If you’re like us, or anyone normal, you probably saw the Zoolander 2 trailer and laughed, because the characters are so satirical and ridiculous(ly good-looking), how can you not laugh? Seriously, watch this trailer. Dare you not to LOL.
That was it. A movie so silly it trusts people just because they’re hot. This is the movie from people who also brought you a freak-gasoline fight, and self-discovery while looking at a reflection. In a spoon. However if you’re a SJW or some other leftist-American, you probably signed a petition because of the movie’s transphobic microagression in the form of Cumberbatch. Also, we’re laughing at you. Laughing at you so hard.
Trans rights activists have criticised the portrayal of an androgynous model played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the fashion caper Zoolander 2, which sees Owen Wilson ask the star’s character if he has a “hotdog or a bun”.
More than 9,000 people have now signed the Care2 petition saying they will boycott the film on the basis of the trailer’s portrayal of Cumberbatch’s character in the highly anticipated sequel.
In the newly released trailer, Cumberbatch is seen briefly in a long dark wig with shaved eyebrows and wearing a white fur coat, introduced as “the world’s biggest supermodel, All”.
Rather than take this movie for what it is, mindless entertainment and easy laughs, the SJWs signed a meaningless petition about a fake character in a fake movie about fake people. This “controversy” ranks right up there with bananas as trigger warnings and mom jokes. In other words, not.
Boycotting over imaginary transgessions is so hot right now…
