HuffPost, a liberal news site, was lampooned after saying Christmas classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was seriously problematic over claims that it features sexism and bullying.
Viewers are noticing the tale may not be so jolly after all, the outlets video said. And theyre sharing their observations online.
Among those observations was the suggestion that the TV classic was a story about racism and homophobia, while calling Santa Claus abusive and bigoted.
Yearly reminder that #Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a parable on racism & homophobia w/Santa as a bigoted exploitative prick, read one comment shared by HuffPost. Santas operation is an HR nightmare and in serious need of diversity and inclusion training. #Rudolph, read another. ..."
President Trumps son Donald Trump Jr. weighed in on the topic, tweeting Liberalism is a disease.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer isnt the first classic cartoon that was decried as problematic today.

As a kid I looked forward to that show every year. You’d have to be a completely joyless, angry, miserable pile of poo to by offended by it.
....just another attack on the American culture and history...typically
Liberals are mentally disturbed....
In other words, a typical liberal.
That's what liberals are. If ANYONE is having fun and enjoying themselves and not bothering anyone else, THEY HAVE TO PUT A STOP TO IT...................
there is not a movie or tv show ever that had no possible sexism or bullying in the eyes of these people if they really wanted to be honest with themselves.
The left are obsessed over sexism and bullying and race because they can’t face the real issues that need to be addressed aka cover up.
They have nothing to offer except whining and self pity snow flakes are of no value.
The classic definition of a modern day liberal.
Cruise is a space cadet himself.
Curious at what their review of Blazing Saddles would be.
Peaceful coexistence with these people is not possible. We need to stop pretending that it is.
“Youd have to be a completely joyless, angry, miserable pile of poo to by offended by it.”
You mean a liberal?
As an aside, Rudolph was written by a Jewish guy working for (I think) Macy’s or some other store. It was version of his wish-fulfillment story (adapted to reindeer) of his childhood day dream of fitting in as a Jewish guy in a gentile world by becoming a star athlete (in the author’s case, baseball) and thereby getting the girl he had a crush on.
In other words, a pretty typical teenage angst story, which everyone has, and so everyone can relate to.
His brother (or some other relative) adapted it to music and put in on the screen.
In the “Grinch” the Whos in Whoville are a racially homogenous apartheid state who have excluded the Grinch solely out of racist animosity. So he is totally justified in sabotaging their festivities in the name of social justice.
The waaambulance is on its way!
