Universal Pulls Vince Vaughn 'Gay' Joke From Trailer

Universal Pictures has decided to pull the trailer of Vince Vaughn‘s new movie The Dilemma after they recently came under fire for using the phrase “that’s so gay.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper slammed the pejorative use of the term, saying that he was shocked to hear it in a preview that all audiences would see.

After GLAAD expressed its concerns with the trailer, Universal decided to omit the use of the phrase in all future TV and media campaigns.

Said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios, “The use of the word ‘gay’ in this trailer as a slur is unnecessary and does nothing more than send a message of intolerance about our community to viewers.”
