  1. I'm still not sold on Sacha Baron Cohen as a comic "genius"

  2. Is Towleroad being paid to run all this "Bruno" crap everyday ??? Really, enough is enuff. I expect a constant dribble of this kind of fluff from Perez Hilton or some Hollywood PR shop, but GIVE US A BREAK . Stop all your Bruno promo every day!

  3. Poor Drake. It's going to be a long summer.

  4. I for one can't wait to see it. I find him hilarious.

  5. I get why he is the character, but i still find it completely embarassing

  6. Enough with Baron-Cohen. He's an unfunny ass, and he's not doing us any favors.

  7. Towleroad really has a hard on for this guy no?

    Love is blind it seems after all.

  8. I have to agree with Drake; this is getting to be long in the tooth.

    Drake, look on the bright side; once the movie is released, Baron Cohen will be into something else and gay "Bruno" will be dropped faster than the "Obama Pride" sticker.

  9. This Bruno crap was funny for about 5 seconds. I can't wait for the movie to come out so that we don't have to hear about his annoying media stunts anymore.

  10. You guys might want to avoid Towleroad tomorrow. I heard that Bruno will be visiting Tehran to help hang gay Muslims. And on Friday, he'll be in Wyoming marching on the grave of Matthew Shepard.

  11. The movie is a commercial enterprise. If its makers want publicity, let them buy an ad.

  12. Yes, Andy is clearly getting paid for this ridiculous, nonstop promotion. Apparently, he doesn't respect his readers enough to tag these posts as "sponsored."

  13. enough of this guy. all he is doing hurting us!

  14. Leave it to you queens to supply the "whine" for Bruno's cheese.

  15. Absolutely cannot wait to see this movie! Bruno is an awesome satirical character. And people ARE allowed to satirise gays, just like every other grouping of people is satirised. Cohen is a comic genius as far as I'm concerned.

    Many, including myself, are simply wondering why Towleroad follows his every move. He is a commercial creation and these posts are pure promotion.

    And, regarding your satire comment: This would ring more true if it were a gay man creating the character. Seeing as it's a straight man, I think it's open for debate. If this were a white man "satirizing" another race in such a stereotypical and unflattering way, it would not be acceptable.

  17. So sick of "Bruno." Not funny in any way.

    Posted by: homer | Jun 17, 2009 5:38:07 PM

  18. I'm actually getting more tired of the Bruno debates than anything else. Talk about repetitive.

  19. Matt,
    You must be new here.

    Brokeback Mountain, Banksy, Robert Pattinson, Carrie Prejean, Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham... Towleroad has run far most posts about those topics. Posting updates is sorta the point of a blog. If you don't like it, you and the other losers here could go somewhere else. I suggest the mall... maybe you could buy yourselves a sense of humor.

    PS: You don't have a clue what satire is. When you get done at the mall, go back to high school.

  20. Quite frankly, deep down, every time I see these "Bruno" posts, I really really wish that Sacha Baron Cohen would one day get very, very SEVERELY gay-bashed while in character, with the cameras rolling.

    Let him walk a mile in those particular shoes, (or limp? carted off to the hospital?) then we'll all see just how god-damned funny it all is.

    It would be a real "learning moment" and a "life lesson" all rolled up in one (not to mention great publicity for the movie and get across a point about the realities of some peoples' lives) hey, everyone wins....!

    If there were no Matthew Shepard, I suppose that horrible Bruno character would probably be so much funnier.

    You know, like how goose-stepping and 'Seig Heil'-ing like a Nazi would also be funny, but for a few "minor" mishaps at some place called Aushwitz or Buchenwald....

    /end rant.

    Kinda like Joe Plotnick portraying Evie
    Harris, a woman... wait. Is that OK, or is he guilty of 'blackface' minstrelsy? I have read that argument on feminist blogs like 'Alas a Blog'

  22. I can't believe people have their panties in such a twist about a movie they've never seen. Maybe y'all should watch it first then cast your judgements.

    Posted by: D.R.H. | Jun 17, 2009 6:51:36 PM

  23. I think most of you take yourselves way to seriously.............

    Posted by: wopboptorledo | Jun 17, 2009 6:55:07 PM

  24. So if he were gay, it would be fine for him to play this character? Or would you bitches be moaning about him being a self-loathing stereotype?

    Again: do you really know anyone who actually acts like this? Do you think antigay people will go see a movie about a flaming Austrian fashion critic? Have you seen this movie? No, no, and no.

  25. Andy, please, ENOUGH!!!!!
