Paige Spiranac says women slam her for 'showing cleavage' as she fumes about Space Jam Lola Bunny losing 'big breasts'

PAIGE SPIRANAC is furious Space Jam character Lola Bunny is having her breasts reduced.

Ex-pro golfer Paige gets angry with women berating her for "showing cleavage" – and likewise believes that downsizing the cartoon rabbit's breasts suggests you can't be sexy AND strong.

The Instagram star claims curvy, crop-topped Lola was an "empowering" ballsy "f**king badass" in the original 1996 Space Jam movie starring basketball legend Michael Jordan.

But for this year's sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy, featuring another NBA icon in LeBron James, the bold, big-busted bunny has sparked heated social media debate with her less-sexualised new look.

Peeved Paige said: "The director wanted her to be less sexy and be seen as more strong. So what the director decided to do was take away all of her femininity. 

"She has no curves and her outfit is long basketball shorts with compression shorts and a baggy shirt. I took so much offence to this. 

"They're basically insinuating that you can't be sexy and also strong. 

"And to be seen as strong you have to be seen as more masculine. And you can't show off your body or curves. I hated that. I don't like what they're trying to say with this new Lola bunny.

"All women can be strong and sexy and empowered in their own way. 

"It's a cartoon character, like what the f*** are we actually talking about here but taking the boobs off Lola Bunny you are saying you can never be seen that way because women who have large breasts, what do we do about that? 

"You look at her in the original movie and she was a f**king badass. She balled out and she looked good.

"When she gave it to Bugs Bunny and said 'don't call me babe' then walked out, that was an empowering moment for three-year-old Paige watching this."



Director Malcolm D. Lee explained his new approach by saying: “Lola was very sexualized, like Betty Boop mixed with Jessica Rabbit.

“Lola was not politically correct…. This is a kids’ movie, why is she in a crop top? It just felt unnecessary, but at the same time there’s a long history of that in cartoons.

"This is 2021. It’s important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters'”

But social media celebrity Paige argued: "I don't like this new direction, I think it's lame. You don't have to appease everyone.

"I see a lot of women on social media on International Women's Day saying 'all women are great' and 'all women are powerful'.

"But they don't practice what they preach and they turn around and look at me and they're like 'all women are great, but you' because you show cleavage and use your body to your advantage. 

"We don't like you and you're actually holding us back and I'm like 'woah, that's not fair'.

"Why can't Lola Bunny be sexy too? Lola Bunny from 1996 is being cancelled."
