Looks like a load of codswallop (As if there is anything human that isn't, ha!)but expect the usual quarters to have a fit, 'cause it looks as if this re-boot's Thing will have once been of the colored persuasion. One might also question the black guy being the one who's transmogrified into the lumpy orange-skinned freak (who isn't John Boehner).
And on the third hand, one might just not give a crap either way & actually prefer to be lobotomized w/ knitting needles mercifully plunged through one's eyes to prevent even uncomprehending vision. I know I would.
