Setting aside the tastelessness of using any form of rape as a joke, someone must really want The Revenant to fail:
20th Century Fox has dismissed reports that Leonardo DiCaprio's character is "raped by a bear" in his latest film The Revenant.
There's the whole thing about the politician (Lyndon Baines Johnson?) who told his staff to put out a rumor that his opponent was a pig fucker. The idea was, just getting him to deny that he was a pigfucker was good enough. But to extend this kind of cruelty to the release of a feature film is beyond the pale. Serious economic damage could be done here, and for what? To embarrass Leonardo DiCaprio?
You've really got to be disturbed to use a tactic like this.
