Remaking movies has become a staple in modern Hollywood.

Now these updates are being forced to comply with the Left’s political agenda. 

And a Breakfast Club star had awful news for fans with this confession about a woke remake.

1980s movie star goes woke

Actress Molly Ringwald starred in some of the biggest coming-of-age movies in the 1980s and was a member of the Brat Pack – a group of young and upcoming actors that included Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and Anthony Michael Hall, among others.

She became a teen idol working with director John Hughes in such classics as The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and Sixteen Candles.

Ringwald was at the Miami Film Festival, where she accepted Variety’s Creative Vanguard Award.

She used the occasion to go on a woke tirade about how if 1980s classics she starred in were remade today they would need to be more diverse.

“Those movies, the movies that I am so well known for, they were very much of the time,” Ringwald ranted. “And if you were to remake that now, I think it would have to be much more diverse. And it would have to be, you know, you couldn’t make a movie that white. Those movies are really, really, very white.”

“And they don’t really represent what it is to be a teenager in a school in America today, I don’t think,” Ringwald added.

She blamed the problem on her frequent collaborator John Hughes.

“I think they were really great and of that time, but they were his experience — John Hughes’s experience,” Ringwald said.

Hughes grew up in a well-to-do Chicago suburb, Northbrook, Illinois.

The teen movies she starred in are some of the most beloved movies to come out of the 1980s.

She’s spent decades trashing the movies that made her famous for not being woke enough.

Molly Ringwald complains that The Breakfast Club is sexist

During the height of the #MeToo frenzy in 2018, she wrote that The Breakfast Club was sexist in an article for The New Yorker.

“I can see now, Bender sexually harasses Claire throughout the film. When he’s not sexualizing her, he takes out his rage on her with vicious contempt, calling her ‘pathetic,’ mocking her as ‘Queenie,'” Ringwald wrote.

She blamed movies like the one she starred in for perpetuating misogyny. 

“If attitudes toward female subjugation are systemic, and I believe that they are, it stands to reason that the art we consume and sanction plays some part in reinforcing those same attitudes,” Ringwald wrote.

She added that Hughes’ writing was “inappropriate.”

Hollywood has ruined countless movies with poorly made or woke remakes.

Fans of The Breakfast Club can only hope that Molly Ringwald’s vision for a remake never comes true.
