Drudge Says Leonardo DiCaprio Raped by Bear in The Revenant, Twitters Loses It (UPDATED)

the-revenent-leo-dicaprio-bear-rape-300x169Academy Award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio’s newest film, The Revenant, supposedly involves a scene in which his character is raped by a bear. Twitter got wind of this on Tuesday and decided to quit everything else.

The unwanted-but-free press extravaganza for director Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s next began when Internet media hound Matt Drudge posted a rare tweet to his personal account about the story.

The report itself is, erm, “interesting.”

The explicit moment from Oscar winning director Alejandro Inarritu has caused maximum controversy in early screenings. Some in the audience escaped to the exits when the Wolf of Wall Street met the Grizzly of Yellowstone.

The story of rural survivalism and revenge reaches new violent levels for a mainstream film.

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

“He is raped — twice!”

Needless to say, Twitter’s collective response to the rumored scene is everything we love and hate about the Internet.

We all know where this is heading.

UPDATE–2:18 p.m. ET: According to Death and Taxes, DiCaprio is not raped by a bear in The Revenant. Sorry about the Oscar, Leo.
