The plot line of the movie says why.
The country was facing a second day of protests over President Donald Trump’s order banning Muslims from coming across the ocean to visit family or to become americans. The movie comes at the end of a week in which he signed an order that declared a wall will be built across the border, another thing that impeeds families. So, what does this have to do with the movie?
“The Pixar sequel to Finding Nemo follows the story of the beloved fish Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) who has short-term memory loss and journeys across the ocean to be reunited with her parents. During the trip, Dory faces several obstacles along the way, including fish tank walls, aquarium security, and being labeled and rerouted, but is ultimately reconnected with her long-lost family. Given its plot line and the timing of the viewing (which occurred at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and was confirmed by the White House” (teen voague, 2017) Twitter is having none of it.

At 3pm, Trump is hosting a screening of Finding Dory, a movie about what happens when you're separated from your family. Let that sink in.—
