"Gay" Word to Be Removed From Vince Vaughn Trailer
A trailer for the upcoming Vince Vaughn movie The Dilemma -- which upset Anderson Cooper because it included the word "gay" in a negative connotation -- is being replaced.
In a statement Friday, a Universal Pictures rep first told The Hollywood Reporter: "The teaser trailer for 'The Dilemma' was not intended to cause anyone discomfort. In light of growing claims that the introduction to the trailer is insensitive, it is being replaced. A full trailer, which has been in the works for some time, will post online later today."
The original trailer featured Vaughn, 40, saying, "Ladies and gentlemen, electric cars ... are gay."
Cooper, 45 (who has declined to reveal his sexual orientation), told Ellen DeGeneres this week the terms are "unacceptable cause those words are hurting kids."
