New iPetition Attacks New Female ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot: Can Fans Stop Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones Movie?

By James Knight on Jan 30, 2015 01:35 PM EST, iPetitions and other online round robin forums have provided a place for the people to gather and have their collective voices heard on all sorts of issues. Petitions have been used for everything, from bringing awareness to important social issues, to saving film franchise and TV shows. Now, there a new iPetition set out to stop the new all female lead Ghostbusters film, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, from ruining their childhoods. The river of slime must be bubbling overtime on this one.

The new (and possibly worse) online iPetition, is calling for the cancellation of the new Ghostbusters film, claiming:

“We've had enough of our heroes destroyed and embarrassed. The Ghostbusters are the last of our on-screen heroes who have not been ruined with ridiculous sequels, prequels and reboots. We don't want to see the Ghostbusters franchise ruined. We've lost enough of our heroes to horrible additions by incompetent filmmakers or filmmakers that got too old, lazy and out-of-touch.”

The iPetition goes on to attack director Paul Feig, adding:

“Paul Feig is the wrong choice to direct. He is a decent TV director, at best. As far as the success of Bridesmaids, that was all due to the talent and charm of Kristen Wiig.”

Apparently, they missed the part where Kristen Wiig was cast in the new film, and Feig’s success with The Heat.

The petition goes to make one final plea to Sony, adding:

“You're only going to anger fans and film critics. Sony doesn't need any more haters than you already have with what you've done to Spider-man. Please, stop. Doug Belgrad, Amy Pascal, Jamie Lieberman and everyone else at Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE), don't let this happen. I'm calling on all other Ghostbusters fans for help to get Sony to realize they're about to ruin the Ghostbusters franchise.”
