"Viewers realize that history may not be so happy after all," reads the video text in the HuffPost tweet to its 11.4 million followers. "And they share their observations online."
Some social media users underlined by HuffPost claim that Rudolph's father verbally abuses him for having made a false nose in order to be accepted.
Others notice that the coach of Rudolph and other reindeer "laugh and call [Rudolph] names "to have the red nose while preventing it from playing reindeer games.
In terms of sexism, readers point to a scene where Rudolph's mother wants to join reindeer husband Donner to search for their son after he runs away and he is gone.
"No, it's the work of the man," Donner answers in the iconic movie.
Conservatives, including Fox's Tomi Lahren, Ben Shapiro and commentator Jesse Kelly, recently reinstated on Twitter after a controversial suspension, spent a day on Twitter mocking cartoon-related complaints.

2018: Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is problematic.
2019: Celebrating holidays is a problem because of capitalism.
2020: not finding problems is a problem.

I am sorry for future generations. The left prepares you to be fragile, weak and triggered by everything. A Christmas movie is emotionally damaging, but telling a 6 year old that he should be sexual is not? Sick people. https://t.co/BWerbv77tQ

Glad that someone finally points to the fanaticism of this odious tale. I mean, one of the reindeer is even called "Blitzen". Hitler used the famous battle strategy "BLITZkrieg". Coincidence? I do not think so. https://t.co/80zPlS4Pmv

All Rodolphe's interest was that people were mean to him, he rose above and prospered. Huff Post thinks he discovered a dark historical example of "bigotry", pointing out that people were rude to Rudolph. Yes, it's the whole frantic story, you absolutely base.
