Since K-2SO is a robot, in this case, it seems the robot lacks the appropiate programming. But my point is, had K-2SO been a human character, the comedy would have been essentially the same. Who doesn’t laugh at Homer Simpson’s stupidity? Therefore, I found K-2SO related comedy ableist, and I hated that.
I don’t really understand the conflation of stupidity and ableism here either. K2SO doing stupid things doesn’t make him disabled.
He can’t be disabled since he’s a robot, but my point is that the same comedy that makes K-2SO “funny” is the same comedy that makes disabled characters “funny”. It’s not a problem that is limited to Rogue One.
I never laugh at Homer Simpson’s stupidity, that’s my point.
But stupid characters aren’t disabled either. That conflation is far more offensive than whatever happened in Rogue One.
I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard this complaint about Homer Simpson. Not once. And supposedly I’m the biggest SJW on the site.
