Some think Sacha Baron Cohen’s gay character could hinder gay rights
No, I have no plans to see Bruno. I never saw Borat, mostly because the jokes in the previews sucked and I saw nothing funny about him giving a man cheese made from breast milk. If you like Sacha Baron Cohen, that’s great. But for me, he does nothing for me except make me wonder why people would want to waste their money on such a stupid attempt at comedy.
And now, according to Reuters, apparently gay activists are worried that Baron Cohen’s flamboyant gay Austrian fashion reporter character could set back gay rights by depicting gays in stereotypical ways. (Frankly, I also worry that Baron Cohen will continue to lower the bar for humor and make it more difficult than ever to find really funny movies to watch).
