There are some pretty big questions in life that need to be answered. For many internet users, one of the biggest questions right now is whether screen killer Michael Myers is an angry homophobe. In Halloween Kills, Myers, played by James Jude Courtney, slaughters a gay couple who live in their parents’ house in his usual bloodthirsty fashion.

Big John and Little Joh are looking for the intruder after realizing someone broke into her house. Needless to say, they never really got a chance to make it through alive.

Of course, the allegations of homophobia after the premiere of Halloween Kills sparked a heated debate among social media users.

“Halloween Kills really destroyed my respect for Michael. He was homophobic for killing a gay couple. Racist for killing black people and he obviously rejects democracy by refusing to die tonight, ”wrote a Twitter user.

Another user said: “You really had to kill the gay couple Michael Myers is homophobic asf”.

However, some are not entirely convinced of the alleged homophobia. Some armchair critics have claimed that Myers’ murder of a gay couple was just a sign of equality – because apparently it’s not just straight couples who can be butchered these days …

In defense of the franchise and Myers, another Twitter user wrote: “Hey LGBTQ community, MICHAEL MYERS IS NOT HOMOPHOBIC. Gays moved into HIS home, and by the time you’ve seen the damn movies, NO ONE MAKE ANYONE OUT IN HIS HOME ALIVE. I’m pansexual and I’m not offended that Michael kills gays. ”

Elsewhere in the world of horror films, in the new Chucky TV adaptation, The Child’s Play, the murderous doll befriends the gay youth Jake, who is the Doll knowingly buys at a flea market. In fact, Chucky on the show goes so far as to openly support gay and transgender characters.

One person who pointed it out wrote on Twitter that “Michael Myers is canonically homophobic and Chucky is canonically anti-homophobic, I have this one Year not expected. “

Michael Myers is canonically homophobic and chucky is canonically anti-homophobic, I didn’t expect that this year

As the twelfth edition, Halloween Kills is already proving to be an extremely successful endeavor for the franchise, the brought in around 50.4 million dollars on the opening weekend alone.
