Movie title changed to Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey because character was unrecognisable.
Margot Robbie, Harley Quinn, had some some major design changes and she now reminds people a lot of the serial offender, Jimmy Savile, and they are freaked out.
Director, Cathy Yan, made an effort to desexualise the popular female villain and make her more of an every woman’s type of hero by freeing her from her abusive boyfriend, Joker, and making her dress more conservatively… but there was a huge oversight in design and people aren’t happy.
Margot Robbie’s new look reminds people of serial sex offender and kiddie fiddler, Jimmy Savile. Many even think that the costume design may have been inspired by the late disgraced talk show host.
Sir James Wilson Vincent Savile OBE KCSG was an English DJ, television and radio personality who hosted BBC shows including Top of the Pops and Jim’ll Fix It. He raised an estimated AUD$78 million for charities and, during his lifetime, was widely praised for his personal qualities and as a fund-raiser.
However, serious allegations of his abuse of minors was widely ignored and covered up until he passed in 2011.
It is now common knowledge that Jimmy Savile, in fact, did sexually abuse hundreds of women and children, ranging from the age of 2 to 75, at the pique of his career.
Investigators now believe the late Top of the Pops host preyed on at least 500 vulnerable victims, some as young as two years old, at institutions including the BBC’s broadcasting studios, 14 hospitals and 20 children’s hospitals across England.
So, naturally, people are a bit freaked out with the resemblance that Cathy Yan’s new Harley Quinn has to Jimmy Savile, but those who criticise the new look are being called ‘sick perverts’.
#BirdsOfPrey wasn’t appealing enough for some sick perverts because Margot Robbie and the girls didn’t wear slutty costumes. If you want to jerk off to women in films pornhub is free my dude.— Films to Films (@FilmstoFilms_) February 9, 2020
Harley Quinn is almost unrecognisable with her new looks so shortly after the film released Warner Bros. officially changed the name from Birds of Prey to Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.
Despite an early flow of positive reviews Birds of Prey is suffering at the box office barely pulling in USD$33 million on it’s opening weekend. It’s the worst performing DC comic book movie since “Jonah Hex” in 2011.
