Movies, TV shows and music that were mired in controversy at release

Yardbarker Logo By Jeremy Smith of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 26: Craig Zobel’s “The Hunt”, in which twelve strangers are hunted for sport by “elites," was originally set for release on Sept. 27, 2019. Then the nation suffered two horrific mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, forcing Universal Pictures to pull the film from its release slate. The film finally arrives this Friday, March 13, at a time when the country is in full freakout mode (justifiably) over a completely different threat. Even then, the unabashedly political film is sure to provoke no shortage of arguments and hot takes over the next few weeks. We’ve been here before, sometimes for better; other times for worse. Here are 25 films, television shows and pieces of music that caused hellacious stirs.
