Kathy Griffin likes to play the victim card as she claims she can no longer get work after her photoshoot holding a decapitated and bloody Trump head. Don’t let them fool you. Hollywood is still promoting violence. Universal Pictures is set to release a thriller called The Hunt on September 27, which will feature left-wing “elites” actually hunting Trump supporters for sport.
Over the past fest days it has been pushed that Trump’s rhetoric is the reason for the shootings. Despite this, Hollywood still thinks it’s a good idea to promote a movie where the objective is to shoot and kill “deplorables.”
First the Dems & celebs call for violence against Trump & his supporters.
Then we have multiple mass shootings by triggered liberals.
And now a movie called “The Hunt” is about to hit theaters showing Trump supporters being hunted down like animals.
These people are evil.

It took until now for Universal to reconsider their promotion strategies for the movie.
“Did anyone see what our ratf**ker-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.
Over the Aug. 3 weekend, ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared, while AMC ran the spot during the season premiere of its drama The Preacher. It’s unclear whether the ads were identical, but the one yanked by ESPN opened with a sound resembling an emergency broadcast signal. A rep for ESPN parent Disney declined to comment on the move, but an ESPN source says no spots for the film will appear on the network in the coming weeks.
The Hollywood Reporter said the movie “features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey.”
Here is the trailer for The Hunt:
More on the movie from PJ Media:
The original title for the film was Red State Vs. Blue State, so the political themes of the movie are clearly important to the plot. THR says that The Hunt “made some executives at Universal skittish back in May 2018, when film chief Donna Langley acquired the script and fast-tracked it at a modest $18 million budget,” but several studios “did not pursue it because of the explosive premise.” One studio executive reportedly didn’t even bother reading the script because “The idea seemed crazy.” The movie was produced by Jason Blum, who also produced other well-known horror flicks like The Purge, Paranormal Activity, and Get Out.
How was this a good idea at any point? The left loves to blame President Trump and his supporters for division in the country, then they go and release something like this.
