The highly anticipated trailer for Zoolander 2 got fans excited for the sequel when it dropped last month, but it also managed to spark major backlash for its portrayal of a "non-binary" character!

Some LGBT activists called for a boycott of the upcoming sequel after taking offense to a scene featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as an androgynous supermodel called "All."

Justin Theroux, who co-penned the script for the comedy, has responded to the criticism, promising that the scene was meant as satire and was taken out of context!

Speaking to The Wrap, Jennifer Aniston's husband said:

"I don't even know what to make of it, because it hurts my feelings in a way. I take great care in the jokes I write, and the umbrage being taken is out of the context of the scene. I wish people would see the movie first. Satire is a thing that points out the idiots, and we went through it on Tropic Thunder with the ‘R' word."

Back in 2008, The Leftovers actor got heat from disabled groups who blasted Robert Downey Jr.'s repeated use of the word "retard" in Tropic Thunder!

But according to Theroux, that was used as a comedic device to comment on the ugliness of people who use that word! He added:
