Ron Howard refuses to cut gay joke from film

Vince Vaughn in The Dilemma
A joke about 'gay' cars will stay in Ron Howard's film The Dilemma.

GLAAD and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper have criticised the movie for a scene in which actor Vince Vaughn makes a joke about electric cars being gay.

Vaughn is seen telling a boardroom: "Electric cars are gay. Not homosexual gay, but my-parents-are-chaperoning-the-dance gay."

Howard say The Dilemma is a comedy for grown-ups, not kids.

He has told the Los Angeles Times, "It is a slight moment in The Dilemma meant to demonstrate an aspect of our lead character's personality, and we never expected it to represent our intentions or the point of view of the movie or those of us who made it."
