Everyone Hates ‘Velma’ But It’s a Hit on HBO Max: The Paranoid Conspiracy That Thinks the Scooby-Doo Spinoff Parodys Woke Culture

HBO Max reports that its new ‘Scooby Doo’ spin-off series ‘Velma’ for adults It has the most watched animated premiere in history, This isn’t very reliable data, as there haven’t been many original animated series under Max’s label since its creation, perhaps the most popular of all time being ‘Harley Quinn’, but it’s an achievement and not one to be taken lightly.

There is a paradoxical reality in the data. People are talking about the series, but in a way it is nothing short of disastrous. actually ‘Velma’ currently has the lowest viewership ratings for an HBO production Rotten Tomatoes, 6%, and critics don’t like it, with 55% positive reviews. It is relatively common that there is number bombardment on pages open to the public, such as IMDb, where it has only reached 1, 4 when there is a drastic change in character, such as here.

“sacrificial trash” hypothesis

In addition to acknowledging the revelation that the character is LGTBI+ from her latest animated film, creator Mindy Kaling has changed the character to a teen from India, as well as changing her race to shaggy. something that really inspires people who usually complain about this crazy, but which no one expected This would enrage even the most progressive viewers, who apparently believe the series is laughing at them., Hate on both sides.

Before analyzing the situation that Forbes has disclosed, it is convenient to contextualize the fall of Kaling among a certain segment of the American population after showing sympathy for JK Rowling. in a tweet, which linked her to a feminist segment called “Terf”. This has given rise to conspiracy theories that believe the series is a parody of what it thinks right is comedy, not only because of the new cast changes, but because of its jokes about white boys, which has led people to think that have inspired The author would be secretly conservative and wanted to ridicule the left so as to point the chain to the right And blame it on a narrative imbued with racial sensitivity or social justice.

is crazy The series talks about being “sacrificial garbage” apparently designed to incriminate themselves and create guilt. And more hate for “anti-wock” reasons. It’s hard for Kaling, known for her very open “I never,” to turn something around, but her statement about “‘The Office’ can’t happen today” has also made headlines. The problem is that although this is not what ‘Velma’ intended, it seems to be causing all possible derision from conservative circles and this does not go down well with those who are critical of these racial changes and similar details. are going to adopt.

only bad jokes

‘She-Hulk’ laughed at the misogynist fans of the comics, but it broke the fourth wall, and created a meta paradox about the haters of the series, but ‘Velma’ has what many critics believe to be “what’s missing is a disappointing meta approach“other her”abysmal lack of meaning“And What It Feels Like”Written by TV writers who only talk to other TV writers“, which is summarized in He’s so poor at throwing jokes at regressive America that he wants to criticize that it feels like he’s self-sabotaging, doing an involuntary wake-up parody.


Thus, the laughs are focused, for example, on ridiculing the gang’s leader, Fred, for being a pale white man whose steaks are cut by his mother and whose penis is small. The lack of subtlety in their jokes has reinforced the general “review bombing”, including the statute’s own canons for sexual references among teenagers, but on occasion it hasn’t had too many defenders to lift the series off the ledge. What is the real principle behind the success of the series? ,hate to see“, i.e., how people continue to watch the series out of morbid fascinationNot really because he likes it. It can be seen in the reactions to Kaling’s victory tweet.

Be that as it may, there aren’t many indications that ‘Velma’ will be renewed by HBO Max, at least not until it’s verified whether there are “hateful ideas” or if it’s really going to attract viewers. manages, meanwhile, it remains as an example that shows us the delusional political response to the animated series, the conspiracy mindset in which we And the difficulty in finding imagery that is not in some way influenced by the cultural reality of generational contrasts or the consequences of the marketing dynamics of large companies that have used inclusion and diversity as currency to project a brand image.
