Critics say 'Black Panther' comes up short for excluding queer romance

Pat Gray Unleashed

Marvel's box office hit "Black Panther" is once again in the throes of yet another controversy. This time, critics on the left claim the film lacks in diversity for not including a lesbian couple according to Pink News.

In an article titled, "Black Panther screenwriter opens up about the film’s deleted lesbian romance," the writer calls attention to Danai Gurira’s Okoye and Florence Kasumba’s Ayo relationship, two female characters.

Apparently, failure to create a lesbian script for the two female warriors was sparked by a trending hashtag on Twitter "#LetAyoHaveAGirlfriend, similar to the #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend."

Pat wasn't buying their argument and wondered why representation is ruining the enjoyment.
