Anderson Cooper vs. Vince Vaughn

Journalist and author Anderson Cooper has criticized Vince Vaughn’s pejorative use of “that’s so gay” the trailer for his new film, “The Dilemma”, set to be released on 14 January 2011 in USA. In the upcoming film, Vince plays a man (Ronny Valentine) who discovers that his best friend’s wife is having an affair.

The host of Anderson Cooper 360° in CNN said: “I 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, ‘that’s so gay,’ 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… we’ve got to do something to make those words unacceptable cause those words are hurting kids.”

He added: “Someone 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 you’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 we’re using and how we’re treating these kids.”

Anderson Cooper is the younger son of the artist and designer Gloria Vanderbilt and a member of the prominent Vanderbilt family of New York.

Check the trailer of The Dilemma below:

The movie cast will include: Channing Tatum, Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, Vince Vaughn, Kevin James, Queen Latifah.

The weekend shopping session comes just after Britney was smacked with a $55,000 lawsuit at the hands of former nanny Ferial Zaltash.
