The Dilemma is an upcoming movie that stars Vince Vaughn and Kevin James. In a trailer for the comedy, Vaughn's character uses the word "gay" in a derogatory fashion.
Upon seeing this promo, Anderson Cooper shared his concern over such a quote, going off to Ellen DeGeneres over how language plays a critical role in the mindsets of impression children.
"I was shocked that not only that they put it in the movie, but that they thought that it was okay to put that in a preview for the movie to get people to go and see it," he told Ellen.
"We've got to do something to make those words unacceptable because those words are hurting kids... the words people use and the things people say about other kids online, it enters into their internal dialogue."
