These Movie Characters Toxic and Shouldn’t Be Glorified

BuzzFeed asked its readers to list movie characters that shouldn’t be glorified because they’re actually toxic or controversial.  Here are 10:

1.  Dumbledore from the “Harry Potter” series.  “He manipulated and used people, even literal children, especially poor Harry.  Left him in an abusive home for the ‘greater good.'”

2.  Ferris Bueller from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.  “He’s a slimy, manipulative liar and con artist.  Probably went on to work at Enron.  He is a perfect symbol of everything that went wrong with America.”

3.  Maui from “Moana”.  “He straight-up doomed the world for selfish reasons and attempted to murder a child on several occasions.”

4.  The Phantom from “The Phantom of the Opera”.  “He’s not romantic.  He’s a creep.”

5.  Uncle Rico from “Napoleon Dynamite”.  “He’s hilarious and accurate to somebody each of us knows, but he definitely is a bad person.  A loser, mostly. Living in the past, trying to make money by manipulating emotions.”

6.  Tyler Durden from “Fight Club”.  “He’s a misogynistic, controlling, manipulative sociopath.”

7.  Daniel Hillard (Mrs. Doubtfire) from “Mrs. Doubtfire”.  “If you think about the story with even an ounce of depth, his character is basically a nightmare stalker ex.”

8.  Allie from “The Notebook”.  “Allie is just as toxic as Noah.  She hit him and screamed at him violently.  If he did that, people would very much call it out.”

9.  Christian Grey from “Fifty Shades of Grey”.  “Just the abuse and the non-consensual stuff he did to [Anastasia].  If he wasn’t rich and beautiful, that story would be a crime one.”

10.  Tony Montana from “Scarface”.  “He isn’t a hero.  He betrayed everybody close to him in his life.  His best friend, sister, and wife all came second to power, greed, and materialism.”
