Trailers for Universal's upcoming movie showing liberal elites hunting MAGA types for sport has been pulled in the wake of mass shootings in El Paso, Dayton and Gilroy.
In response to three mass shootings that left a total of 34 people dead, Universal Pictures and horror giant Blumhouse are reevaluating their game plan for their gory political satire, The Hunt.
Over the weekend, ESPN pulled a previously cleared TV advert for the movie from their network while AMC aired a trailer during the season premiere of their TV drama The Preacher.
ESPN's parent company Disney declined to comment on the situation, but a source from ESPN says trailers for The Hunt will not appear on the network in the weeks leading up to the film's release.
A source told The Hollywood Reporter that even before the devastating mass shootings that transpired in El Paso, Texas, Dayton, Ohio and Gilroy, California, some reshoots were done.
The violent, gun-toting film revolves around a group people from predominately Republican states being kidnapped and hunted for sport by liberal elites.
GLOW's Betty Gilpin stars opposite Hilary Swank, the two leads playing women on different political divides in an exaggerated re-imagining.
In the trailer, Swank's character says: 'We pay for everything, so this country belongs to us.'
In the screenplay for movie, the hunted are described as 'deplorables'.
The film was originally called Red State Vs. Blue State.
