There is a lot I could say about this article. One thing I will say is Moana was motivated by her grandmother. But yeah, sure. Let’s just ignore things so we can write an article that craps on movies to fit our narrative about how garbage Hollywood is.
I lived in a suite with two other girls my junior year. I’m Latina, my roommate was white, and my suitemate was African American. My suitemate and I had a lot of issues, and I couldn’t figure out why. My roommate would tell me how awful our suitemate was, making racist comments about her and saying our problems were because of her race. Turns out, my roommate was pitting my suitemate and I against each other, like she was trying to instigate a race war. She also told people I would use a vibrator when she was in the room (which is just stupid. If anything, why would I use something that makes noise with another person in the room?), that I had a crush on her, and a bunch of other messed up things that I don’t want to get into. It took us until the end of the semester to realize what was going on. My suitemate and I teamed up, confronted her, and shut her game down. She moved out a week early. Never heard from her again. When we asked her why she did it, her only response was to shrug and say “I dunno. It was fun.” Total sociopath.
