Fans Were Personally Offended by Last Night’s Dirty Dancing Remake

If you were brave enough to watch last night’s Dirty Dancing remake, then you were surely cringing HARD throughout. Though the promised changes to the classic script attempted to put a new twist on the beloved story — like Lisa’s interracial crush and the glimpse we got into Baby and Johnny’s future — nothing (NOTHING!) could save this lifeless retelling. And if the way viewers dragged it is any indication, they were definitely less than impressed.

While there’s no denying that any remake of Dirty Dancing has A LOT to live up to (with plenty of fans feeling like it shouldn’t be remade at all), ABC’s version was simply… well, brutal. At least, if Twitter reactions were any indication.

With lead actors that arguably lacked chemistry, unnecessary alterations, and way too many WTF moments, fans of the original were absolutely lit over the remake.

Plenty of peeople admitted they were watching out of sheer horrible fascination and twisted obligation…

And were quick to compare the current cast to the original…

And Baby’s dancing? Just… no…

Though the ending followed through by showing us Baby and Johnny years later, it was beyond obvious that it was a HUGE mistake…

And no one was shy (at all!) about sharing their offended sensibilities…

Frankly, the most entertaining part of the remake was the hysterical tweet-storm it provided…

Although ABC can still redeem themselves…
