'Gone with the Wind' was set during and after the American Civil War and depicted slavery.

HBO Max announced it would be blacklisting the 1939 classic 'Gone With the Wind' after a liberal 'woke' uproar targetted the film, calling it "racist."

HBO said the film was "a product of its time" and depicted "ethnic and racial prejudices" that were "wrong then and are wrong today."

But what wasn't expected is that Americans scrambled to buy physical copies of the movie upon hearing the news.

As of Wednesday, the film became the number one bestselling movie on Amazon, despite DVDs and Blu-ray discs being sold out.

The film was set during and after the American Civil War and depicted slavery.

The movie features slave characters, which the 'woke' mafia claim makes the film dangerously racist for today's audiences.

Hattie McDaniel became the first black actress to be nominated for, and win, an Academy Award for her role as domestic servant Mammy.

An HBO Max spokesperson told Variety:

“These racist depictions were wrong then and are wrong today, and we felt that to keep this title up without an explanation and a denouncement of those depictions would be irresponsible."

“These depictions are certainly counter to WarnerMedia’s values, so when we return the film to HBO Max, it will return with a discussion of its historical context and a denouncement of those very depictions, but will be presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed."

"If we are to create a more just, equitable, and inclusive future, we must first acknowledge and understand our history.”

Breitbart's John Nolte wrote:

"So Gone With the Wind will return after it’s been vandalized with a filmed introduction of the 'correct' people instructing us on how to 'correctly' view, experience, and interpret this piece of art.

"And let me assure you HBO Max will not allow you to fast-forward through this tutorial on how to interpret art.

"Like those commercials, you cannot skip over, you will be forced to sit through it."
