Not only is the first Ghostbusters trailer the least liked in YouTube history, but instead of releasing the second trailer again through YouTube, Sony decided to post the second Ghostbusters trailer on their official Facebook page so as to avoid the dislikes.

Now Melissa McCarthy has added more of her two cents in a new interview by telling the Ghostbusters haters to find a friend.

 “All those comments – ‘You’re ruining my childhood!’ I mean, really,” she said to the Guardian (via EW) “Four women doing any movie on earth will destroy your childhood? I have a visual of those people not having a [husband], not having friends, so they’re just sitting there and spewing hate into this fake world of the Internet. I just hope they find a friend.”

McCarthy did previously come out and reveal she wasn't in favor of the first Ghostbusters trailer. She brought up the point it has nothing to do with the original movie (which the trailer mentioned), but Sony told her they didn't care what she thought.

Maybe they should have.

Director Paul Feige has also cursed out the Ghostbusters haters on more than one occassion.

"Ghostbusters" has a July 15 2016 release directed by Paul Feig also starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Charles Dance and Michael Kenneth Williams.


Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world!
