HBO has now decided to pull the academy award winning film classic ‘Gone With The Wind’ from viewing on its service over accusations that the film is racist.
As Fox5NY reports:
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.
The decision to pull “Gone With the Wind” from the streaming service sparked some backlash on social media.
Born today in 1893: Hattie McDaniel, the first black actress to win an Academy Award for her role in Gone With the Wind.
HBO removed her award-winning movie on what would have been her 127th birthday.

HBO removing Gone With The Wind is just another part of the left’s sinister plot to erase American culture
Did you know—the first black American to win an Oscar was Hattie McDaniel for her role in Gone With The Wind
But the left doesn’t care.
They just want to see it all burn.

So now banning “Gone With The Wind” is supposed to solve racism?
