People are trying to ban 'Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer'

But why exactly do they want it banned?...

When we think of Christmas we generally think of Christmas trees, lots of food, lots of gifts and of course the bringer of the gifts, Santa and his reindeer.

It seems though, one reindeer in particular is not so popular or at least the film version of him isn't.

Many have voiced their concern about the 1964 classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as they think it is problematic and would like to see it banned.

Some feel that the film makes like of bullying with one Twitter users going so far as to say;


"Yearly reminder that #Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is a parable on racism & homophobia w/ Santa as a bigoted exploitative."

While many have criticised the Christmas movie, others think it's all an over reaction and it's just simply retelling the story of how Rudolph came to save Christmas.

Personally I've never seen Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer but even in songs it alludes to the other reindeer teasing Rudolph by 'always laughing and calling him name' so I would assume the film touches on this too.

Many movies from around the same era, most recently Disney, have begun putting disclaimers at the beginning of certain movies rather than banning them so maybe the creators of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will do the same.
