Hancock Makers Accused Of Homophobia
Will Smith’s new movie Hancock has been accused of homophobia by gay rights campaigners.
Bosses at The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) allege a scene in the superhero movie takes a “cheap, unfunny shot at gay people”.
The offending scene involves Smith’s washed up crime fighter dismissing other superhero images, saying, “Homo. Homo in red. Norwegian Homo.” GLAAD chiefs claim “the slur sends a message that it’s okay to discriminate against gay people“.
Representatives for Columbia Pictures, the studio behind the movie, have refused to comment.
