‘Controversial’ No Time To Die Scene Leaves Bond Fans Feeling Confused & Scared
What’s the ultimate test of your masculinity? While previous generations might have answered that question with ‘hunting’, ‘war’ or – worse – ‘American football’, in 2021 you might argue the ultimate test of masculinity is sitting on the back of a motorbike.
Whether you think this is a travesty for the iconic 007 institution, or whether you think anyone complaining about it must be a narrow-minded fossil insecure in their own masculinity (or whether you kind of feel a pang of both), what’s beyond debate is that the following photo, recently posted to Instagram by various fan page accounts, is sure to spark quite the debate among Bond fans.
@springhousebureau shared Dove’s image too, captioning it: “New set photo – #danielcraig and #lashanalynch riding a Royal Alloy GT125 Scooter in Port Antonio.
Responses included “lol” and laughing emojis.
The most aggrieved commenters to be found, however, are hanging out under @commander_james_bond_’s repost of the photo, making such remarks as: “Some men don’t like being taken for a ride,” “I don’t know why I think it’s funny,” and “Bond riding B*tch!”
Others wrote: “LITERALLY taking a ‘backseat’ to his eventual / inevitable female replacement haha…” and “Where is James Bond in this picture ?”
This isn’t the first time fans have been upset by the Bond being in a passenger seat.
it rubs me the wrong way that bond isn’t the one flying the plane. rubbed me the wrong way the moment I watched first trailer.
