I personally dislike the term “snowflake” but you have to admit it’s pretty ironic that a group of people who originated the term were doing exactly what they criticized others for.

And considering movies are a passion of MINE, I don’t mind saying it’s pretty snowflakey to get a movie pulled because they disagree with the premise. Even moreso when they go after it sight unseen and are most likely mistaken about the premise.

I don’t know if I have much interest in seeing this movie either way but it still makes me mad that a studio folded to pressure from a vocal minority.

Ok, I wasn't aware of this movie until the controversy, so I checked out the trailer. Now I'm super confused...why is the right losing their shit about this? The movie has liberal "elites" as the villains and "red state" Americans as the heroes. It plays like the wet dream for those folks. If anything, I'd expect the left fo be complaining...so what's the problem?

Because right wingers jumped to conclusions based on a few snippets of the movie and assumed it was about liberals hunting “deplorables”. Of course they lost their minds before learning what the actual plot was.

Exactly right. This is just one person who did exactly that.

Hmmm. I lean more right myself, but I don't see what the big deal is... I wouldn't mind seeing it. It's been done before many times. The Most Dangerous Game, Surviving the Game, etc. It looked kind of fun from the trailer.
