“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” is a very popular show due to the fact that the fans fell in love with the great bonding and relationship-building between the two characters, Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes.
During an interview with Variety, Anthony Mackie did not like that fans were stating that there was a “Bromance” forming between the two characters, Anthony Mackie said:
“The idea of two guys being friends and loving each other in 2021 is a problem because of the exploitation of homosexuality. It used to be guys can be friends, we can hang out, and it was cool. You can’t do that anymore because something as pure and beautiful as homosexuality has been exploited by people who are trying to rationalize themselves.”
Fans of the MCU are very upset over his comments and made them known on social media.
Do you think people are too sensitive? Or do you think Anthony Mackie misspoke?
