Is Will
Smith’s Hancock Homophobic?

A scene in Will
Smith’s new blockbuster Hancock takes a
“cheap, unfunny shot at gay people,”
according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against
Defamation.

Ireland’s
Breaking News website reported Thursday that the offending
scene involves Smith’s character dismissing images of
other superheroes, saying, “Homo. Homo in red.
Norwegian homo.”

GLAAD told
Breaking News that “the slur sends a message that
it's OK to discriminate against gay people.”

Columbia
Pictures, the studio behind the action flick, refused to
comment. (The Advocate)
