Oops! Alabama Drive-In That Banned ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Scheduled a Drag Film
An Alabama drive-in movie theater that banned Beauty and the Beast for being too gay unknowingly scheduled a drag film. Whoops!
The Henagar Drive-In announced a while back that it would refuse to screen Beauty and the Beast because of its gay character LeFou. On Facebook, the owners wrote, “If we can not take our 11-year-old granddaughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it.”
Evidently, the Henagar Drive-In’s owners totally can let their grandkids watch Fierce, an indie movie about the drag community, because they added it to their schedule.
Owner Carol Laney told TMZ she approved Fierce because she thought it was a Game of Thrones-type thing based on the poster. Because it’s totally fine to let your grandchildren watch Game of Thrones, apparently.
Once Laney found out Fierce was about drag queens rather than good old-fashioned rape and dragon murder, she dropped the movie from the schedule.
