Sofia Carson is defending her new movie Purple Hearts despite the backlash it's been receiving.
She stars as Cassie, a singer-songwriter who marries Luke, a Marine, to get healthcare benefits after being diagnosed with diabetes.
The movie came out on Netflix two weeks ago and it's since received a lot of backlash.
wait there’s a netflix “rom com” about a type one diabetic who can’t afford her insulin so she marrys a man in the military for his health insurance benefits 😭😭 baby that’s a horror movie omg
People have complained that the movie was racist, promoting anti-Arab sentiments, and it was just military propaganda.
@FilmUpdates @SofiaCarson @nickgalitzine Purple hearts is us military propaganda that uses the invasion & deaths of 1.2 million iraqis as a romcomNot to mention him defending his racist friend & telling her to sit down & stop it when she called him out after he was cheering with ”hunting down some goddamm Arabs” 🤌🏻
i don't get the hype in the movie "purple hearts." clearly a straight up military propaganda + the blatant racism in it. a latina changing her beliefs just to be with a white military racist guy. enemies to lovers only work in books.
