At this point, we’re all incredibly familiar with the army of angry Ghostbusters fans enraged by the fact that the Paul Feig-directed reboot of the film will be fronted by four women, but this latest Instagram may throw that whole crew over the edge. Because it looks like it’s not just Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon involved in this film, but rather a whole host of ladies are doing the dirty work—if McCarthy’s latest Instagram post is to be believed.
I mean just look at them all! That’s so many women! A litany of ladies! A veritable smorgasbord of broads! How could any work possibly get done on a set with that many periods happening? I mean think about it scientifically: at any given time there’s probably at least four of them on their periods at once. Gosh, I bet they all sync up their flows, too—like some sort of evil lady witchcraft!
And they’re not just doing hair and make-up and costumes if you look at the photo: some of them are doing stunts! And script work! And special effects! And general PA ballyhoo! What is happening to the universe right now, you guys?! Is there a tear in the fabric of all of space and time? Somebody better call future Time Lord to be, Hayley Atwell (wink wink nudge nudge aaaahahahaha!) to figure this one out. It’s all feeling very …wibbly wobbly (and I don’t mean because of boobs but—heh heh, b00bz), don’t you think?
The girl power is too strong! We must fight it with the fire of 10,000 vengeful purists in order to restore the natural balance of the universe! THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR TOO FAST YOU GUYS. IT’S SERIOUS NOW.
How are you going to take arms and join the fight against lady ‘busters? Leave your plans in the comments.
