CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has spoken out about Vince Vaughn dropping the â€œthatâ€™s so gayâ€ line in the trailer for his new film, The Dilemma.
Anderson tells Ellen DeGeneres, â€œI was sitting in a movie theater over the weekend and there was a preview of [Vince Vaughn's new] movie, and in it, the actor said, â€˜thatâ€™s so gay,â€™ and I was shocked that not only that they put it in the movie, 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. I just find those words, those terms - weâ€™ve got to do something to make those words unacceptable â€™cause those words are hurting kids."
Anderson added, â€œSomeone else I talked to recently said that the words people use and the things people say about other kids online, it enters into their internal dialogue. When youâ€™re a kid, it can change the way you see yourself and the way you think about yourself - the worth that you give to yourself. I think we really need to focus on what language weâ€™re using and how weâ€™re treating these kids.â€
What do you think? Did Vince go too far?
Love ya Anderson!
