HBO and the actress Mindy KalingThe “Scooby Doo” spin-off series “Velma” added even more controversial content to its ensemble in its latest episode, this time treating pedophilia as a joke.

During the fourth episode, titled “Velma Makes a List”, the new series makes multiple jokes about children in a sexual way. The first involves the mayor of the local town lusting after attractive teenage girls in high school, and the other involves Velma’s character’s impression of young boys and their talent for drawing male genitalia.

After Velma is tasked with thwarting a local killer who appears to only target pretty high school girls, the town’s middle-aged mayor suggests that she rank the hottest girls in her school and help them be less attractive to save their lives.

HBO’s “Scooby-Doo” movie Velma has been raved by critics since its debut earlier this month.

Although, the sheriff’s salivating reaction to Velma’s transformation shows that she has failed in her mission, and gives Velma viewers the uncomfortable sight of a middle-aged white man lusting after underage girls.

Speaking to the sheriff and sheriff during the reveal, Velma says, “Mayor Dave, Sheriff Cogburn, I want you to remember this moment. We’ve been telling girls for so long that pain is beauty. Well, today you’ll see those things so painfully. Beautiful girls turn out ‘damn’ to “eh…”

As noted before newsOnce Velma reveals the girls, who appear to have not changed their appearance in any way, the mayor says, “Oh, they’re so hot. Dad likes… wait. You were supposed to do the opposite. What h—, movie?

In another scene from the same episode, Velma tries to make a comment about her friend’s sexism but makes a strange statement about young children and genitals.

She says, “Our whole life, girls are told by guys there’s a right way to feel sexy, and I’m not. Guys even teach us to be ashamed of our bodies. Every little kid knows how to draw a penis, but get a little kid to draw a vulva, and what happens?” Norville, “Do you go to jail?” that says, “Exactly.”

The R-rated humor is the latest stunt from the HBO animated series, which has already been the subject of several headlines for flipping the beloved “Scooby-Doo” mystery gang concept on its head in an effort to appeal to modern audiences.

The show has been criticized for its over-the-top awakening themes. For example, it has swapped races between several of the main characters, most notably Shaggy, who is now an African-American man named “Norville”. It also features lesbian scenes between the titular character, who is now of Asian/Pacific Islander descent, and Daphne, who is now half Asian and half white.

In addition, the series devotes story beats to portraying former beloved character Fred as a wealthy white man who is taken down because of his privilege.

As previously reported by Fox News Digital, “Velma” also features Cut off limbsOne of the main characters goes to a strip club with her father, and two teenage boys are graduating from their high school.

These elements were added to the show, which critics raved about. Fox noted, “Although the critics’ reviews are poor, the audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is even worse, with most viewers giving it half a star (out of five). One viewer called it “extremely insulting to the Scooby-Doo fan base.” Another noted, “Too current year. This culture is very bad.”

The reviews were so bad that some wondered if the show was a plot to upset right-wingers. Forbes contributor Paul Tassi mention this ideahe writes, “A movie so bad in fact, it spews out conspiracy theories that made creator Mindy Kaling what is essentially a parody of what right-wing thinks left-wing comedies are.”

Daily Mail Even “Velma” is “the third worst rated TV show in IMBD history, airing only four episodes of its first season.”

Fox News Digital spoke to conservative Hollywood critic and entertainment critic Christian Tutu about why creators would push the evil Scooby-Doo game, only for it to be slammed by audiences. He said, “Hollywood entertainers do not appreciate the frustration many feel about these awakening improvements. In their circles, diversity and social justice are vital tools in their storytelling repertoires.”

He said, “What’s most interesting is that when confronted with angry viewers, the response is often to double down and slam them as racist, sexist, etc. We’ve seen this with the backlash against ‘The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power’ on Amazon Prime.”

Although Toto admits that “audiences, in turn, often overreact. They’re angry not just at one show but at the cultural landscape that drives these reboots. So they’ve criticized properties like ‘Velma’ by slamming them on TV review sites.” And social media. The media.”
