In multiple media reports it appears after BBC1 ran the movie grease, then people took to twitter to complain.
“Sorry but ‘Grease’ sucks on so many levels. No plot. Nothing interesting happens. And the message is pure misogyny,” said one user.
The drive-in scene where Sandy and Danny watch a movie together was criticized for being “rapey” according to a newshub article. “it didn’t age well.”
A quick search of #grease now on twitter finds many defenders. Saying the story has to be taken in context of the time.
“You can’t change the past but you can shape the future. People are trying to ban #Grease ?? Get out of here. It was a different time. Don’t like it? Don’t watch it,” said one of the defenders.
So where do we go from here, Muppets are now considered “offensive content” by Disney and people want to ban movies like Grease. In the book 1984 by George Orwell, scrubbing our past is written about. “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past,” is one of the most famous lines from the book.
