Six Facts Hollywood Doesn’t Want You To Know About American Sniper, Chris Kyle

The movie American Sniper, based on the story of late Navy Seal Chris Kyle, is a box office hit, and is setting records around the world for being one of the biggest movies of 2015. However, the autobiography of the same name, is being reported as a bunch of myths, lies” and exaggerations that Hollywood didn’t really clear up or explain.

Here are six lies about Chris Kyle, according to Raw Story, that Clint Eastwood failed to explain.

1. The movie creates a terrorist sniper that is unstoppable and works for several factions.

Chris Kyle’s main villain in the movie is a sniper called Mustafa. Mustafa is mentioned only one time in Chris Kyle’s book, but the movie makes him sound like a god-like killer.

2. The movie shows Chris Kyle as someone who is haunted by his actions. 

Throughout his book and in several interviews Chris Kyle never shows remorse for killing so many people. In the book, Kyle refers to everyone he fought as “savage, despicable” evil. He writes, “I only wish I had killed more.” He also writes, “I loved what I did. I still do. If circumstances were different – if my family didn’t need me – I’d be back in a heartbeat. I’m not lying or exaggerating to say it was fun. I had the time of my life being a SEAL.”

3. The real Chris Kyle told people that he killed dozens of people in Post-Katrina New Orleans, which was a lie. 

Chris Kyle claimed that he killed 30 people in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, a story Louisiana writer Jarvis DeBarry calls “preposterous”.

4. Chris Kyle lied about killing two men who tried to carjack him in Texas. 

Chris Kyle told people that he killed two alleged carjackers in Texas. Reporters tried to verify this claim, but no evidence of it exists.

5. Chris Kyle was sued for lying about former Governor of Minnesota.

Kyle said that he got into a fight with Governor Jesse Ventura at a local bar. Ventura successfully sued Kyle for this passage in the book, and the jury awarded him $1.845 million.

6. Chris Kyle’s family kept most of the donations and lied about how much money was given to charity.

The National Review points out that Chris Kyle gave around 2 percent, $52,000 to veterans’ charities while Chris Kyle made $3 million.

Despite ‘American Sniper’ being a major box office success, there is a growing backlash against the movie and Chris Kyle’s character. Many people are calling for the Academy Awards to make sure the movie does not win an Oscar in the next coming months. But, what do you think of Chris Kyle and the movie?

  1. It’s a movie, all movies are bullshit, some are told well, some aren’t. If it is told better than other movies then it deserves the Oscar.

  2. Looks like Michael Moore wrote this article. Such a shame to see people like you put down veterans who fought for our freedom.

  3. You’re brainwashed. The Iraqi war was all about OIL. The military was USED to protect those financially invested in oil. And I am a veteran.

  4. I will have to read the book before I believe one word of this obviously biased “article.” Disgusting.

  5. YOU UNGRATEFULL! UNAMARICAN BASTARDS !
    Do NOT ever forget the people who protect your everyday meaningless stupid life !
    To bad mouth this movie is to bad mouth the greatest military and veterans in the whole fucking world !
    To anyone who wanna fuck with my comrades
    ill show you the meaning of sniper rifle bazooka cock
    right up your DUMBASSES !!!

  6. first off, to the angry vet , THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.. truly. and now I must say… wow, did a guy just threaten to shoot ppl because they disagree with a military action? How “American” was that? People who disagree with the war in Iraq arent unpatriotic, maybe they are the real patriots, caring about the lives of young men and women USED by a government unnecessarily. To threaten to shoot people up their asses with a sniper rifle is an interesting response. As if veterans are all great people, we like to believe they are and then this guy writes a response as eloquent as that. This war ruined a bunch of kids lives and took a bunch of others, think about that and the celebrating of that war and respond to that. Clearly, you, Mr. crazy vet, are one of those ruined people.

