Just to prove that social justice warriors are some of the most horrid denizens of the first world, they decided to up the ante again after the passing of a great man.
Marvel head and legendary comic book writer Stan Lee passed away on Monday at the age of 95. Billions of people from all stripes enjoyed his work, and what’s more, he was just an all around good person. He let people know that there was something super about them too, no matter who or what they were.
In fact, it’s partly the message he was getting across when he created the X-Men.
However, SJWs don’t care that Stan Lee brought joy, self-confidence, and role models to the people for decades. What they care about is that he didn’t live up to their impossible standards, and thus, was a horrible human being.
One woman, going by the Twitter handle @xfrce, tweeted that Lee was “racist, homophobic, and was accused of sexual harassment multiple times,” but added that he didn’t deserve to die.
After receiving a decent amount of backlash for her comments, she has since switched her account to protected. This account wouldn’t be the only one to immediately regret insulting a dead hero.
Some, however, have still kept their insults to Lee well and active.
Yes but Stan Lee also sexually assaulted a number of women, ripped off/plagiarized his colleagues & was homophobic. Let's recognize that he was a complicated & problematic person whilst celebrating his life & work at the v least https://t.co/HZyvIeC9OL

The accusations come from Lee’s denial of social justice warrior demands that existing comic book characters be rewritten so that they’re anything but white, straight, etc. Lee denied that this needed to happen, and recommended characters stay as originally written, but added that new characters could and should be created to fit different lifestyles.
“It has nothing to do with being anti-gay, or anti-black, or anti-Latino, or anything like that,” Lee said according to comicbook.news. “Latino characters should stay Latino. The Black Panther should certainly not be Swiss. I just see no reason to change that which has already been established when it’s so easy to add new characters. I say create new characters the way you want to. Hell, I’ll do it myself.”
Lee was on board with creating the characters SJWs wanted to see, but being told “no” was, as usual, enough to send the social justice community into a tantrum. They wanted current characters washed with identity politics, but Lee created these characters with specific traits in mind, and his audience grew up with these characters as parts of their lives. They were role models and best friends. Suddenly changing them into different people would be a tragedy.
As a result, Lee was accused of every “ist” and “phobe” in the book, and the SJW’s have held onto that grudge, and let people know they still held it after his passing.
The thing is, Lee was far from racist or homophobic. In fact, Lee is known to speak out against racism as he did in this article years ago.
SJWs are the worst kind of people.
