but really what the fuck is a sympathetic villain

what the fuck is a sympathetic villain
why do white people love this fucking trope so much?
and. I’m not talking about those stories where both good and murky are fuzzy and there are no villains or heroes.
these are the same people who find ways to make hitler sympathetic
you can’t trust people like this
(and I always wonder… how much of this whole ‘lets make villains sympathetic’ is reallly just white propaganda to ensure that everyone looks at their monstrous deeds and excuse them because, hey, their lives are hard too)
