“Will Christians please stand up?” Here we go…
The 2021 Emma Stone remake of Cruella is out, and comes with Disney’s ‘first’ live action queer character as John McCrea plays the owner of a vintage shop who becomes friends with Estelle, aka Cruella.
The movie has been met with rave reviews both for performances and its notable queer inclusion within the storyline, although the latter appears to have left some
homophobes people pressed upset.
Enter right-wing Twitter pundit Omar Navarro, who is currently running for the seat of California’s 43rd congressional district (against Maxine Waters) and has publicly, on multiple occasions, opposed LGBT+ rights.
Deep breaths now…
The new Disney Cruella with Emma Stone just ruined my childhood with an openly flamboyant gay in the movie.— Omar Navarro (@RealOmarNavarro) May 31, 2021
Disney persist shoving the LGBT agenda down our throat.

Pansexual is trending and it shouldn’t be trending.— Omar Navarro (@RealOmarNavarro) June 1, 2021
Only two genders exist.
Male and female.
Actor John Stamos was quick to clap-back (hooray) with the following:
If that ruined your childhood, I hope you didn’t watch Full House. Three single men, living under one roof raising kids in San Francisco…. https://t.co/oCadf3xnIK— John Stamos (@JohnStamos) June 1, 2021
Clearly enjoying the attention the tweets were provoking, of course, he retweeted John’s clap back and the subsequent news stories which ran in publications like US Weekly. That’s why we’ve left his name off the heading and post tags here, and mentioned it only once in the article.
It stands to reason that there will always be pockets of hate and intolerance within society. With social media that intolerance can often, unfortunately, also come with a 224,000 strong audience.
Happy Pride month!
Cruella is awesome and it’s out now in theatres and on Disney+. Trailer below:
