Universal To Cut Insensitive Scene From The Dilemma Trailer!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayFilm Flickers

Universal is responding to the backlash that they've received for its inclusion of a scene, which insensitively uses the word "gay," in the trailer for the Vince Vaughn comedy The Dilemma, and has released the following statement:

"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."

We commend them for accepting responsibility and taking the appropriate measures to rectify the situation!

It doesn't seem on the surface like a big deal, but it's time we pay attention to the phrases we use and the connotations that come with them!

    Shame on Universal giving in to the whiners and haters. That is so gay what they did.



  2. 2

    Homophobia hurts straight men too, whether admitted or not. Really.



  3. 3

    HOMOPHOBIA SOLVED, WE CAN ALL GO HOME NOW!

    Lol, the joke will be funnier in the movie now because it won't be played out.



  4. 4

    Universal needed the backlash to figure this out????
    That sucks big time!
    It shouldn't even be in the movie!



  5. 5

    Nothing wrong with that scene. I'm upset that they even bothered responding to the controversy. So stupid. Quit being such a lil bitch! Oh…wait…never mind. You are! Well, there goes those gays again fucking being "gay" and ruining everything and making a big fucking deal. Jeez. What's next? NAMBLA fighting for their rights? Probably….equal rights for everyone, right Perez? So why not NAMBLA or the polygamist? Hyprocrite…



  6. 6

    It's giving the stupid people of the world (namely school-kids) license to be stupid, ignorant and hurtful.

    Good move on their part that they pulled it. I guess if it wasn't for all the gay teen bullying and suicides, it wouldn't bother me.

    That said, I still know people who think it's cool to say, "oh, that's SO gay."

    You'd think people would grow a brain and use a little more creativity here.



  7. 7

    Okay.



  8. 8

    ridiculous! So saying "gay" is insensitive? Fine, let's just call is what it is… a butt fuccer!!!



  9. 9

    there just changing the trailer , the scene is still intact in the movie ,coming from such a Vile creature as u MARIO and with the things you say here its a joke that you act so offended.



  10. 10

    WTF is wrong with people??? THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HURTFUL IN THAT SCENE. and yes, electric cars are GAY, SO FUCKING WHAT???



  11. 11

    this is stupid.



  12. 12

    …but are they leaving the remark in the actual movie?



  13. 13

    Anybody who gets offended by use of the word gay to mean lame or stupid is just over sensitive and looking for something to bitch about.

  14. chiro says – reply to this


    14

    Seriously?! When people say that's so "Gay" they're not trying to offend Homosexulas it just a phrase. This is just going too far. Why don't you just walk around in a plastic bubble being as they are ULTRA SENSITIVE!!!!!!



  15. 15

    its so gay that they gave in



  16. 16

    Who cares there's worst things in the word than gay crybabies go eat a dick homo



  17. 17

    That's gayer than butt sex between two consenting adult men with their tips frosted



  18. 18

    LMFAO. "insensitive?" People are way too sensitive these days. This whole article is gay. lol.



  19. 19

    I dont know about all of you…but when someone says "thats gay", the first thing i DONT think of is them making fun of, or being insensitive to homosexuals. Along with gay meaning homosexual..it also means many other different things. I think its stupid that this was even brought up. Plus the movie trailer even clearly states "not in a homosexual way". YOu want to be treated equally yet you are asking people for special treatment just because you are gay. If you were really proud of being gay, you wouldnt be offended by this.



  20. 20

    How can people not see why using gay as an insult could be offensive? It is used because it associated with something odd, effeminate, undesirable, etc. In fact, EVERY SINGLE WORD that is used to identify homosexual (yes, including homosexual) people is also used as an insult.

    Do you people seriously think that the Jews, Christians, or blacks would be silent if the name of their group was used as a pejorative in movies? Oh, right, saying something like "jewed over" isn't hurtful to jews at all. It's just an insult that magically appeared into the lexicon over night, just like "gay".



