Winona Ryder on the Word "Gay" in The Delimma: "All my gay friends use that word so (protesters will) have to go and give them a hard time too."

Winona “I’m just happy to be in a movie again” Ryder was shocked and stunned by the outcry over a ‘gay’ joke in new film “The Dilemma”, insisting she would not “be part” of a movie she thought was “offensive”.

It’s just crazy because I’m very sensitive to that issue and if I thought something was offensive I wouldn’t want to be part of it. … Plus all my gay friends use that word all the time so (protesters will) have to go and give them a hard time too. The line has, however, been pulled from the movie’s trailer following complaints.

Director Ron Howard opted to keep the scene in the final cut of the film, where Vince Vaugh’s character says “Electric cars are gay” and Ryder is glad the director refused to bow to the group’s pressure as she can’t understand the fuss surrounding the line.

Poor washed-up, crazy as bat shit Winona. Doesn’t she have a Klepto’s Anonymous meeting she should be attending or something?

But I tell you what I’d REALLY like to know is how openly-closeted lesbian Queen Latifah is going to deal with this homophobic stupidity?  Oh thats right, she is.  She’s IGNORING IT.
