Sacha Baron Cohen in 'Bruno'

Sacha Baron Cohen in 'Bruno'

I have recently read that GLAAD (otherwise known as the Gay, Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is a little bit ticked off by Sacha Baron Cohen’s new flick Bruno … set in the same style as his mega-hit Borat … but, following the life of an Austrian gay fashionista whom (among other things) adopts a black baby he has named OJ and attempts to create a sex-tape with presidential candidate Ron Paul.

I can understand how people in the GLBT-community could be offended by the movie … Baron Cohen is known for pushing the envelope, however, I’ve always believed he has used his multiple persona’s to show how ridiculous stereotypes can be … Nevertheless, I can see how this could be misconstrued into pushing homophobia into America, rather than helping the cause.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for the film to come out and see what people have a problem with … Baron Cohen has also caused a stir with his recent GQ magazine photo shoot where he posed in a very risque football uniform with a bunch of high schoolers … Even though it was reported that everyone involved had a great time and the team’s parents were forced to sign a consent form … the district is still punishing people.

It just goes to show that there are still people who get pissed off at things that seem too ‘adult’ … We’re always going to be in a society where high school is treated like a PG-rated film, but are we not living in an R-rated reality? I mean, come on …

I think Perez Hilton’s stupidity should be scolded more than Baron Cohen’s movie … Hilton got punched by Black Eyed Peas manager for supposedly calling Will.i.Am a ‘fucking faggot’ … and after GLAAD demanded an apology, Hilton said he deserved one for their lack of support …

I’m sorry Hilton … but, when you use a derogatory word against someone else and justify it, then you’re a fucking idiot … I have no respect for assholes and for a community that is in desperate need of role models, you’ve proven to be a driving force against our fight for equality. Plus, you’re rich and famous for making other people feel like shit … Congrats on being a parasite!
