21,000 people signed the petition to boycott the new film Zoolander 2 due to be released on 16 February 2016 in UK. The film director Justin Theroux claims to be ‘hurt’ by this reaction to his latest movie.
The outrage against the movie comes after the trailer portrayed Benedict Cumberbatch playing a transgender model called All. The transgender community claimed this is ‘dangerous’ and ‘harmful’.
In the trailer All is seen talking in a provocative manner that is followed by a controversial dialogue “I think he is asking you if you have a hotdog or a bun?” However Justin Theroux was quick to defend his script “I take great care in the jokes I write, and the umbrage being taken is out of the context of the scene”.
In Zoolander 2 Justing Theroux is taking more risks than just the illustration of transgender community. Justin Bieber is set to have his first acting premiere in the movie playing a star that is quickly assassinated.
Justin’s recent performance on Monday, 7th December at Toronto’s Danforth Music hall left fans in tears. It was an intimate acoustic performance and reminded many of Justin at the beginning of his career.
He said; “I think this is the best crowd I’ve ever been a part of,” Bieber told the more than 1,500 screaming fans in the crowd. “I’m having a great time up here tonight.”
All of the proceedings of the night went to Stratford House of Blessing who provide food to those in need.
However Justin Bieber’s constant controversial behavior is still on top of media’s radar list. Just couple hours ago he posted a picture on Instagram of a young beautiful girl now claimed to be Cindy Kimberley with a caption ‘OMG who is this?’
No further evidence has been produced to show whether Justin Bieber decided to contact the brunette and take things further. The similarities between Cindy Kimberley and Justin Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez is obvious and many wonder whether he is doing this to cause jealousy on Selena’s part or attract media attention.
Zoolander 2 is set to be a hit at box offices with the amount of media attention it is attracting already. Whether Justin Theroux is happy with the kind of attention it is receiving it is unknown. The trailer can be found online, the movie will feature other famous starts such as Penelope Cruz, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller.
