Universal Yanks Vince Vaugn that's 'So Gay' Trailer

Universal Pictures has decided to pull the trailer for the Vince Vaughn comedy The Dilemma and replace it with a new one later today. Universal Studios plans to replace the trailer for The Dilemma, the Ron Howard-directed comedy that stars Vince Vaughn, after Anderson Cooper and others have expressed objection.

Universal Pictures has decided to pull the trailer for the Vince Vaughn comedy The Dilemma and replace it with a new one later today, reports website TMZ.

A rep for Universal Pictures tells TMZ, "The teaser trailer for The Dilemma was not intended to cause anyone discomfort. In light of growing claims that the introduction to the trailer is insensitive, it is being replaced. A full trailer, which has been in the works for some time, will post online later today."

The Advocate previously reported:

Universal Studios plans to replace the trailer for The Dilemma, the Ron Howard-directed comedy that stars Vince Vaughn, after Anderson Cooper and others have expressed objection, reports entertainment website Deadline.com.

In the first scene of the trailer, Vaughn's character says "Ladies and Gentlemen, electric cars are so gay,"to a packed conference room. Cooper criticized the trailerwhile discussing school bullying on Ellen DeGeneres's talk show earlier this week.

Deadline's Nikki Finke reports she has learned the studio will respond to the pressure from Cooper and others and plans to alter the trailer.

She writes "However, studio executives still appear bewildered by the situation 'because we showed the trailer to gay groups like GLAAD and gay executives here and gays in our marketing department and no one was offended and everyone had a positive response.'"