  21. 21

    Perhaps you should be more sensitive with your phrases as well. Of course you're right about the connotations of words and I completely agree that saying something is ' gay' is wrong. But then again… Isn't it wrong to call a 17-year old child Slutty constantly? What are the connotations of that. So, please don'n be a hypocrite and start making changes for yourself as well.



  22. 22

    I bet perez wants to take credit for this!



  23. 23

    I don't agree with people using the term "that's so gay" etc. at all. But I don't understand why its ok with you to call women derogatory names yet you're so fucking offended if someone says something innapropriate about a gay person. You started calling Evan Rachel Wood Evan Rachel "Whore" when she was 18. You used to call Miley "Slutty Cyrus". I don't see you calling men sluts and whores. I am so fucking sick of your double standards.



  24. 24

    How PC of them. How dare they offend Perez Hilton and Anderson Cooper. Anderson Cooper has the lowest ratings in cable news and can only get attention by being a big baby. Yet Perez calls Sarah Palin by his sexist nickname for her "Sexy Sarah". So I guess gays are the only ones in America that get a free pass on being offended. GLAD so be so proud of Perez for painting homosexuals as big cry baby sissys.



  25. 25

    Universal - I was going to see this movie in theaters, but now that you took out this trailer, I will not see the movie…either in the theaters or on TV. The fact that you bowed down to ridiculous claims that his was a homophobic remark is insane.



  26. 26

    Perez Hilton is a bully - plain and simple. He has no right calling ANYone else a bully. He has recently turned his website into a gay activist site, which I'm not interested in. If he wants to perpetuate his agenda (which I agree with) he should create a new site, like he has with his Coco stuff. If he continues to push this crap, I'm out of here - too many good gossip sites. He is the antithesis of what homosexuals need as a "leader" - he is irrational, mean-spririted and supremely annoying to listen to and watch. Keep it up Perez, and you are done.



  27. 27

    I saw it last month, and I can tell you, it's an awful movie. As far as the scene that they're cutting, I think it's a wise choice. I'm a straight 27 yr old woman, and I actually found the scene to be edging on offensive… and I don't have thin skin and have been guilty of using the word "gay" to describe things as lame like an ignorant teenager. However, they used it EXCESSIVELY, and it's used to put down several business competitors who are looked at as "less than" in an attempt to emasculate them for marketing purposes. It was like, enough already! I felt really uncomfortable after that scene. The laughter in the audience eventually became stifled after the 4th or 5th time it was said too. If it did that to me, I can only imagine how it would affect someone who is gay or struggling with their sexual identity. The movie is a piece of shit anyway, and they know it. The fact that they're even releasing a statement about it is just a PR stunt to cash in on all the LGBT awareness in the media as of late. Don't let the fact that it's a Ron Howard movie fool you.



  28. 28

    Interesting. . . wasn't it the author of this blog who came under fire last year for using an offensive slur against a member of the Black-Eyed Peas? Hypocrisy much?



  29. 29

    THAT'S HELLA GAY!



  30. 30

    GAY PEOPLE ARE TOO SENSITIVE - FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR ALL - OR LIVE IN GAYNESS!!



  31. 31

    ANDERSON COOPER AND PEREZ ARE HELLA GAY GAY MEN!!



  32. 32

    That's gay.



  33. 33

    I swear people complain and cry over everything. How the fuck was that scene insensitive??? Please.



  34. 34

    Careful everyone. It is a crime in this country to be offensive in ANY way…especially to alternative lifestyles. Failure to observe this warning will signal the wrath of the PC Cops.
    _______
    Joking aside, the world has become utterly ridiculous.

    Honestly, this is a bit much don't you think.



  36. 36

    What the hell's the point if they're gonna leave the line in the movie?! Stupid. Did you know that NBC owns Universal? I'm just sayin is all…



  37. 37

    The PC police are alive and well. What happened to Freedom of Speech.



  38. 38

    That ugly Vince Vaughn should be so lucky if he was 'gay'. IF he was, he would be good looking, and not so FAT ! Also, he wouldn't have the B.O. problem I am told he has. The Fat Fuck !



  39. 39

    loved the hawks scene, woo chicago



  40. 40

    You don't have to be homo to be gay.

    Gayest people I know sign my paychecks.



