Sensitive: Movie studio pulls ads for film in which elites hunt down and kill red-state deplorables

We don’t have to tell you the irony of everyone in Hollywood being pro-gun control while pumping out movie after movie glamorizing guns and gun violence. But it seems the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have compelled Universal to pull ads for “The Hunt,” and update of “The Most Dangerous Game” in which wealthy elites can pay to hunt down red-state deplorables.

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

In the wake of a trio of deadly massacres, the studio is evaluating its strategy for the R-rated Blumhouse satire in which elites stalk “deplorables.”

“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.

That sounds like it will really be a big hit in flyover country.

It’s still due out in September, as far as we know. They just pulled the ads out of respect for the victims of the weekend’s mass shootings.

Here’s the trailer if you’re still interested. (Caution: Explicit gun violence!) Our guess is the “deplorables” win out in the end, but not before taking a few losses.

Our question: How many “elites” even know how to load a gun?
