Universal Pictures may have scrapped the original trailer for "The Dilemma," which featured Vince Vaughn's character calling electric cars "gay," but the actor doesn't seem to agree with their decision.In case you missed it, the "new progressive agenda" is now coming down on anyone who dares uses the word "gay" (which stsrted out as meaning "happy") as a joke. And anyone who dares use is it is not only 'homophobic' but condones anti-gay bullying. Ridiculous. Good for Vaughn's refusal to bow down to the PC crowd and their partners in the gay mafia.
In a statement released by Deadline, the actor acknowledges the harm in prejudices like homophobia while pointing out silenced jokes that make note of them do more harm than good.
"Let me add my voice of support to the people outraged by the bullying and persecution of people for their differences," says Vaughn, "whatever those differences may be. Comedy and joking about our differences breaks tension and brings us together. Drawing dividing lines over what we can and cannot joke about does exactly that; it divides us. Most importantly, where does it stop."
