Kristen Wiig ‘bummed out’ by ‘Ghostbusters’ backlash.

Kristen Wiig has said she was taken by surprise after online trolls mounted a campaign against the new female-fronted remake of cult 80s favourite Ghostbusters.The decision to reimagine the series with an all female-led cast – which features Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Jillian Holtzmann – has irked some fans of the series, but the Bridesmaids star has said that the stir has not shocked her. “Some people said some really not nice things about the fact that there were women. We’re really honouring those movies.” In March, the new Ghostbusters director Paul Feig, who also directed Wiig and McCarthy in Bridesmaids, described criticism of the remake as “some of the most vile, misogynistic shit I’ve ever seen in my life”. Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore in the 1984 version of the film, found himself embroiled in the controversy in 2014, after calling the remake “a bad idea”.
