Trump accuses Hollywood of racism and inciting violence over "The Hunt" movie



Donald Trump is deflecting from racist accusations by blaming "Liberal Hollywood" for inciting violence with their movies -- namely, the upcoming Blumhouse production "The Hunt", a fictional horror movie set in a future where the rich hunt poor people for sport. The targets end up taking revenge on the rich (who are referred to as "deplorables" in the script). Ads for the movie were pulled over the weekend following the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

During a morning meeting today outside the White House, Trump referenced the movie as being an example of "Liberal Hollywood" inciting violence and being racist(?)

“We’re going to be very tough with them. They’re treating conservatives very unfairly. … Hollywood is really terrible. You talk about racist — Hollywood is racist. What they’re doing with the kind of movies they’re putting out, it’s actually very dangerous for our country. What Hollywood is doing is a tremendous disservice to our country.”
