Everybody loves a good remake, right?
Well, ABC just premiered its TV remake of the 1987 classic, Dirty Dancing.
And, spoiler alert -- people are not frickin' having it.

Abigail Breslin took on the role of Baby, with newcomer Colt Prattes making his debut as Johnny.
To the cast of the #dirtydancing remake: This isn't your fault. The director, casting agent & whoever else thought this was good let u down— Haley Singleton (@haley_lanier) May 25, 2017
Most people had beef with the fact that Abigail's Baby looked way too young to be spending a sexy summer Colt's Johnny.
im not saying Abigail Breslin isn't talented but when you cast her as a romantic lead & she looks 14, everyone is going to be uncomfortable— Antoinette (@Ms_antoinette_) May 24, 2017
I should probably also mention that Abigail's dancing skills were not exactly up to par.

I'm still not over that horrendous #DirtyDancing monstrosity. It's like Abigail Breslin trained for 5 minutes. Very hard to watch.— Amanda (@VandenVogue) May 25, 2017
She totally knows it, though.
“I’m the exact antithesis of graceful,” Breslin told People while promoting the film.
“I can barely walk a straight line.”
#dirtydancing Abigail Breslin dances like a sack of potatoes. This is the worst thing I've ever seen... and I watched Sharknado.— Sara Couillard (@slbflag) May 25, 2017
This #DirtyDancing version is awk bc Baby is supposed to be getting better at dancing, but she's getting worse.— jessica (@Jess_Texx) May 25, 2017
Please for the love of God, someone put baby in the corner and end this. #DirtyDancing— gina (@notsolatersbaby) May 25, 2017
Honestly, I'm sitting here trying to list every single thing that was horrible/uncomfortable/just-plain-wrong with ABC's version, but I don't have the energy. There's too much.
So I'm just going to let Twitter say it for me.

When I thought the new dirty dancing couldn't get worse, I get to the ending ! Wtf was that ? Who the hell came up with that idea? #sucked— Maria 🇨🇦🇮🇹🐶🐶👪 (@Habsjunkey) May 25, 2017
Wait...Is this La La Land or Dirty Dancing??? WTF? Is this a new thing? Just take the end of La La Land and ruin every love story with it?— Amanda (@_amanda_star) May 25, 2017
How are you feeling about the new version of Dirty Dancing, fam?
If ABC was smart, they'd run the original #DirtyDancing the next three nights in primetime without commercials, as penance for their crimes.— Justin Schillo (@mordock57) May 25, 2017
ABC go stand in the corner and think about what you have done. #DirtyDancing— Jen (@JenCollins18) May 25, 2017
