There’s no denying that “The Hunger Gag” is one of the best movies of the year, and that it’s also one of its most controversial.
The film’s director, Brad Pitt, took to Twitter to apologize for the film’s controversial treatment of a woman in his movie, and the response was swift.
As a result, Pitt issued a public apology, which has been met with widespread backlash.
In this week’s episode of the VICE News Weekly podcast, we take a look at the film, which some have labeled “rapey” and some as “sexist.”
Plus, a bunch of other topics that we’ve covered in the past week.
This week’s guests: Sarah Darnell, a reporter at The Atlantic who covers women in media, and who co-hosts the podcast with Sarah Dallin.
