Democrats Try And Fail To Catch Conservatives Cheering Ashley Judd's On-Screen Death

CPAC crowd unmoved by the big moment, video shows. No gotcha here.

WASHINGTON — Democrats hoped to catch attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference cheering the on-screen death of Ashley Judd at a screening of Olympus Has Fallen Friday evening.

But conference organizers told conservatives, a person at the screening said, to leave their politics at the door, and the gotcha devised by supporters of the actress, who is reportedly on the verge of launching a race for the Kentucky Senate seat, fizzled.

Judd, a likely candidate for Senate against Mitch McConnell (R-KY), plays the First Lady in the film. It portrays a North Korean terrorist attack on Washington that results in the president being taken hostage.

Judd supporters hoped her on-screen death would make for some viral video when played before the audience at annual conservative gathering, and promised BuzzFeed a recording of the event, however it came out.

The video that resulted shows a jerky and out-of-focus scene from Olympus Has Fallen and records audio of the small CPAC audience sounding unmoved.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
