Zoolander 2 facing boycott over internet outrage

1530743062773881231Sarah Rose, has created an online petition calling for Zoolander 2 to be boycotted. In the petition she writes: “By hiring a cis actor to play a non-binary individual in a clearly negative way, the film endorses harmful and dangerous perceptions of the queer community at large,” Ms Rose adds. Through signing the petition, Ms Rose is hoping to tell “Paramount Pictures, Ben Stiller, and Benedict Cumberbatch that mocking ransgender/androgyne/gender fluid individuals is not okay.” Seriously?! All of these idiots that seek out anything and everything to get offended by are doing more of a disservice to transgender people than any movie ever will.

There are plenty of things in the real world that they should be focused on before being offended by a Zoolander movie of all things. Ben Stiller is taking the piss out of everybody involved in the fashion world, this is clearly a parody of the absurdity of the fashion world these days and not transphobic at all. Political correctness is like a cancer that is invading everything these days. And it seems to give every idiot on the internet the “right” to be offended by something, even when that something is a light-hearted comedy movie like Zoolander. Seriously people get a fucken grip on reality why don’t you! I will leave you with this rather insightfull quote from Stephen Fry:
