If this is the future of Pixar, I'll have to neglect them

Not just rude, but I think this kind of white male stereotyping is horribly toxic.

I cant believe this is real

Its a waste of your time. Shame too. Pixar makes great animation but this felt... off. Thats to say the least.

How is this PG??!! There is swearing, vulgar jokes, etc. Pixar needs to rethink the direction it's heading! #madmom

Really, Pixar?

My family and I sat down to watch this Pixar short (because Pixar is usually fantastic), but we had to shut it off about halfway through. I was first put off by the heavy-handed "toxic masculinity" message it was pushing, but we kept watching. Then they started in on the crude jokes. The first one made me blink, and I just thought to myself "That seems a little offensive for a Pixar short." Then they threw out the next one. "Why are they putting these in a kids' cartoon?" I thought. Finally, they lead character yells out a curse word...and we were done. I shut it off. I couldn't believe that Disney would allow Pixar to release something like this on their streaming channel. And why would Pixar ever make this kind of content. Say what you will about John Lasseter, but I can't imagine he would let something like this be made under the Pixar banner (this was the first project done without him at Pixar).

Sexist, Hypocritical and Unrealistic

If there was a company like BRO Capital, it would be destroyed in social media and may even be charged with a crime or two.

What this film IS a good depiction of is how quick most liberals are to revert to racism and sexism themselves in order to support their own idiotic fantasies surrounding gender politics. For example ... Is it better to stereotype every single male in the cartoon as being a white frat boy with identical hair cuts and suits just to complain that women are disadvantaged in the workplace? Even when they're not? This cartoon is at least 50 years too late for the corny political message it's trying to sell and equality isn't about trashing white guys, it's about putting everyone on the same level, no one being disadvantaged or put on a pedestal. Unfortunately this film bags on men just to shine a light on women. Something that probably won't be looked favorably upon in the future. Sexism is sexism and racism is racism, after all, no matter who is the target of the stereotypes.

Kind of reminds of how Google got sued for paying women more than men in order to prove that they don't have a wage gap at their company. They also got sued for giving sign-on bonuses to minorities in an effort to create more racial diversity among their employees. This is a lot like that. A myopic, bigoted and misguided effort by liberal media to cater to the teenage voices they hear on social media. Voices that know and understand very little about the real world around them as opposed to the social media fantasy world that they overindulge in on a daily basis.
