A movie about elite liberals paying to hunt conservative Americans in a safari theme park has been cancelled after a wave of criticism, accusing the film of insensitivity to a recent wave of political violence across America.
‘The Hunt’ features a plotline involving elite progressives kidnapping rural Americans and enacting their vengeful, violent fantasies through a hunt-style theme park. The movie starred Betty Gelpin as a kidnapped ‘deplorable’ who seeks to rally other victims of the liberals to escape their predicament.
Universal Pictures, the movie’s publisher, was said to be reconsidering the film’s promotional strategy after the politically charged violence seen at El Paso and Dayton. The company revealed they had decided to cancel the film’s release entirely in a statement to Fox News on Saturday.
“While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film.
We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”
It is worth noting that the film’s premise didn’t necessarily imply that it sought to demonize or encourage violence against conservatives. A look at the movie’s trailer reveals the elite liberals are clearly the villains of the film’s plot, a development that was said to leave coastal progressives within the film industry less than thrilled.
The film was originally slated for release on September 27th, a plan that has been cancelled. It’s possible that the movie, which had an economic $18 million budget, will be released on streaming services or cable TV within the coming months and years, when Universal sees its release as more appropriate in a politically tense environment.
Donald Trump Quits ‘Dismal’ Screen Actor’s Guild Following Threats: ‘You Have Done Nothing for Me’
Trump blasted this ineffective union before quitting.
Former president Donald Trump has issued a letter to the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) resigning from the union effective immediately after the SAG announced they were considering expulsion.
“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!” Trump wrote in the letter addressed to SAG president Gabrielle Carteris.
“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – just to name a few!” he continued.
“I’ve also greatly helped the cable television news business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others,” Trump added.
This is when Trump started maligning the SAG by pointing out their miserable record as a union, which is being sued by its own membership for failing to provide adequate healthcare benefits.
He wrote: “Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors, who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?'”
“These, however, are policy failures. Your disciplinary failures are even more egregious. I no longer wish to be associated with your union. As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation,” Trump added.

Big League Politics has reported on the film industry’s shame over having promoted Trump for so many years, helping Trump build the notoriety among the American public that allowed him to become the 45th president:
The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on a resolution to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.
“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said West Hollywood Mayor John Duran on Twitter.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will have to approve Trump’s star removal for it to be officially bar.
“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk,” said Leron Gubler, the Chamber’s president and CEO.
Among the stars that will certainly not be removed from Walk of Fame are those belonging to accused pedophile Kevin Spacey, and convicted rapist Bill Cosby.
Apparently, as long as one apologizes, Hollywood has no problem with alleged pedophilia.
Trump couldn’t have become president, changed the country forevermore, and exposed the Left’s treacherous agenda in the eyes of tens of millions of Americans without the help of the entertainment industry. They have now outlived their usefulness, but the ironic role they have played in promoting America’s revival will not be forgotten.
