‘Scooby Doo’ movie showing fat Daphne sparks outrage


Lawful neutral

Conversations about fat-shaming and negative body stereotypes are surrounding the latest movie adventure for the crime-solving cartoon gang.

Jinkies! The long-running "Scooby Doo" cartoon is getting some negative attention for its newest movie storyline.

"Scooby Doo! Frankencreepy," which was released direct to DVD on Tuesday, has some parents concerned for their kids over more than just a scary monster. The latest plot sees the famous crime-solving gang subject to each of their worst nightmares in the form of a curse by the Frankencreep monster. For Daphne, a "curse" means ballooning from her slender size 2 to a "size 8."

That cartoon looks to be a liiiiitle bigger than a size 8.

Daphne's been portrayed as a vain little ninny since day 1. So what if getting fat is her nightmare. I'm not a ninny, but that's my realistic nightmare too :shrug:
