It's the character of Carrie herself that he's admitted a distaste for in lieu of school shootings and such. He's said so in forewords to the many reissues of the book (there must be like a jillion of 'em by now, and the original cover art for the book totally sucks!) Sort of like how he took Rage out of print, though I've never heard of any school shooter being into Carrie strangely enough. I've never heard of him expressing any problem with the De Palma movie, he's praised it many times to my knowledge. Though no movie version of Carrie has ever really gotten her rampage right--in fact, the cruddy 2002 TV movie version came the closest to showing her burning the entire town down which she does in the book. (The De Palma film ran out of $$$ to do anything like that.)