  7. I do not believe all the things you wrote about Chris. Seem to me you are a part of the Hollywood crap about him. Duh, who doesn’t know about Jesse suing Chris? Jesse is a moron for suing Chris. By Jesse getting the money, he took it away from veterans. And so what if Chris and his family kept some or most of the money?? It’s his book. His family can do what they want with it. I don’t believe they intentionally lied about it. If Hollywood is worried about that, there’s a whole bunch of movies that aren’t totally truthful.
    So what if he liked his job? I’m glad he was there saving lifes. It doesn’t matter if you agree with the war or not, Americans were over there. Somebody had to protect them.
    I have respect for our military!

  8. I thought that it was a fantastic war movie. I loved it. I didn’t even know it was based on a real guy until the end of the movie. It is entertaining in every way. Personally, I don’t care one way or the other about the real Chris Kyle. But it was one helluva movie!! That’s all that matters to me.

  9. Since our freedom is not, and has never been at stake, to say that the military is fighting for our freedom is a tired, well worn diversion from the fact the military only exists to further the aims of the top 1%
    If our freedom really was threatened we’d be in trouble.

  10. Oh, you mean the greatest military and veterans in the whole fucking world who have not won a war on their own since WW2?
    Or a fair fight against a comparable mordern military ever since?
    Do you know what planet you are on, Vegas?

  11. Really you don’t think 911 was’nt a threat
    To our rights and freedom as americans!! Obviously you or no one close to you was in the military, these men and women fight for what we have everyday!! Your comment was so selfish and horrible!!

  12. I understand what the writer is saying …. Lets be careful who we set up on the pedestal and if he lied about thise things …. He surely lied about many other things ..Just saying everything we see is publicity … How come we arent hearing from people that actively served with him …. Even saying his platoon mates called him legend is spinned toward him being so good he is a legend .. Anyone that has served with grunts knows that a complimentary nickname is mocking you…

    Aslo th movie and book are filled with Cliches and war stories from old wars

    Sad thing is .. He probably did a great job …but I have a real problem with the obvious narcissistic pathological type lying …. makes me believe nothing i hear from or about him as its a self told story

  13. Vegas, you are the biggest pussy of all. Grab you dick and stuff it up your ignorant azzzzz you POS… What happens in vegas stays in vegas, you freakin nutwhackjob.

  14. The movie was good but, the more i read about this POS the more i dislike him. Anyone calling him a hero is wrong, he was a seal that did his job and did it well. He had mental issues but thought he can solve them by having a “cold-one” and forget about them. It is ironic that another soldier who had mental problems, killed him.

  15. I am a former socom soldier, who also served in Iraq, allow me to retort. No matter what you believe, or how “selfish and horrible” you find Steve’s comment, he’s 100% correct.
    It’s stunning joke, even among those actively fighting in the region, as well as a HUGE number of veterans, that some sheep such as yourself actually believe that this war was about 9/11! We all knew then, and know now, that it has nothing to do with nonexistent “WMD’s” or terror attacks, or viable threats to our great country.
    We did NOT fight for your “freedom.”
    We haven’t since WWII.
    It’s about oil and profit. We know it, and we fight anyway. We don’t fight for you or your fake-ass, contrived gratitude.
    We have a job to do, an obligation to follow orders of our chain of command, and we do it. We fight for the men on either side of us… The way one looks out for his family.
    So, by all means, show your gratitude and admiration for those that fight. Just get it straight, and don’t believe the hype.
    A flag sticker on your SUV doesn’t make you patriotic, nor does it prove your support for the troops.
    You wanna “support our troops?” Elect officials who won’t send us into wars for profit by way of lying to the gullible American public.
    As we paratroopers often say…”Get your head out of your fourth point of contact.”

  16. Fuck Off…Only war for our freedom was the Revolutionary War, and even that one had our Founding fathers sell us out to the British and French Bankers

  17. Live by the gun die by the gun inbred he ain’t the only american faggot coward that lied about iraq all of you fucking idiots did slaughtered your own people (how sad) 14 years ago and now that ISIS grew you american pussies won’t fight them on the ground unless there is women and children you americans will always get your asses kicked in the middle east you tell us to go home when we come to america a country that dont even belong to you white motherfuckers you want us to go back fine then get the fuck out the middle east and fuck off for good but seriously though i’m happy this son of a inbreeding cunt is dead and his being shown as a liar his white trash wife like every other white bitch in this country will just find another cock to suck
