The Twitter account of LA Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson has been inundated by Americans angry at her petty and condescending review of the popular film, “Lone Survivor.” She perfunctorily calls the movie’s Navy SEALs heroes, but spends most of her column deriding the movie as an embellished “jingoistic snuff film” with an attitude of “brown people bad, American people good.”

After Glenn Beck publicized her insults, many veterans and military family members took to Twitter to let her know how they felt about her derision:

Among all the people angry at Nicholson, there were a few veterans who agreed with her:

Since getting all this attention, Nicholson has tried to mollify her detractors:

We wonder how many egregiously inaccurate liberal movies (see, e.g., here, here, here, here, and here) Nicholson has raked over the coals for factual errors?
