Because of trans baiting and feminism garbage. It wasn't as bad as they make it sound, but frankly, with all the garbage being shoveled out in mass media, at this point people are growing MORE intolerant of that crap because it's screaming "Be tolerant bigot!" at people.
An example is the years of shitty Mary-Sueshit and feminist liberalism in movies like the Star Wars Sequels and the Ghostbusters 2016 and Captain Marvel and other trash, which made people absolutely detest any hints of that in the Solo movie, despite the feminist and liberalism being toned down, because at this point people are sick of seeing it to the point of raging out at the slightest hint.
TL;DR: Excessive overexposure to liberalism has made most people have a hairtrigger against anything remotely feminist.
Ironically this also means that merely mediocre movies with female leads are getting flak because people just don't want to even hear it.
Also Naughty Dog literally fired a female game developer who created the franchise because she was against several of the "creative decisions" inserted into the game, so it's blatantly hypocritical too.
