Video: SJWs Melt Down Over Bruce Willis’ ‘Death Wish’ Trailer

Daniel Nussbaum, Breitbart, August 3, 2017

MGM Pictures released the first trailer for its remake of the 1974 vigilante classic Death Wish on Thursday, featuring Bruce Willis taking over the lead role — but some critics and commentators have already branded the unreleased film “racist,” “alt-right,” and “nakedly fascist” over the short clip’s content.

Willis stars as Paul Kersey, a surgeon on a brutal quest for revenge after his wife is murdered and his daughter is raped.


The remake also trades out the original film’s gritty New York City environment for contemporary Chicago.


In a twist on the original character, Willis’ Dr. Kersey wears a hoodie, an item of clothing associated in recent years with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The trailer for the film came under fire on social media shortly after its release Thursday, with at least one critic contending that the original series was “always racist.”

Some critics wrote that the film’s release appeared ill-timed for today’s charged political environment, while Forbes film critic Scott Mendelson called the film’s message “tone-deaf” coming from a white filmmaking team.
