Incel is a term that was adopted in the ‘90s by an online subgroup of self-professed “involuntary celibate” men. Over time, some radicalized members of the incel community have formed an ideology that promotes violence. Elliot Rodger self-identified as an incel before he killed six people near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2014. And James Holmes, the man who opened fire in a crowded movie theater in 2012 has become a bit of a hero to the incel community. It’s often been repeated that Holmes was inspired by the Joker, a claim that primarily rests on statements the killer reportedly made to police after the fact in which he said he “was the Joker.” Speaking with the Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Oates, Aurora’s chief of police at the time, said that “there is no evidence” the shooter ever said that.
In the alert emailed to service members, Army officials claimed that incels “also idolize the Joker character, the violent clown from the Batman series, admiring his depiction as a man who must pretend to be happy, but eventually fights back against bullies.”

Having seen the movie I can see why conservatives are upset, they are equally upset and tortured by a teenage Swedish girl.
Most anything upsets conservatives, hey trannies exist.
Haven't seen a Socialist upset over the movie.
Have seen lazy people compare it to Taxi Driver presumably because de Niro?
Good film, a brooding look at a super-villain with a Deadpool rating.
Considering the films by the guy behind Old School and other comedies plus, its about the Joker its not that funny.
Violence wise, it's not really all that. It's not A Serbian Film, it's not really Deadpool there's around four scenes with blood squibs in three of them.
Capitalists are greedy and protect themselves through the media, truth, but the reason conservatives are upset, they don't like the truth. Joker even states he's not political but, conservatives that haven't watched the film but outraged (again) by headlines wouldn't know that.
Worth seeing for the subtle twists.
The (far) rights outrage will see tickets sales boom, Captain Marvel and Black Panther says hi, which probably means a sequel of sorts is in the pipeline.
