It’s only because it’s main character is set in the south. As I’ve said many times before. Anything below the Mason Dixon line is racist according to Hollywood elites.

What in today's society makes the movie Forrest Gump so offensive?


These warnings are usually on movies chicks love, because they're so easily offended.

Soft people require trigger warnings.

The realities of the Deep South’s history are most triggering to idiots.

I understand what they're getting at. A year or so ago "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" came on, and I let my 4yo watch it. I had forgotten about the KKK scene. No biggie right, it is a part of our history and they don't exactly glorify them in the movie.

Well, a week later he's marching around the house holding up a big stick and I asked him what game he was playing, and he said he was the white sheet guys from the movie we watched.

That said, if Netflix had told me up front "contains offensive material" that wouldn't have stopped me because that's too vague. But if it was more explicit like "Remember the Klan scene?" that would have been more helpful.
This is sarcasm, right? It's too hard to tell now days.