  41. 41

    is it offensive like when you call straight men gay? Or perhaps call women whores? Maybe when you call people fugly. Is that offensive too???



  42. 42

    Oh, "it's time we pay attention to the phrases we use", is it? You mean like, "gay face, whore, slut"?



  43. 43

    UMM, HE FLAT OUT SAID, "I MEAN NOT HOMOSEXUAL GAY…".



  44. 44

    When was the last time Vince Vaughn was in a good film?



  45. 45

    Re: gorgeous_chik7

    I heard you were the token female member of NAMBLA. How is it, honey?



  46. 46

    Tons of movies and TV shows use the word "gay" as an insult. They think THAT'S comedy. But what other group could you get away with by using their name as an insult? "Hey, that crap movie is so Italian." "I hate that song. It's so black." Come on. It has to stop. In a week where gay teens are killing themselves left and right, you have to ask where are they getting the idea that being gay is bad. Uh, EVERYWHERE.

    Re: WatcherOne
    Yep- but then again its OK to be a hypocrite like Mario. Plus don't forget Anderson Cooper who whined about it. Really? Then came out for crying out loud.

    And……… if this scene is SOOOOOOO offensive, then why are you posting it? People are offended by your homosexuality and find it morally wrong but they have to accept you.



  48. 48

    SERIOUSLY???? WTF????, really, this is just getting outta control, so now black, asian, gay, lesbian, and any other person who isn't a white heterosexua can be all up in arms cuz of a word??? fuck off already.



  49. 49

    Good Lord!!!
    Vince calls electric cars "gay"!!! Not people.
    shame on Universal for placating a bunch of whinning babies.



  50. 50

    That is so gay.

    Ignore and it goes away. Make it an issue and give it credence.



  51. 51

    So I get why Perez is so upset by this rightly so, but I find it interesting nothing has been said about Taylor Swift's "insensitive" lyrics in Picture to Burn. In case you arent sure which one it is : I realize you love yourself more than you could ever love me. So go and tell your friends that I'm obsessive and crazy. That’s fine; i'll tell mine you're gay and by the way….

    Insensitive much?



  52. 52

    Re: Cattac – "Gay" is the nicest term ever used to classify homos! Kinda like how "plump" is a nice way of describing fat people. Get over yourself! Quit being a victim! Grow some balls you obvious "bottom"!



  53. 53

    i watched the trailer and it didn't merit the backlash… and i'm all for gay rights! perez, you've gotten away with saying things that are far worse and truly OFFENSIVE. anywho… i LOVE Vince Vaughn and i'm looking forward to this film!

    Re: JasonDiggy – suicide is NOT only a "gay" teen issue… according to the CDC, "Suicides among young people continue to be a serious problem. Each year in the U.S., thousands of teenagers commit suicide. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 15-to-24-year-olds, and the sixth leading cause of death for 5-to-14-year-olds. Teenagers experience strong feelings of stress, confusion, self-doubt, pressure to succeed, financial uncertainty, and other fears while growing up. For some teenagers, divorce, the formation of a new family with step-parents and step-siblings, or moving to a new community can be very unsettling and can intensify self-doubts. For some teens, suicide may appear to be a solution to their problems and stress…"



  55. 55

    Too bad people dont think about being sensitive when talking about obese people. Guess sensitivity is situation specific? /sarcasm off



  56. 56

    Re: azulle – And studies have found that about one in three teenaged suicides is by someone who is gay or lesbian.

  57. Bytch says – reply to this


    57

    that is ridiculous and gay. "That's retarded" is something used to represent colloquial language, and "That's gay" is the same. Nobody should have to CENSOR themselves because of over-sensitivity. People make fun of blacks, whites, women, men, children and handicapped people in movies, but no…GAY people shouldn't be touched? Suck it the fuck up like the rest of us pop culture targets, NOBODY is safe when it comes to comedy, and CENSORSHIP SUCKS.



  58. 58

    I know the 90's are back, but can we leave the uptight PC attitude behind? Electric cars are kind of gay. Nobody (gay or straight) is getting laid when they pull up to their date's house in an electric car.



