The 11 Best Twitter Reactions to James Cameron's 'Wonder Woman' Criticism

"Is this the same James Cameron who routinely polled his all-male crew to ensure a lady alien was f*ckable?"

Last night, James Cameron blessed us with his unsolicited opinion about Wonder Woman, which he considers to be "a step backwards," because "she's an objectified icon, and it's just male Hollywood doing the same old thing!"

Setting aside the irony of Patty Jenkins—that rare example of a female director working in the blockbuster space—being called part of "male Hollywood" by a man who defines it, Cameron's mansplaining comments are also entirely self-serving, since he segued right into patting himself on the back for his own strong female character, Sarah Connor. Because there is only room for one type of female strength, and that is the type that James Cameron approves of.
