Hollywood Hate: Viewers Say "Zero Dark Thirty" Makes Them Want To Kill Arabs And Muslims

Read: The reviews are in: ‘Zero Dark Thirty makes me hate muslims.’ (Source: Mondoweiss).

After watching the Oscar-nominated film "Zero Dark Thirty," some people went on to Twitter to express their new-found hatred for Arabs and Muslims, and a few even said that they want to kill them.

This shouldn't be blown out of proportion. These people are not in the majority. They are obviously ignorant and stupid for 1) thinking this way about a whole group of people after watching a CIA-made film that depicts only the extremists, and 2) being honest about how they think about Arabs/Muslims on Twitter.

But this still deserves attention because it shows once again the power of Hollywood to shape thoughts and create hatred for the Outsider.