  59. 59

    " but it's time we pay attention to the phrases we use"

    Hmm sort of like how Mario calls ppl hoes? Pot kettle black



  60. 60

    "It doesn't seem on the surface like a big deal, but it's time we pay attention to the phrases we use and the connotations that come with them!"
    **************

    Practice what you fucking preach!! Did you forget about what you called Will.i.am? You are such a fucking hypocrite!
    **************

    Don't you think these groups are just getting way too sensitive? Growing up in the 70s and 80s, we used to call things gay, but we meant it to mean "stupid". There was a time when gay was used to describe "merry" or "happy". I'm also getting tired of this bullshit of "It Gets Better". Why is it directed at only gay teens? It should be directed at teens period! Kids get bullied for a multitude of reasons.



  61. 61

    Universal is so gay for removing that trailer … people are WAY too sensitive lately, what's this country coming to.



  62. 62

    i dont approve of any kind of homophobia,but with that said, is this now the beginning of the end of free speech?ive seen many movies w controversial statments in them.do u not think bitch,slut or skank offends women?but thats in plenty of films!thats their right to free speech.if u want your freedom to live your life and sexuality as u please, u have to except all american rights.whether u like them or not.



  63. 63

    People are overly sensitive.. that is ridiculous to make a big deal about this.



  64. 64

    Re: breejo87 – totally



  65. 65

    Whatever happened to Sticks and Stones may break my bones…??? All this drama for what? That scene was hilarious. People bitching over the gay thing…QUEEN LATIFAH WAS A PARTICIPANT!!! oMg! Drowing yourselves in a cup of water.

    The issue isn't gay kids being picked on. The REAL ISSUE IS kids being picked on!!! Coincidentally 6 gay ones killed themselves this month. But there is a teen suicide every 16 minutes in this country! What about them?



  66. 66

    wow, whining about a movie that'll be forgotten 3 months after it comes out. that's fucking gay.



  67. 67

    Will the scene be cut from the movie?



  68. 68

    Re: Kodes100 – It shouldn't be in the movie? Are you fucking kidding me.

    Insensitive or not, censorship is never the answer.



  69. 69

    Re: MarMars – EXACTLY !!! Perez has a habit of calling women whores and sluts but then again he's jealous of their vaginas.



  70. 70

    It's not cool to use the word gay as something negative. And vince vaugh it way too fucking old to be talking like that. I'm glad that they pulled this as the ad and all the haters who have learned the mis-use of the world politically correct can kiss my ass. Homophobia is disgusting and calling anything that's shitty or you disapprove of "gay" is fcked. Period. Let's call anything thats shitty or not cool Straight. No but self serving scumbags would never do it. Bullies and their allowers should be kicked out of schools and their parents fined.



  71. 71

    Re: hellogee – God you are a piece of bigoted trailer trash. fck off.

  73. 73

    Re: bbtaddpole – You are just so open minded and a cool person I can tell. Please not the sarcasm you bigoted piece of republican trailer park asshole christo/fascist hick. How is that for pc? Kids calling eveyrthing they hate gay is not cool and parents need to step up and stop this disgusting habit. 'Anderson Cooper comes from the Vanderbuilt family so he could have not worked and bathed in luxury all day if he wanted to. Good thing he embodies the hard working ethic that scumbag fascists like you claim to love.



  74. 74

    Re: GiseLita – Actually gay kids commit suicide at a much higher rate and are picked on much more violently. If you cared about the truth other than a homophobic agenda you would know this. Know how to use google much?



  75. 75

    Re: Roccomagoo – Look gay kids are being picked on guido and if your bottom line is that Perez picks on movie stars and thats is just like bullying young kids at school you are an idiot. Your defense of this disgusting and vulgar hatemongering violent habit of calling anything shitty gay is indefensible and only scumbags like you defend it.

    JUst notice the homophobic trash and the clue-less morons defending hate. It's disgusting and telling . Start kicking out bullies out of schools and make their parents have to pay for private school. Start paying kids to video-tape bullies and their allowers and start holding parents accountable with fees. You will end bullying quickly. Everyone should have the freedom to atttend school without harassment. Period ,end of discussion.

