In a new episode, Mallory (Rene Elise Goldsberry) and Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) stumble upon a section of a website (suspiciously similar to Reddit) full of She-Hulk haters under the heading “Cancel She-Hulk”, along with memes and images of the Woman -The Hulk and her co-star Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) with their eyes crossed out. Nikki convinces users to let her in by copying and pasting what men have told her online, accessing this treasure trove of hate. “Guilty of dressing like a man,” reads one of the memes on the site, which seems to be particularly fixated on outdated gender roles – demonstrating the types of comments that, indeed, the show usually receives online from these groups.
Sure enough, on Twitter, some people were already digging into the show just hours after the episode aired. Needless to say, however, this critique of a female-focused superhero series that puts the theme of female empowerment at the center of its narrative isn’t just unsurprising – it was entirely expected, and She-Hulk viewers should expect more of these digs. in upcoming episodes.
