Academy Awards producer Bruce Cohen has been attacked on his Wikipedia page due to his perceived role in ABC cutting away from a kiss between actors Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin during the telecast last Sunday, reports Movieline.
Cohen, who is gay, was called a "liar who claims he does not partake in the homophobia of the ABC network when clearly he does," according to the update by an anonymous user. Cohen, who produced the Oscar-winning biopic Milk,told The Advocate that any claims the cutaway was intentional are not true.
"There was nothing intentional about our cut away from Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem dancing and their kiss. We had planned to cut to a reaction shot of Javier's wife, Academy Award-winner Penelope Cruz, in the audience when they were introduced and that's what we did."
