier Dolan and Taylor Frey) are attacked by a group of homophobes, who beat Dolan’s character Adrian and throw him over the side of a bridge. His boyfriend, Don, follows him down to the river below, just in time to watch Pennywise literally (Spoilers) eats his heart out. Again he’s thrown in a river that ended at the feet of the clown! SO instead of enjoying the movie for what it is which is a movie based on an old book, and it’s fictional! This RAG MAG and gay people on Twitter are claiming that the movie, and clown are “Anti Queer” lol I mean really? IS This how stupid gay people are now on the left? The scene is straight from Stephen King’s original novel,
This attack, inspired by the real-life murder of Charlie Howard, could be written off as simply Pennywise taking an opportunity to feed (although its implied, more so in King’s novel than the film, that the entity It the name the Losers Club gives to the monster otherwise known as Pennywise controls the town of Derry and may have telepathically inspired the homophobes to attack the couple.)
girl you are soooo woke,, like i’m okay with pennywise eating children and literally everyone else around him but eating lgbt people is just soo wrong i would’ve stanned but sadly he’s homophobic and didn’t stick to eating children only😔 https://t.co/LYTUR1g2d6

But what really cements Pennywise’s bigotry is his treatment of Richie (Bill Hader), who is revealed to be closeted and in love with his childhood friend Eddie (James Ransone). When Richie sets off to Derry’s arcade to procure a token needed for the ritual to defeat It once and for all — which turns out to be a literal arcade token he reminisces about being called a “fag” as a child (Finn Wolfhard returns as his younger incarnation) by bully-turned-sociopath Henry Bowers (Nicholas Hamilton). Then he’s attacked by a giant Paul Bunyan statue and, eventually, Pennywise himself.
The piece also ties Pennywise’s non inclusive antics to none other than President Donald Trump which is hilarious since the book is from a time before Trump was a Billionaire, and was in office.
The killer clown isn’t content to just threaten Richie with violence. Instead, he reveals that he knows Richie’s secret, his “dirty little secret.” He doesn’t just say it, he sings it the song even appears on the album’s soundtrack (coming for all the pop girls’ necks, I see). So Pennywise isn’t just the physical manifestation of what is revealed to be some kind of cosmic entity that feeds off fear and human flesh, so he’s a homophobe? No he practices “Fearaphobia!”
But the left wants to push this as if not only the psychopathic supernatural clown has failed the Alphabet People cause, but Trump must be apportioned some of the blame for the clownish creature’s change of heart.
The flesh-eating monster was a-OK until it wasn’t clear whether he’d put a rainbow sticker on his laptop during Pride Month and added a filter or emoji on his social media bio to show alliance. At least Pennywise is doing his part in taking care of the environment by eating people, as cannibalism has been suggested by scientists to mitigate future food shortages. And now cows can fart again! Pennywise will curve population one kid at a time! I wonder does this count as “SUPER LATE Abortion” by the left? LMAO!
