If you watch Blazing Saddles on HBO Max anytime soon, you’ll notice a new disclaimer that’s been added.

It’s similar to the one the streaming service put in front of Gone With The Wind.

HBO Max said the disclaimer for the Mel Brooks comedy classic warns and educates viewers about its “racist language and attitudes”.

The movie originally hit theaters in 1974, starring Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder.

It’s ranked #6 on the American Film Institute’s 100 Years…100 Laughs list.

Should other movies include similar disclaimers?
