Potentially Problematic Bae & Scene Stealer Jay Hernandez Defends 'Suicide Squad'

  • When asked about how savage the critics have been about SS, the 'Crazy/Beautiful' bae said: “I think it sucks. I mean, you know, obviously we worked hard and tried to give the fans what they wanted, and it’s, it’s weird that like that some of the criticism I heard was that it was too much like a comic book you know what I’m saying?"

  • Unfortunately, he cotinued: "In terms of like, you have these characters uh, uh, being objectified like Harley Quinn. I’m like if, I mean there’s certain elements that are just part of being a comic book, and if you’re trying to portray that on a film you have to sort of be true to that because if you don’t the fans of the comics are going to be offended ya know, so it’s like you’re trying to satisfy a lot of people.”

  • He then says that critics can kiss his ass, etc.


Do you think adaptations have to be loyal to the source material to the point of reproducing its problematic aspects, ONTD? Is Jay a problematic fave now? TYFYA!
