Jerry Seinfeld apologizes again for ‘sexual connotations’ in Bee Movie

Protagonist and one of the screenwriters of Bee Movie, Jerry Seinfeld spoke about the problem in a speech at a university

Despite being one of the most popular animations of the 2000s, Bee Movie – The Story of a Bee (2007) had some aspects of the narrative that didn’t age very well, such as “sexual overtones” between the protagonist, the bee Barry Bee Benson (Jerry Seinfeld), and the human Vanessa Bloome (RenĂ©e Zellweger). Again, Seinfeld apologized for that.

It is worth remembering how the film was directed by Simon J. Smith It is Steve Hicknerwhile Jerry Seinfeld, Spike Feresten It is Barry Marder were responsible for the script. In the last Sunday, Seinfeld gave a commencement speech to graduates of the Duke Universitywhere the son Julian studies and daughter Sascha graduated, and spoke about the animation, released on December 7, 2007 in Brazilian cinemas.

“I made a cartoon about bees that you may have watched as a child. If any of you felt a little uncomfortable with the sexual connotations in the relationship between Barry B. Benson It is Vanessathe florist who saves his life, I would like to apologize for that now,” he said while making the audience laugh (via People). “Maybe I didn’t calibrate it perfectly.”

In 2021, Jerry Seinfeld had also apologized for the same problem Bee Moviethis time during an interview with The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon: “I apologize for what appears to be a certain subtle and uncomfortable sexual aspect of the film.”

[Isso] It really wasn’t intentional, but after it came out, I realized it’s not appropriate for kids. Because the bee seems to have a crush on the girl, and we don’t want to follow that as an idea in children’s entertainment.
