Why is that our headline? Who would possibly assume that’s a plot point of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s adaptation of Michael Punke’s novel? Drudge Report.

Their actual headline:

And here’s a choice excerpt:

The bear flips Leo over and thrusts and thrusts during the explicit mauling.

“He is raped — twice!”

I’ve seen The Revenant. So I can assure you that among its many harrowing moments, there is no bear-on-man rape. However, I cannot explain how someone watched this movie’s mauling scene (teased in the trailer) and walked away with that reading.

All the same, Drudge’s uproar spurred the film’s distributor to issue a statement to EW:

“As anyone who has seen the movie can attest, the bear in the film is a female who attacks Hugh Glass because she feels he might be threatening her cubs. There is clearly no rape scene with a bear.”

But hey, at least Twitter had fun.

Kristy Puchko can’t even sometimes.
