Star Trek Into Darkness
co-writer Damon Lindelof has taken to Twitter to respond to the misogyny claims that have surrounded the now infamous underwear scene.
Featuring prominently in the trailer, the scene - in which Kirk gawps at Alice Eve’s Carol Marcus as she’s changing into her bomb disposal gear - has drawn criticism for for being gratuitous, or even sexist.
Writer Lindelof responded on Twitter with a series of even-handed comments:
I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress.— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies.Do not want to make light of something that some construe as mysogenistic.— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
What I'm saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future.— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
Also, I need to learn how to spell "misogynistic."— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
