Hollywood is continuing to make famous characters and roles LGBTQ. The most recent is Velma Dinkley from the series Scooby-Doo. This trend is most popular among children’s media, so many viewers are not surprised.
Velma, the turtle-neck wearing brainiac has a huge crush on the new character Coco Diablo. It was revealed during a clip that was released from the new Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo! Film on Tuesday. Velma quivers and Coco touches her shoulder. She is speechless and big-eyed among, meeting Coco for the fest time.
Some fans took to social media to say that this is no surprise. Others rejoiced, while many were clearly annoyed at the revelation.
“They destroyed Scooby-Doo with this woke LGBTQIA nonsense. Just another attempt to indoctrinate children,” said one social media user.
Another social media user claimed that identity politics hijacked the franchise. One user said, “Why not make Velma black and disabled as well? Are they racist and ableist?”
