"When companies continually force their views on us we need to take a stand," reads the Facebook post. "If we can not take our 11-year-old granddaughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it. If I can't sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it. I know there will be some that do not agree with this decision. That's fine […] We will continue to show family oriented films so you can feel free to come watch wholesome movies without worrying about sex, nudity, homosexuality, and foul language."
As for LeFou himself, Josh Gad, who plays the character in the film, had some opinions on his role, too. At the film's premiere, he said that the changes addressing LeFou's sexuality made him more complex and human.
Some commenters on the Henagar Drive-In's Facebook page (the post has over 1,000 comments) aren't happy with the theater's decision, noting that it is forcing its own views on the community.
