So they cancelled this upcoming movie called The Hunt

So I watched the trailer to see what all the fuss is about. Is this sort of thing likely to inflame the hatred and division in America or is it just a fun horror movie?

The president even tweeted about it apparently.

I wouldn't give a shit except that the left prattles on about the right fomenting violence and getting the vapors about chants at Trump rally's. This movie, it seems, glorifies the murder of their political opponents.

Given the actors, I might have watched this. ... on Netflix.

Yeah, but they're the bad guys, the villains in the movie, and the "deplorables" fight back. It's a bit like saying that the movie Star Wars "glorifies" blowing up planets.

What it boils down to is movie companies don't want bad publicity, and yes there is such a thing.

And unlike Star Wars, there could be real world violence plausibly provoked by it.
