[Movies] Creators Of Twilight Parody Film Claim Franchise Is Racist
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.17.2013



TMZ reports that producers of a film called Twiharder, a spoof of the Twilight franchise, claim the film is appropriate for parody because it features domestic violence, teen pregnancy, drug addiction, date rape, and racism. Lionsgate previously sent a cease and desist letter to the producers, claiming it is a "rip-off". They want a judge to keep it from being released.

Producers claim it has a legal right to parody the topics. They say the film is racist because it shows Native Americans as "bloodthirsty warriors, noble savages and sexual predators". They also say it promotes statutory rape because of the relationship between 17-year-old Bella and Edward, "who is nearly 100 years her senior." The domestic violence claims refer to the rough sex between the two. The producers want a judge to rule that they are in the right for parodying the film.
