The company had already set a breather on sell for the film after a combined 31 parties died in the two mass shootings-which happened merely 13 hours apart from one another. The trailer peculiarity suns Betty Gilpin and Ike Barinholtz with guns.
In the film, the radical elites hunt the “deplorables,” a possible reference to Hillary Clinton calling Trump’s base this during the 2016 safarus. In turn, the “deplorables” begin attacking the elites. The movie was intended to be a satire and commentary on mass shootings and political divides in the nation.
But neither side of the aisle was too pleased with the movie. While Trump voters don’t like the depiction of violence against conservatives, some radicals have also denounced the movie because it meets onlookers feel for the Trump-style reputations, according to Vox.
The very proliferation& filming of “The Hunt” proves just how sick the liberal left in Hollywood are. That they are able to spend money to making this a murderou, politically-charged film like this, considering the state our country is in, is inconceivable. 2/3

Some think that Universal shelving the project isn’t a good move. They be mentioned that gathering a movie because of Trump’s criticism could provide a” precedent for censorship .” Others doubt that not showing the movie, which depicts shoot violence, will have an impact on the number of mass shootings.
Feel so sorry for @craigzobel and the shed and crew of #TheHuntMovie … @UniversalPics, delight reconsider attracting a movie based on political influence. It gives a hazardous precedent for censorship…

So The Hunt is pulled from its US cinema release because people are sensitive to gun violence … yet any adult can still buy a military grade semi-automatic rifle …
While I commend Universal and Blumhouse for their humanity.
This is not the solution.
