Anderson Cooper Slams Vince Vaughn's Use Of 'That's So Gay'

Anderson Cooper has spoken out against Vince Vaughn‘s pejorative use of “that’s so gay” the trailer for his new film, The Dilemma.

In the film, Vince plays a man who learns that his best friend’s wife is having an affair.

“I was sitting in a movie theater over the weekend and there was a preview of [Vince Vaughn's new] movie, and in it, the actor said, ‘that’s so gay,’ and 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,” Anderson said (watch at about 5:45 in the video).

“I just find those words, those terms – we’ve got to do something to make those words unacceptable ’cause those words are hurting kids,” he added.

“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. When you’re a kid, it can change the way you see yourself and the way you think about yourself – the worth that you give to yourself. I think we really need to focus on what language we’re using and how we’re treating these kids.”
