SOMEBODY GOT TOLD.
Like all great vanguards, Vince Vaughn has come under fire for his radical views. The funniest part of the unfunny trailer for The Dilemma features Vaughn addressing a room with the line, "Electric cars… are gay," and now, a month later, controversy has sparked.
Rumored electric car lover Anderson Cooper went on "Ellen" and flagged the line as offensive. "I was shocked that not only they put it in the movie," Cooper told DeGeneres. "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." Just like the trailer for Vaughn’s Couple’s Retreat, the offensive material will be removed. Not to defend Vaughn’s fictional choice of words, but I have to agree he has a point. A car you plug into the wall? C’mon. (Deadline)
