Tech: 'Black Panther' is such an undeniable movie that even the critic for Milo Yiannopoulos' website is gushing about it
On Friday the publication from far right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, published a favorable review of 'Black Panther' that seems to be missing the point.
- On Friday, Dangerous, the website from far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, published a favorable review of "Black Panther."
- Though the review is positive, the reasoning behind it is strange.
- The reviewer compared the film's hero to Donald Trump, and the villain to "Black Lives Matter" activists.
On Friday, Dangerous, the website from far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, who got the boot from Breitbart a year ago after comments surfaced where he appeared to condone pedophilia, published a favorable review of "Black Panther."
Given the track record of Yiannopoulos and his followers — in 2016, Twitter banned Yiannopoulos for encouraging his followers to send racist tweets to "Saturday Night Live" cast member Leslie Jones — a positive review of the movie comes as a surprise.
And the reason behind it is predictably strange.
Reviewer Ian Miles Cheong enjoyed the film, and praised "Black Panther" for its message that "we are all one tribe." He also praised the film for depicting the villain as a "SJW Black Supremacist," and compared the film's hero to Donald Trump.
“If it wasn’t for the superpowers and science fiction landscape," Cheong wrote, "you’d almost forget you were watching a superhero movie. While there’s enough of the otherworldly to draw you in, it’s the characters at the heart of 'Black Panther' who drive the two-hour ride.”
But the review, which starts with an insult to "leftists" praising the film for its diversity, is definitely far from most people's take on "Black Panther," and why it's a powerful movie.
Cheong tweeted that "the hero is basically Black Trump" and that the villain is reflective of a Black Lives Matter activist:
