LOS ANGELES (AP) — Larry Flynt, who turned Hustler magazine into an adult entertainment empire while championing First Amendment rights, has died at age 78. His nephew, Jimmy Flynt Jr., told The Associated Press Flynt died Wednesday in Los Angeles. As the founder of one of the most explicit adult-oriented magazines, Flynt constantly challenged the establishment and became a target for the religious right and feminist groups. His publishing and financial successes were offset by tragedy, including a 1978 shooting that left him paralyzed. His life was depicted in the acclaimed 1996 film “The People vs. Larry Flynt.”
