This dystopia on the pandemic has been strongly criticized on social networks.

“This #Songbird trailer made me furious… millions of people died but hey Michael Bay cashed in and made money,” reacts a user.

"I channel my electoral anxiety into anger at this stupid Michael Bay movie," wrote another.

If you see the SongBird trailer and you're not feeling well basic, don't watch it.

it is extremely anxiety-provoking.

We are still in the midst of the pandemic.

I want distractions, not to remember this nightmare, ”emphasizes one last.
