HBO cancels Gone With the Wind actress Hattie McDaniel

HBO Max has removed Gone With The Wind after the woke progressives cried raaaaaaaaaaacist.

In a statement, the AT&T-owned WarnerMedia, which owns HBO Max, called “Gone With the Wind” “a product of its time” that depicts racial prejudices.

“These racist depictions were wrong then and are wrong today, and we felt that to keep this title up without an explanation and a denouncement of those depictions would be irresponsible,” said an HBO Max spokesman in a statement.

Apparently some head honcho can proclaim that his feeeeeeeeeeelings are the Golden Rule for what is irresponsible.

“A product of its time” could also be called HISTORY.

You know what else is a part of HISTORY? Hattie McDaniel. From Wikipedia:

“Hattie McDaniel (June 10, 1893 – October 26, 1952) was an American actress, singer-songwriter, and comedian. She is best known for her role as “Mammy” in Gone with the Wind (1939), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the first African American to win an Oscar.

In addition to acting in many films, McDaniel recorded 16 blues sides between 1926–1929 (10 were issued), was a radio performer and television star; she was the first black woman to sing on radio in the United States.”

From Hattie’s acceptance speech:

I sincerely hope I shall always be a credit to my race and to the motion picture industry. My heart is too full to tell you just how I feel. And may I say thank you, and God Bless You.”

Many of us will not let Hattie’s wish be denied. Last night, Gone With the Wind shot to number one on Amazon and sold out.

I for one will not cancel this “product of its time” nor Hattie McDaniel. Yes, we were one of the many folk who helped GWTW to sell out. Can’t wait to watch it again!

After the completion of the Game of Thrones series, there is absolutely no reason why anyone would subscribe to the pricey HBO. I, for one, will not.

So now if we ever want to see this great film again we have to buy it before the videos are “burned” too I guess? This is such a shame. Besides the fact that this movie shows a historical reality, what’s racist about it? Do you see them beating the snot out of Blacks like you did in the miniseries Roots? Oh yeah, I forgot that film was made to make you hate every White as a vicious slave owning tyrant so therefore it has artistic merit. Gone with the Wind showed that despite the slavery there is relationship between… Read more »

Yeah, and they are accusing Trump of ” timing” with his trip to Tulsa.

What a beautiful speech, it brought tears to my eyes. So humble and grateful was Hattie.

Transpose that with Joaquin Phoenix’s speech this year- faux conviction and outrage on behalf of… cows? I think?

Oh well, thus ever to (ignoramous) tyrants…..BLM in Philadelphia this past week tore down a statue to a little-known man who championed Abolitionism and spent his life and fortunes to ending slavery. But, it was probably an honest error b/c he was White.
