Line From Tim Allen's 'The Santa Clause' Reboot Angers Critics on Twitter


Critics on Twitter are expressing their anger with a line from Tim Allen’s reboot of “The Santa Clause.”

Filmmaker Scott Weinberg tweeted this week, “Saying ‘Merry Christmas to all’ has suddenly become problematic!’ — actual dialogue from the new Disney+ Santa Clause series starring Tim Allen.”

He added, “Got some really nasty jew-hate in the replies (and quote-RTs) for this tweet. not sure why, really. oh wait they don’t need a reason.”

Weinberg explained the line “just struck me as a truly weird thing to put in a kid’s series. ‘wants to stop us from saying Merry Christmas!’ is not some random campaign. it’s a low-key effort to vilify anyone who doesn’t celebrate this holiday. in a grown-up movie I’d just groan and ignore it.”

The line sparked strong reactions from critics.

One user tweeted, “Holy sh*t.”

Another tweeted, “Tim Allen definitely wrote that joke, it’s a joke that only a wrinkly old conservative could write.”

One tweet argued Allen “fought to put that line in.”

The first two episodes of the reboot titled, “The Santa Clauses,” was released on Disney+ this week.

According to the series description, “After nearly three decades of being Santa Claus, Scott Calvin’s magic begins to falter. As he struggles to keep up with the demands of the job, Scott discovers a new clause that forces him to re-think his role as Santa and as a father.”

Last month, Allen angered critics on Twitter after asking a question about “wokees,” as IJR reported.

“Who is the face of woke. Do wokees have a club house in someone’s backyard or maybe a cute yet safe playpen somewhere?” he asked.

Allen also received criticism after making a joke about President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview in September.
