Animated kids movie Sing is accused of racism because its gorilla characters are criminals who like hip hop and are sent to prison

Not sure what the problem is.  Is the problem that gorillas look like someone we know?  Odd that they don't say that below

Sing, Universal Pictures’ 3D computer-animated music comedy film which was released in theaters last week, is being accused of perpetuating racial stereotypes because the film’s plot line includes gorillas who are sent to prison for criminal activity.

A number of Twitter users noted that the film, which features the voices of Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, conjures up uncomfortable stereotypes about black people.

One of the protagonists, Johnny, is a gorilla who aspires to be a hip-hop singer but is burdened by his father, who at one point in the film is in prison for running a gang, according to Heatstreet.

Seeking to pursue his dream of making it as a musician, Johnny betrays his father by abandoning him during a robbery, leading to his dad’s incarceration.

Having gorillas engaged in criminal behavior and becoming hip hop singers crossed the line for some people, who accuse the film in trading in classic, racist tropes.

'Sing looks like a cute movie but I can't get past the fact that the gorillas are gang members in jail,' one Twitter user wrote.

It seems that some of the perpetually offended think that gorillas look like black people.

Liberals find anything that dont meet their narrow minded little standards as offensive How about depicting liberals as big dull witted jackases with their eyes both looking at one aother and the simpleton look on their faces
