The Lorax (2012) Ironic Fandom and Hatedom
The Lorax is a 2012 American CGI-animated film made by Illumination Entertainment and Universal Entertainment. It's based on the Dr. Seuss book of the same name while also having elements that were not present in the original book. Just like the book, the film talks about the titular Lorax who confronts a woodcutter named the Once-ler while also bringing in symbolism to the environmental issues. The film, however, does expand the story of the Once-ler, The Lorax and the unnamed boy who is now named Ted Wiggins. The film also brings in new characters such as Audrey, Grandma Norma, Mayor O'Hare and many others. While the film did had mixed reviews, it did do well at the box office. It also spawned an ironic fandom and a hideous hatedom as well.
Why They're Hazardous To The Internet Environment
- They treat the film as if it was a religion.
- They also exalt the Once-ler and Mayor O'Hare as if they were incarnations of Jesus Christ.
- The Once-ler is featured in nonsensical ships as well. For example, he tends to be shipped with Audrey and characters from other franchises, such as Shrek from Shrek.
- Many fangirls are also obsessed with the Once-ler.
- They chopped down The Meme Community by overusing memes taken from the film, such as the songs "Let it Grow" and "How Bad Can I Be".
- They overuse this meme as well.
- They even think that The Lorax is the best film ever simply because of the memes that originated from it, which is the only thing that many of them watch the film for. Memes don't make a film far superior to others, you know?
- Some of the memes they make are either offensive, overused, just stupid, or even TOO FAR, such as this one claiming that one of the minor characters looks like Adolf Hitler.
- They even do the "You greedy dirtbag!" quote too.
- Some offensive memes on Twitter to innocent people.
- Many don't even realize that the film was based on the aforementioned Dr. Seuss book. Some don't even care about the book at all because it's not like the film according to them.
- They hate the film for stupid reasons, such as:
- Because Illumination Entertainment worked on the film. Why hate on a film just because of a company?
- Because of some characters, such as the Once-ler's family and the singing fishes.
- Because of the memes. Just because a film spawned memes doesn't make it terrible.
- They whack on the people who like the film.
- Many of them are nostalgiatards who are obsessed with the Dr. Seuss books.
- They draw uninspiring Hate Art out of the film, such as this one.
- This Orange Media Network user believes that the film is sexist. Huh?
- Most of them can at least respect opinions of people who hate the film.
- Some of the memes they make can be good and funny.
- Some of them make great fanart and fanfictions.
- Some of them actually care about the Dr. Seuss book, and are Dr. Seuss fans in general.
- Some of them are mature and can respect opinions of people who like the film.
- Not all of them hate Illumination Entertainment.
- Not all of them are obsessed with the Dr. Seuss books either.
- They have a point about possible flaws of the film.
- They also have a point about the fanboys. They're toxic after all.
