Universal Removing ‘So Gay’ From The Dilemma Trailer

Anderson Cooper has spoken, and Universal has heard. The studio, which first released the trailer for Ron Howard's The Dilemma, complete with the head-scratchingly tin-eared opening line, "Ladies and gentlemen, electric cars are gay" a few weeks ago, is only now, after Anderson Cooper publicly criticized the trailer, acknowledging it might be in hideous taste and removing the trailer from theaters. Sometimes it takes a famous person to make powerful entities acknowledge when they're being horrible.[Deadline]
