With over 11 million followers across all social media, no one in golf has the reach that Paige Spiranac does. The social media sensation uses her influence to voice her thoughts and opinions. She often speaks out about any issue that she thinks sets back women’s advancement in society. Two year ago, she even lashed out at a cartoon movie. Spiranac found ‘The Space Jam’ movie sequel offensive for how it showed Lola Bunny.Paige Spiranac lashes out at the second Space Jam movie
Back in 2021, Spiranac blew her top about, ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy,’ which starred NBA great, LeBron James. The golf beauty claimed that director Malcolm Lee had desexualized Lola, the female bunny, in the film. “I took so much offence to this,” she said, as per the Daily Star.Spiranac suggested that Lee had changed the entire look of the bold and sexy Lola Bunny and made her more masculine to depict strength. She stated, “The director wanted her to be less sexy and be seen as more strong.”Lee, on the other hand, clapped back at everyone who accused him of talking away Lola’s “femininity.” He said, “[It is] important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters.” But the social media icon didn’t agree with Lee’s methods. She stated that just taking away all her femininity to make her seem tougher was wrong.

Furiously, the blonde beauty said, “She has no curves and her outfit is long basketball shorts… “They’re basically insinuating that you can’t be sexy and also strong.” She said that masculinity didn’t define strength and that Lee had suggested that it did through his move.Paige also added that Lee, “by taking the b**bs off Lola Bunny,” sent the wrong message, especially to large-breasted women. It portrayed that women couldn’t be proud of their “body or curves.” Maxim’s 2022 Sexiest Woman Alive added, “I hated that.”
The ex-pro golfer claimed to certainly not like what the new Lola Bunny represented. She stated, “All women can be strong and sexy and empowered in their own way.” She was deeply hurt and offended that they had gone on to do that to a cartoon, and she was not impressed with the precedent it set for women athletes.Do you believe the social beauty was correct about the director’s attempts to make Lola appear stronger being offensive?
