Movie fans have slammed producers of grisly new film Joker for including a song by child sex beast Gary Glitter on its soundtrack.

The creepy thriller, starring Joaquin Phoenix as the twisted villain, is already breaking box office records after taking $93.5 million at US cinemas over the weekend.

But the makers of the movie are facing a wave of criticism from disgusted cinema-goers who noticed that Glitter's 1972 Rock and Roll Part 2 has been used in a lengthy scene.

The song plays as Phoenix dances down the stairs while his character transforms into the sinister killer.

And viewers have been unimpressed by the choice of song, as reported by The Sun.

Man vs Pink said: 'Gary Glitter gets royalties for Joker. They're literally paying a paedophile to use his music in a movie about the consequences of child abuse.

'I'm off the fence- this movie is immoral b******.'

And another said: 'Whose idea was it to play f******* Gary Glitter in Joker.'
