A new film called “The Hunt” that features liberal elites hunting “deplorables” for sport, which was due to be released in September, has been dropped by Universal Studios.

The Hollywood Reporter has details:

Universal Scraps ‘The Hunt’ Release Following Gun Violence Uproar

The studio’s decision came a day after President Trump took aim at the film, saying it was “made to inflame and cause chaos.” The story follows a group of elites hunting “deplorables” for sport.

Universal has decided to scrap the release of The Hunt — an R-rated satire in which elites hunt “deplorables” for sport — following a series of mass shootings across the country. The film had been set to hit theaters on Sept. 27.

The studio’s Saturday announcement came a day after President Donald Trump took aim at the film — though he didn’t name its title — and Hollywood, saying on Twitter, “Liberal Hollywood is Racist at the highest level, and with great Anger and Hate! They like to call themselves “Elite,” but they are not Elite. In fact, it is often the people that they so strongly oppose that are actually the Elite. The movie coming out is made in order to inflame and cause chaos. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others. They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!”

Even before Trump weighed in, the movie sparked an outcry on social media amid the public anger over gun violence and networks entered into the conversation when ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared. Subsequently, Universal pulled all spots.

Here are Trump’s tweets:

This obviously doesn’t mean the film will never be released, Universal could always release it at a later time, and given the amount of free advertising it has received, it could still do well at the box office.

Here’s a copy of the statement Universal released regarding their decision:

Some people on the right have been critical of those who spoke out against the film, pointing out that the “deplorables” in the film are the good guys who likely win in the end. This misses the point entirely.

We are already living in an environment where “deplorables” are being targeted in real life for harassment and worse. When a person can be beaten up for merely wearing a MAGA hat in public, it’s not much of a consolation to hear that the “deplorables” have a fighting chance in a film about people hunting and killing them for sport.

Over at Ace of Spades HQ, Ace has written a lengthy analysis of this which is worth your time:

Your Daily Cuckstorm: Effeminate, Emasculated Twitter Soyboys Are On, Get This, Twitter, Shrieking About, Get This, How Dumb Conservatives Are and How Much Smarter Than Conservatives They Are

I know, I know. You just can’t believe it, right.

Oh, and they’re talking about — get this — movies.

Talking about movies on Twitter? It’s a day of Firsts for the cucks.

This is about The Most Deplorable Game movie, aka The Hunt.

So, they’re shrieking that conservatives are stupid for daring to imagine that a Hollywood movie about Deplorables might actually depict Deplorables in a bad light.

Can you imagine Those Stupid, Stupid Inbred Conservatives suspecting that liberal Hollywood elites might have it in for them?
