Irony Alert: In Wake of Mass Shootings, Universal Pulls Ads For Bloody Thriller In Which Elites Slay 'Deplorables'


In light of the El Paso and Dayton, Ohio mass shootings, Universal Pictures has temporarily pulled ads for a gory new film starring Hillary Swank. The movie, entitled “The Hunt,” is about a group of wealthy elites who pay others to kill “deplorables.”


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal is evaluating its marketing strategy for their new satire film:

“The Hunt,” a gory, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse, which was originally titled, “Red State Vs. Blue State,” follows a dozen red-state Americans who are kidnapped and released in a hunting ground to be stalked and killed by high-paying elites.

“Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.

As soon as the news out of El Paso and Dayton broke last weekend, the finger pointing began. Liberals throughout the country self-righteously began blaming President Trump’s racist rhetoric on immigration for the shootings.


Do the writers, producers and actors responsible for this film see the great irony here?

Notice they are not scraping the film, they’re temporarily halting the ads for it, because, you know, they want to show their respect for the victims and their families.

The storyline says it all. It “follows a dozen red-state Americans who are kidnapped and released in a hunting ground to be stalked and killed by high-paying elites.” Cinematic magic.

A 2-minute trailer for this movie appears in the tweet below during which five people are brutally murdered. Watch the clip if you can.

The 2020 candidates, each of whom immediately blamed Trump should all watch this trailer. So should every member of the mainstream media.

This movie is pathetic and so are all the liberals who have pushed this narrative for so long.
