HBO Max Removes Gone With the Wind


First, I am going to make this statement about this movie. I understand that when people rank the greatest movies of all time, Gone With the Wind is on almost every single one of those lists. People call it a cinematic masterpiece. But I remember sitting down and watching this movie twice and thinking why? Any movie that came on two VHS tapes was not worth it. That movie is boring. And I love classic movies. I don’t have an issue with that at all, it’s boring and it is racist.

Now, with that being said, HBO Max pulled the film from its streaming service to add a card before the movie or a discussion about how the tones of the movie are not appropriate for the present, the future, and even when the movie was made.

The move comes after George Floyd was viciously by four police officers in Minneapolis last month. The tones of the film are still commonplace in our country and people are taking to the streets to try to change that notion and show that Black Lives Matter.

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
