Vince Vaughn issued a statement to Deadline regarding the controversy surrounding the trailer for The Dilemma, which came under fire for featuring a joke that called electric cars “gay.” Said Vaughn, “Let me add my voice of support to the people outraged by the bullying and persecution of people for their differences, whatever those differences may be. Comedy and joking about our differences breaks tension and brings us together. Drawing divided lines over what we can and cannot joke about does exactly that; it divides us. Most importantly, where does it stop.”
