Grand Theft Auto is finally adding its first voiced female protagonist in GTA 6’s Lucia, and some fans are already making us uncomfortable.

GTA 6’s first trailer arrived in December 2023, and it brought with it our first official look at both Lucia and a currently unnamed male protagonist who leaks indicate will be called Jason.

Not only does Lucia look like an interesting character, but she’s also the first fully-fledged woman main character in the series thus far.

Fans have been able to play as women in GTA Online, and the original Grand Theft Auto also allowed users to choose a female portrait at the start of the game, but this is still a major step for the franchise.

And, of course, some gamers are getting a little too excited about it.

Creepy Lucia Fans Are Making Themselves Heard

Over on the GTA 6 subreddit, one popular post indicates that many players are looking forward to removing Lucia’s clothes when they get their hands on the game in 2025.

While Jason’s selected outfit resembles that of iconic GTA protagonist Tommy Vercetti, the meme implies that Lucia’s wardrobe should consist of just her shoes and ankle monitor.

It’s one thing to be excited about customizing our new protagonist, and another thing entirely for so many fans to be joking about immediately stripping her naked.

Of course, the post itself is likely just a joke at the end of the day, but it’s bringing GTA’s creepier fans crawling out of the woodwork.

The comments are largely in agreement with the post-maker, indicating that Lucia will be their preferred character for all-too-obvious reasons:

Many of the other replies are likely just poking fun at over-eager fans who can’t be normal about a woman being a GTA main character.

Or at the very least, we hope that’s the case:

The post is already the most upvoted post of the month on the GTA 6 subreddit, which feels just a little gross.

Then again, it’s not like there’s been an abundance of GTA 6 news lately, and perhaps the stir-crazy subreddit is simply rallying behind the first popular post in a while.

We suppose this is better than those fans who got upset at the idea of having a female lead in a GTA game in the first place. But, like… barely?

Equality, That’s More Like It

Thankfully, Reddit user MeiNeedsMoreBuffs has responded with their own take on the GTA 6 meme, and it’s the step towards equality we sorely needed:

We’re still not sure what decade these posters think GTA 6 takes place in, judging by Jason’s choice of phone, but now fans of both Jason and Lucia can enjoy their characters to the fullest.

But if you’re reading this, post-maker, don’t think we didn’t notice that you removed the footwear…
