HBO CANS ICONIC MOVIE GONE WITH THE WIND

HBO CANS ICONIC MOVIE

HBO Max pulled the Oscar-winning Civil War epic “Gone With the Wind” from its library amid heightened racial tensions following the death of George Floyd.

ScreenRant and The Wall Street Journal were the first to report that the newly launched streaming service yanked the 1939 film, which takes place at an Atlanta plantation.

Critics in the modern era have criticized “Gone With the Wind” for its depiction of black people.

The film won eight Oscars including best picture and made history when Hattie McDaniel became the first black American to win an Oscar for her performance.
