If he owned the property pre-1972, I could see a case being made.However, he bought the property in 2008, and therefore with his eyes wide open about the Coas...

I'm not sure if I can even get to a theater to watch Black Panther given the torrent of progressive spooge all over the place.
The part of Black Panther that I am most looking forward to is where it is revealed that T'Challa is Rey's father.*

. . . even if it stars Jeffrey Tambor, who is now being airbrushed out of the promotional materials. That would be the best sick joke ever. One poster featuring him with the cast and the same one where he's been removed. https://twitter.com/tomgara/status/964334970352361472 Uncle Joe would be proud.
