SORRY ANDERSON, VINCE VAUGHN KNOWS WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT
We were NOT upset like Anderson Cooper was by the use of the word “gay” in the trailer for Vince Vaughn’s movie “Dilemma.” And frankly, we don’t think it has anything to do with bullying homosexuals. We’ve heard and seen way more outrageous gay oriented humor on Saturday Night Live and both gays and straights found it funny.
Let’s get specific: The opening scene of the trailer in question is set in a board room where Vaughn is delivering a presentation about electric cars and says, “Electric cars are gay. I mean, not homosexual gay, but my-parents-are-chaperoning the dance gay.”
Is there a gay person out there offended by this? Is the word “gay” destined to be forbidden? It was censored right out of the trailer!
Vince Vaughn obviously agrees with us – he released this statement today:
“Let me add my voice of support to the people outraged by the bullying and persecution of people for their differences, whatever those differences may be. Comedy and joking about our differences breaks tension and brings us together. Drawing dividing lines over what we can and cannot joke about does exactly that; it divides us. Most importantly, where does it STOP.”
