A Washington Post movie critic generated some controversy with a column entitled, "In a final videotaped message, a sad reflection of the sexist stories we so often see on screen." Ann Hornaday was referring to the video message left by mass shooter Elliot Rodger before he murdered six people Friday night near the University of California-Santa Barbara.

Here's the line that raised eyebrows:

"How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies like “Neighbors” and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of “sex and fun and pleasure”? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, 'It’s not fair'?"

Hornaday has now backtracked a bit after the director Apatow and actor Seth Rogen voiced their objections. She told WTOP radio she does not feel she was "blaming" Hollywood for the rampage, but was trying to focus attention on Rodger's final video message.

After her initial column, Rogen and Apatow wrote the following on Twitter:

Martha MacCallum discussed Hornaday's column and the reaction with Alan Colmes and Jonah Goldberg. Colmes said these mass shootings always have two things in common: mental illness and guns.

Martha added a third factor, pointing out that even President Obama has said that Hollywood needs to take a look at violence in movies.

Goldberg argued that the storyline of the "shlubby guy getting the girl" goes back to movies long before Judd Apatow. But he said he also has "sympathy" for Hornaday, adding that he doesn't think Rogen and Apatow are being "quite fair to her" with their criticism. 

He noted that Hornaday's larger point - that there are consequences to a culture that creates certain expectations for young men and women - is "not nearly as stupid" as when liberals highlighted a map on Sarah Palin's Facebook page after the Gabby Giffords shooting.
