Mindy Kaling’s animated ‘VELMA’ series for HBO Max will depict the titular character being of East Asian descent.
It is also said that the series will be set in a world where Scooby-Doo & the Mystery Machine do not exist.
Y’all must not really be fans of scooby Doo bc it’s the way Velma has been portrayed as Asian, and Latina more than once throughout different versions for y’all to be fake upset about this???
Just say you’re racist so we can both move on https://t.co/9QlfwD8ADI
@ccarr1025@TheQuartering Like....there is a big difference between Captain AMERICA being from Europe, and a character from Scooby-Doo being a different race.
What about Velma's character means she HAS to be exclusively white? Hmm?
@WilliamDafuq The prevailing theory is they tried to pitch an original story about an East-Asian woman who plays detective - suits wouldn't greenlight it unless they threw an existing IP sticker on it. So now it's Velma the Cash Grab.... I guess? I feel like this loses every demo.
@ccarr1025@TheQuartering Wait WHAT?! How can you say that with a straight face? Lmfao.
Yeah dude. Having Captain America be from Europe is the exact same thing as making Velma an Asian character. Do you even hear yourself? Lmfao
And it's not 'assuming' his thoughts. It's clear and present.
@DiscussingFilm So they basically could have made this show about an original character, but decided to use the name Velma to pull in old school Scooby Doo fans, despite not ANY of the other characters showing up? Uuuuuuh..... https://t.co/Tf6VsOVG4G
Ya hubo un spin off de velma y dafne con las mismas caracteristicas ¿y adivinen que? ES UN MALDITO PEDAZO DE MIERDA QUE ES MAS ENTRETENIDO VER UNA PARED SECARSE QUE VER 2 MINUTOS ESA COSA https://t.co/Q8OnIIrYrV
@Romanticide Hay algo sobre como no va a haber ni perro ni van y que Velma va a ser de otro planeta/universo o algo así...
Weird, but then again, ya se unieron a KISS para salvar el cosmos en una oda totalmente Kirby-esca, so....
