The upcoming female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot — starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones — has faced a particularly high amount of sexist backlash following the release of its official trailer a few months ago, which quickly became the most-disliked movie trailer in YouTube history. Someone who won't be bothered with the negative response and internet trolling, though? McCarthy herself. “All those comments — ‘You’re ruining my childhood!’ I mean, really,” she said in a new interview with The Guardian. “Four women doing any movie on earth will destroy your childhood? I have a visual of those people not having a Ben [Falcone, her husband], not having friends, so they’re just sitting there and spewing hate into this fake world of the internet. I just hope they find a friend.” McCarthy: 1. The commentariat: 0.
