If you’ve ever seen Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, you probably loved it as a kid. But, as an adult, there are some scenes and messages that are…problematic.
Every year the elf throws the bird out of the sleigh without an umbrella, even though earlier the bird said it CAN'T FLY. Every. Damn. Year. #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer

Watching the traditional American cinematic allegory about a set of dysmorphic, gender-queer heroes fighting against convention to carve their place within a hetero-centric, patriarchal, totalitarian state. Gripping. #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer pic.twitter.com/e84g6Mbma0

Oh no. It’s #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer I don’t have strength to watch this again. Those poor elves. That bully with the whip. Abusive deer. Dentist shaming. Unloved toys. It’s too much.

Ugh…..here comes Comet. The worst coach you've ever seen since on screen since the last move you ever watched about youth sports.#RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer

If I was #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer I would have told Santa to kiss my red glowing ass. Now you need me? Good luck flying in the dark.

Let it be known that the toy bird that can’t fly gets murdered by one of Santa’s elves during the end credits of #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer. Gotta give credit to @RalphGarman for pointing this out to me. pic.twitter.com/qGNcevXXxl

Watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The moral of the story I’ve learned since watching it as a kid: People are dicks until they need something from you. #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer

Has anyone else noticed that within the first five minutes of #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer two characters get bullied?
