Who is feeding The Drudge Report its bear rape tips?


The conservative link page—which famously drives the national political conversation—is still claiming that the new movie The Revenant features a scene in which Leonardo DiCaprio is raped by a bear, even after a Fox spokesperson reassured the world in an official statement, “There is clearly no rape scene with a bear.”

The Drudge Report quotes an anonymous source saying, “He is raped—twice!” Further, the report says some audience members have left theaters while the bear “thrusts and thrusts.” It indicates some kind of sourcing from “early screenings.” And yet Fox says not only is the bear not a rapist, it’s also female. The accused bear is pictured above.
