Racist Watchmen (the graphic novel/film) fans are giving bad reviews to the Watchmen tv show on Rotten Tomatoes (where it has a 93% of aproval by critics and in Metacritic it has 85%) because the show is "too woke" (i've seen people in twitter calling it Wokemen) and "why people should bring politics to watchmen" and that "is another show that states white man bad , non white man good" and that is "too political correct"
These complains arose because the episode opened with scenes of the Tulsa Race Massacre( a dark event in US history where white supremacists attacked black residents and more than 300 black people were killed and over 10000 people were left homeless )and because in the show there is a white supremacist group called "The Seventh Calvary" that has taken the image of Rorschach and uses his mask, this group was responsible for the killing of cops and their families in Tulsa and are acting in retaliation of president Robert Redford's push to implement reparations to black people.
Watchmen "fans" believe that it's unfair to call Rorschach a white supremacist or someone who would inspire a group like that, but they kind of forgot that he was racist, homophobic, sexist and a fascist, Alan Moore wrote him as a parody of characters like "The Question" and "Mr A" made by Steve Ditko to promote his Ayn Randian ideas, also they have bad reading comprenhension because the comic has always political and left leaning, and not in a subtle way, fake nerd boys strike again.

#WatchmenHBO has a 51% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes because it made the right leaning racists very mad. Also people were upset that Rorschach inspired a white supremacist group which....how is that surprising— Lelanie (@lelaniecypher) October 21, 2019
