YouTuber Faces Backlash For Saying Alicia Vikander's Breasts Are Too Small

Tomb Raider star Lara Croft is one of the most famous video game heroes of all time, with a generation of gamers growing up admiring her skill - as well as her pixelated sex appeal.

With her two pistols, skimpy shorts and 'strong' chest, the original Croft was designed to titillate, which led to her being played by the similarly buxom Angelina Jolie in the early 00s movie adaptations of the series.

Alicia Vikander is the latest person tasked with playing Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider film, due for release next week and based on the 2013 reboot of the game which saw a more realistic take on the character.

However, one YouTuber has now expressed the unpopular opinion that Vikander can't possibly play the famous archaeologist and adventurer - because her breasts are 'too small'.

As you can imagine, this view hasn't gone down well at all.

The Amazing Atheist Guy's post on Twitter quickly went viral, with a host of people telling him exactly what they thought about it - and most of them weren't best pleased.

"You also have the option not to be trash," one person said.

"But you are a massive tit, so it balances out, surely," a second user quipped.

"I don't think it's really that important. She is an outstanding actor. It's all that matters," a third person responded.

Despite the torrent of criticism the YouTuber has received for his tweet, it still hasn't put him off continuing to comment on Alicia's casting as Lara, even photoshopping a pic of what he thought Alicia should look like.

Later, he sought to defuse the situation by referring people back to what the original Lara looked like:

Sometimes you've just got to hold your hands up and admire someone's baffling inability to back away from a debate they're clearly losing. He's certainly clinging tightly with both hands to the courage of his convictions.
