‘Tomb Raider’ Fans Slam YouTuber Who Body-Shamed The New Lara Croft
Some think Alicia Vikander doesn’t stack up.
Critics are impressed with Swedish actress Alicia Vikander‘s take on Lara Croft, even if some are not so hot on the movie itself. They say her subtle approach offers the over-the-top spectacle some realism.
But one lame YouTuber (that’s someone who makes YouTube videos from his bedroom for a living) has criticized the casting of Vikander—not for her acting chops or accent but rather for her body.
TJ Kirk, aka The Amazing Atheist, tweeted that Vikander’s breasts were too small for the sexpot role, originally a voluptuous video game character.
Do I have to be the asshole who says her tits are too small for me to see her as Lara Croft? Do I have to be that guy? Do I have to be the one who fucking says it?
I guess I do. Sorry. pic.twitter.com/5CsXwYFjBb

“Do I have to be the asshole who says her tits are too small for me to see her as Lara Croft? Do I have to be that guy? Do I have to be the one who fucking says it?” he tweeted, being that guy. “I guess I do. Sorry.”
Allow us to remind you that this is what “The Amazing Atheist” looks like himself.
It was an unwarranted comment that has sparked outrage from Tomb Raider fanatics, revealing that they have embraced Vikander as their Lara Croft.
