I chose this one because it fits our Scooby theme, though he’s done a number of videos on the Twitter Art “Fixing” community, but also this is insulting to the original artist. And yes, I know I posted this.
The difference is this isn’t fan art, it’s promo art for My Adventures With Superman, a show I’ve heard nothing about since the teaser dropped, that turned Lois and Jimmy into alternate races. (Also for some reason Lois is a grown-up Lutz from The Owl House while Jimmy is based on the CW Supergirl version before he went bald.) What happens in the video is someone taking fan art of one show and reworking it into characters from a different show while calling the fan artist racist. I remember hearing some girl decided to draw the original 1980s version of Frosta from Princess Of Power, based on Nordic people, and the “good white people” yelled at the poor kid for race swapping because they only care about the 2010s Princesses Of Power version based on the Inuit, swapping one stereotype for another. Mykel also didn’t put his own watermark on it hoping someone would see his first and attack the actual original artist (my theory anyway). Had the fan artist done a piece based on HBO Max’s ethic cosplayers but made them white that would be one thing but it’s based on classic Scooby-Doo with Freddie wearing his What’s New Scooby-Doo outfit. A new movie with the classic take dropped this very month, where Velma is now a lesbian because frumpy turtlenecks are queer coding or something.
It’s strange that the supposed pro-diversity crowd seems to be going out of their way to make diversity look like a bad thing. I guess that’s what happens when you only look at the surface of people because trying to understand them AS people is too much like work.
