The DilemmaAfter pointed criticism from CNN host Anderson Cooper beget a flood of negative headlines, Universal Studios has told the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) that they are pulling a controversial trailer for the film 'The Dilemma' that uses the word "gay" in a derogatory way.

GLAAD expressed concerns about the trailer prior to its release to YouTube and theaters, however, the studio chose to keep the line in the preview. But now that the joke has ignited an unexpected backlash, the studio "assured us that the offensive joke will be removed from TV and media campaigns promoting the film from this point forward, including the trailer currently playing in movie theaters," according to post on GLAAD's blog.
