Reactions to the new Ghostbusters pics are incredibly sexist (PHOTOS)

The new pics — which feature Ghostbusters cast members Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon kitted up in signature khaki jumpsuits and proton packs just like their predecessors Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson in the original movie — show the fearsome foursome looking totally badass. Sadly, though, the Internet trolls were out in force to rain misogynistic crap all over the movie.

Of course, this is far from the first time people have reacted to the reboot with abject misogyny. Cast member Kristen Wiig addressed it in an October interview with the Los Angeles Times.

“The fact there was so much controversy because we were women was surprising to me,” she said. “Some people said some really not nice things about the fact that there were women… it just really bummed me out. We’re really honoring those movies.”

Ghostbusters director Paul Feig vented his frustration, as well. “I just don’t understand why it’s ever an issue anymore,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I’ve promoted both Bridesmaids and The Heat and myself and my cast are still hit constantly with the question, ‘Will this answer the question of whether women can be funny?’ I really cannot believe we’re still having this conversation.”

Do you think the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters is going to be awesome or awful? Sound off in the comments section below.
