    There's Going To Be A Different Lola Bunny Look In "Space Jam 2," And The Internet Had Many Opinions

    Lotta talk about a rabbit with boobs.

    If you've seen Space Jam, you'll likely remember that the character design of Lola Bunny was a little, for lack of a better term, horny.

    @Spacejam

    Having watched this movie for the first time at the spritely age of 23, I was very confused — but I digress.

    Well, because we are in the age of '90s remakes and sequels, there's going to be Space Jam: A New Legacy — featuring a new Lola Bunny look.

    The original Lola Bunny wearing a midriff-baring basketball jersey, eyeshadow, and her ears pulled into a ponytail while standing next to Bugs Bunny on the basketball court

    Director Malcolm D. Lee told Entertainment Weekly he was surprised by the original "very sexualized" Lola Bunny. "This is 2021," he continued. "It's important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters."

    Lola Bunny returns like you haven't seen her before in @SpaceJamMovie! https://t.co/OThoEU3AyA

    Some people weren't into the redesign:

    I don’t care that Lola Bunny is dressed less sexy in Space Jam 2 but I am unbelievably exhausted by the idea that the way you communicate that a female character is to be taken seriously is by removing her boobs

    I hate to split hares here (get it?), but listen. Desexualizing Lola Bunny by giving her more standard athletic gear? That's a choice. But you can't tell me that the Lola on the right appears stronger or more capable than the Lola on the left. Sexy does not equal less capable. https://t.co/OYrugua2De

    It's worth noting that the image on the left here is reportedly fan art.

    Not complaining about the Lola bunny situation bc I want to fuck a cartoon rabbit, I just don’t understand why every curvy character has to be redesigned in loose clothing. She wasn’t even lewd or inappropriate at all to begin with. Let thicc characters wear tight clothes pls.

    They're de-bimbofying Lola Bunny in the new movie...

    There were also some rather gross tweets that I'm not going to include!!!

    While others found the situation hilarious:

    first they take Lola Bunny’s breasts, what’s next? Elmo’s pendulous red cock and balls?

    Will Space Jam 2 take the Sonic Movie approach and bow to fan pressure, delaying production a year & forcing animators to crunch to make Lola Bunny's design much much hornier

    And some just decided to sit this one out:
