So If Winona Ryder Has Black Friends Who Say ‘Nigger,’ She’d Use That Word Too?

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.

—Winona Ryder not understanding what all the fuss was about the "so gay" line in The Dilemma, which she stars in, because after all she would never "be part" of a movie she thought was so "offensive" (though I'm pretty sure S1m0ne offended me to my core). Ah yes, the but my gay friends excuse! I haven't seen that one in a long time. [via]
