    Donald Trump Gets AIDS In A New Movie, And That Has Studio Execs In A Panic

    Audiences at screenings around the world, and some even in the United States, have been cheering and applauding a macabre scene in a new film by Sacha Baron Cohen in which "Donald Trump" accidentally contracts HIV.

    "The Brothers Grimsby" opens March 11 in the U.S., though chances are you're learning that for the first time here, given a decision by Sony Pictures to limit its marketing of the satiric comedy. The studio is concerned about the reaction from the real Donald Trump, according to industry sources familiar with the situation.

    At the film's world premiere in London last week, the Daily Telegraph reported that the Trump moment was met with "loud cheering." The Metro newspaper called it a "massive cheer." A viewer at a different screening tweeted, "Went to watch Grimsby and the whole cinema clapped when Donald Trump got given AIDS in it."

    Elsewhere in Europe, there were standing ovations. The joke, done in Baron Cohen's standard over-the-top style, is proving cathartic to overseas audiences terrified by Trump's rise.

    Considering all the hateful things Drumpf has said and proposed, I'm not a bit surprised.

    Haven't looked that closely at this so I'm not sure who wrote the thing. But by the tweet, as horribly graphic sounds the script, it does seem directed by Trump, that if he were to give a thing direction, this would be that.

    PS, I see there's only 165 views. Southbitch must not yet have ventured away from News where he's too busy defunding Arts & Entertainment to take a moment to macro this out-of-News thread. Nice to see he's occupied with something other than stretching his foreskin.

    Sony is distributing this film? I am really disappointed in them for joining in the republican, religious, circus clown show, they should know better, they should not even show something like this, at all or send it right to DVD or Netflix.

    Its just totally wrong and bad karma no matter who the enemy is. Of course the studio SHOULD BE worried about Trump counter reacting. Maybe just cut the entire scene?

    But Sony has been through this type controversy before with its release of the Interview, despite threats from N Korea. I personally went to see the Interview at theater but I think I will skip the movie with scene Trump accidentally getting Aids. icon_confused.gif

    I read this in the Hollywood Reporter yesterday and I just cringed. Seriously?!? How sad that someone would find this even remotely funny.

    Yeah, but it's really just mass public trolling. If there were a movie about something horrible happening to Hillary, I'm sure some people would react the same way.

    The difference would probably be the media reaction - there would be the usual couch-fainting and pearl-clutching over sexism and misogyny, etc.
