The star of the new Buzz Lightyear film says those critical of it because it features a gay kiss should be ignored.
Lightyear star calls critics of on-screen representation ‘idiots’
LOS ANGELES: The new animated Pixar movie Lightyear features a gay couple, the latest step by Disney to show traditionally under-represented groups on the big screen.
Actor Chris Evans, who voices the main character in Lightyear, applauded moves to reflect all types of people and said those who react negatively should be disregarded.
“The real truth is those people are idiots,” Evans said ahead of the debut of Lightyear in theatres on Friday.
“Every time there’s been social advancement as we wake up, the American story, the human story is one of constant social awakening and growth and that’s what makes us good,” he added.
