Trump slams Hollywood, alluding to upcoming satire movie 'The Hunt'

Trump slams Hollywood, alluding to upcoming satire movie 'The Hunt'

Donald Trump has claimed that Hollywood is racist in a new attack on the entertainment industry.

"Hollywood-I don't call them the 'elites;' I think the elites are people they go after, in many cases". You talk about racists, Hollywood is racist.

Blumhouse recently suspended adverts for The Hunt in the wake of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings after Fox News and other conservative outlets had criticised and attacked it.

"In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt humans for sport".

The term is a reference to a speech by Hillary Clinton in which she described some of the people who supported Donald Trump's campaign as "a basket of deplorables", a term which Trump supporters then reappropriated for themselves.

This brings the total to 16 human cases this year, with 11 having had the more serious, neuroinvasive form of the illness. Both ground spraying and aerial spraying over agricultural areas in Yolo County will continue.

Regarding The Hunt, described as a political satire, Universal has suspended marketing on the film in the wake of the recent mass shootings that killed almost three dozen people in Gilroy, CA, El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH.

Trump appeared to be referring to a controversial film called The Hunt, which features liberal-elites hunting down conservatives, referred to as "deplorables", for sport. "But Hollywood is really awful", Trump said.

Trump told reporters, "Hollywood is racist, what they're doing, with the kind of movies they're putting out. What Hollywood is doing is an incredible disservice to our nation".

Perhaps Trump was reacting to the celebrities who, over the past two days, tweeted their intentions to boycott chic fitness brands Equinox and SoulCycle over plans by owner Stephen Ross to host a fundraiser for the president.

Given how the shooter in El Paso was directly inspired by Donald Trump's racist speeches, it's not surprising that the studio chose to pull the trailer in light of the events - but that didn't stop Fox News from making a splash out of it.
