NY Mag’s Vulture notices that the viral Tropic Thunder website for Simple Jack has disappeared. They suggest that concern from disabled rights advocacy groups may have convinced DreamWorks to take the site down.
I still think the website was mocking Hollywood, but as Vulture notes, the movie’s tagline “Once upon a time…there was a retard” crosses a definite line. We live in sensitive times. Perhaps it’s for the better.
