Universal's "The Hunt" isn't even out yet, but many are taking to Twitter to react to the film's trailer, calling it "beyond sick" and "disturbing."

"The Hunt," which initially was going to be titled "Red State vs. Blue State," is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers as they take a private jet to a five-star resort, where they embark on a “deeply rewarding” expedition that involves hunting down and killing "deplorables," per The Hollywood Reporter.

"Universal is releasing a horrific movie about hunting down people called The Hunt. They pulled the ads but they have not stopped its release. Absolutely irresponsible movie and fosters hate and killing of people who don’t believe the same as the hunters. Hollywood be shamed," a user wrote.

Another shared: "I just read a report on the movie “The Hunt” that comes out soon. this is why I can’t pick a side. A movie about rounding up a group of “deplorables” and HUNTING them is ok? Put all the gun laws on the books but we’re entertained by a movie about killing Trump supporters."

Universal Pictures told Fox News on Wednesday: "Out of sensitivity to the attention on the country’s recent shooting tragedies, Universal Pictures and the filmmakers of The Hunt have temporarily paused its marketing campaign and are reviewing materials as we move forward."

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

Republicans Don't Need A Back Bench...They Need a BACKBONE!

Brought to you by the very same elitist Liberals in Hollywood that are fully behind any and all efforts to take gun ownership rights away from you and me.

Hillary Clinton said that she was worried that the Republicans would not accept the result of the election. She said this when every news outlet in America was saying that she would win by a 10 to 1 ratio.

Yet she and the Liberals she represents haven't accepted that they lost. They really are out of their minds with rage and hate that they didn't get their way. It is like psychotic children. They cannot understand defeat. They cannot digest it due to their self-designated inherent 'superiority'.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Be careful here.

The movie isn't out yet, the actual plot line isn't completely clear yet.

I've heard that the thrust of the story is how the "deplorables" are able to organize and fight back against the "elites" (who are killing the d's "for sport") -- and that the d's win in the end.

All this talk about it being "satire" -- just doesn't sound quite right to me.

I don't think this is a "straight-outta" Hollywood film. I read the writers are a couple of guys from North Carolina.

I was reading the Rush Limbaugh thread about this, and he makes an interesting point.  How does Hollywood fare if they make a movie that casts Trump supporters in a sympathetic light?  The plot can't work if the elite hunters just kill the deplorable prey, there has to be a conflict that leads to the underdog coming out on top.  People are very likely to end up rooting for the "wrong" side.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.
