It’s a Christmas classic, but many Twitter users found Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer "problematic" after Tuesday night's airing on CBS.
Fans flooded the site to criticize the children's movie, saying the story has some disturbing and sad moments.
Here's what some of the haters had to say:
- "Donner just told Rudolph that self respect was more important than his son breathing. Somebody call the cops to their cave immediately."
- "#RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer teaching kids since 1964 that your peers will only accept your differences if you can provide them with some kind of service."
- "Let it be known that the toy bird that can’t fly gets murdered by one of Santa’s elves during the end credits of #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer."
- "Has anyone else noticed that within the first five minutes of #RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer two characters get bullied?
