The US Army has issued a dramatic and unusual warning to its service members over possible 'incel' related violence at the upcoming debut of the new movie 'Joker.' As The New York Post reports:

The US Army issued a warning about the possibility of mass shootings at upcoming screenings of “Joker,” according to a new report.

In a widely distributed email on Sept. 18 marked “For official use only,” officials reminded service members to “identify two escape routes” and to “run, hide, fight” in the event of a shooting, Gizmodo reported...

The email to service members explained that incels “idolize the Joker character, the violent clown from the Batman series, admiring his depiction as a man who must pretend to be happy, but eventually fights back against bullies.”...

In another memo Monday, top officials of the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division said it received “credible” intelligence from law enforcement in Texas about “disturbing and very specific chatter” on the dark web about “the targeting of an unknown movie theater during the release.”


The controversial film, starring Joaquin Phoenix is set to debut on October 4th.
