Chris Kelly, a comedian and the head writer of Saturday Night Live, recently wrote and directed a movie called Other People.
The movie received rave reviews, but one person wrote a review complaining that the movie had a scene that featured a gay couple having sex.
So Kelly decided to share it on Twitter over the weekend:

I loved this movie and felt that the depiction of a homosexual relationship as nothing out of the ordinary was it's most stunning element.

And about the original reviewer's "I'm not homophobic" disclaimer...
"Look, im not homophobic. I just didn't like all that gay stuff."

It never gets less awful when people say "I'm not phobic/-ist" and then proceed to show that they are indeed phobic/-ist.

This internet sleuth just may have figured out who wrote this review:
I think it's fantastic the Vice President of the United States still writes film reviews.
