Ryder Puzzled By Outcry Over Gay Remark In ‘Dilemma’ Movie.

By on 26 November, 2010


Actress Winona Ryder was shocked by the outcry over a ‘gay’ joke in new film ‘The Dilemma‘, insisting she would not “be part” of a movie she thought was “offensive”.

Officials at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) organisation demanded the axing of a scene from the upcoming movie after a preview clip showed Vince Vaughn‘s character tell a room of people, “Ladies and gentlemen, electric cars… are gay.”

Helmer Ron Howard opted to keep the scene in the final cut of the film, and Ryder is glad the director refused to bow to the group’s pressure as she can’t understand the fuss surrounding the line.

Speaking to Total Film magazine, she says:

“It’s just crazy because I’m very sensitive to that issue and if I thought something was offensive I wouldn’t want to be part of it.

“Plus all my gay friends use that word all the time so (protesters will) have to go and give them a hard time too.”

The line has, however, been pulled from the movie’s trailer following complaints.

GLAAD shouted about another offensive phrase they weren’t comfortable with, and it does beg the question whether this is political correctness gone mad, or do they have a very valid point?
