'Dilemma' trailer pulled after Anderson Cooper criticizes 'gay' bomb
He told Ellen DeGeneres Thursday (Oct 7) that he was horrified to see the trailer in a movie theater this weekend in which Vince Vaughn's character says "That's so gay."
"I was shocked that not only that they put it in the movie, but that they thought that it was okay to put that in a preview for the movie to get people to go and see it."
He finds those words unacceptable because they hurt kids. "Someone else I talked to recently said that the words people use and the things people say about other kids online, it enters into their internal dialogue."
According to The Wrap, Universal announced today that it has now removed the offending trailer and replaced it with a new one.