  81. 81

    Ridiculous! Universal checked with several gay groups & they said ok. Anderson Cooper goes on Ellen & complains and universal folded up. Electric Cars Are Gay!



  82. 82

    People are so sensitive these days it's ridiculous.



  83. 83

    Re: knowitall – You are soo gay (both meanings)!!! Go kick rocks or something. You guys want to be treated equally?? Well everything in this world has a price asshole!! And it really wasn't that serious. And people don't say 'Oh thats soo straight' because 'GaY' sounds waayyy better.



  84. 84

    If you have such a problem with the use of the word then i would recommend you stop calling Derek Hough "Gay face". It sends the wrong message



  85. 85

    Re: knowitall – Wow, you are such a hypersensitive, judgmental PIECE OF SHIT–how funny that you are trying to portray yourself as such a 'champion' for gay rights and issues while you systematically hurl nearly every insult in the book!! (fat, trailer trash, Republican, bitch, kyke, uneducated, homophobic, 'clue-less' (I think you meant clueless–who's uneducated now, bitch? LOL!), guido, christo/fascist…what a hateful little prick you are! What a hypocritical asshat–someone obviously thinks he's better than just about everyone on Earth…

    P.S. I'm pretty sure the LGBT community–or ANY community, for that matter LOL–wouldn't want someone like you 'representing' their cause…your blatant hatred and hypocrisy do FAR more harm than good! Crawl back into the hateful, malicious hole y



  86. 86

    As I was saying, knowitall–crawl back into the hateful, malicious hole you climbed out of!



  87. 87

    Remember when the word "gay" meant jovial or happy? It's in all the old films.

    Society in the 21st century basically uses the term "gay" for replacement of the following words: stupid, dumb, idiotic, lame, imbecile, foolish, dimwitted, moronic, slow, brainless, non-acceptable and silly, cool, awesome. BOY: "I can't go I have homework" GIRL: OMG that is like sooo gay!"

    I do not think they intentionally said the word gay to mean homosexuals.



  88. 88

    The point is that the guy in the scene is supposed to be obnoxious, saying something crass and obtuse. There is no reason to cut that scene, even if it's just from the trailer.



  89. 89

    Re: JBWOWW – Wow so you didn't like my posts to the bigots. I don't give a fuck bitch. The fact that you have singled me out for taking on the bigots is laughable and the hate you spewed at me again is insane for such a hateful hypocrite like you.. Other than kyke which I used as a joke because I wanted to see how a bitch who was so insensitive towards gay issues felt about anti-semitism being that she had Paul Rudd who is jewish and I love. I"m half jewish and would never used that word. MY name calling towards the bigots that you defend was to show them that they shouldn't be bothered either because after all they are not pc as they claim. But the fact is trash like you is always hypocritical and yell politcally correct when you slam gay. Oh but they get mad if you dare call other religous groups, races any name. I'm sure this is all above your Iq level anyway. Oh and the only thing I stick by are disgusting republicans who harass gays on every level. Until we start seeing crude names about other groups in the so called liberal media I don't want to hear a word from hatermongering shit like you.



  90. 90

    Oh please, are you kidding me? It's funny, and what does it matter if it's in the trailer or not since it is in the movie? Maybe people should stop being so sensitive about stuff that doesn't even matter.



  91. 91

    I dunno about everyone else, but when referring to something being stupid, I just change the spelling to "ghey" kinda like the whole fat/phat thing. I can see where people would get sensitive, but he did explain it.

  92. ass says – reply to this


    92

    This is the shit that pisses me off about gay rights. You want to be treated equal, yet you have no problem bitching and moaning and causing a scene about something like this just to get your way. There are things about me that I'd rather not be teased or harassed about, and that stuff comes up in movies and tv shows all the time, but you don't see me complaining about it and going after the movie companies.
    -
    We get it. You're here, you're queer, and we ARE used to it, now move the fuck on with your lives and quit using your homosexuality as a crutch, pulling it out like a race card every fucking opportunity you get.
