Seth Rogen Getting Destroyed For Making April O’Neil FAT And Black In New TMNT Movie

Nowadays, it appears that no picture is immune to reaction, which is often the case with recent remakes. Consider the reaction to the trailers for the impending live-action remakes of The Little Mermaid (2023) and Peter Pan and Wendy (2023). Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem (2023) is the next to endure the trolls’ wrath.

The Ninja Turtles’ human buddy and reporter April O’Neil (voiced by Ayo Edebiri) is African-American, as revealed in the Mutant Mayhem teaser. Meanwhile, a few additional characters have had their genders switched, albeit they do not feature in the teaser.

While this isn’t the first time April has been shown as African-American, with the animated program Rise of the TMNT (2018) being the first, a lot of YouTubers and Twitter users are now criticizing the film.

Here’s what some are saying online about this very controversial decision by Rogen:
