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.

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)
