Blogger and author Matthew Rettenmund has called on Star magazine to apologize after featuring a photo of Adam Sandler and Kevin James in a mock kiss to promote I Now Pronounce you Chuck & Larry at Shea Stadium. Chuck & Larry, which tells the story of two firefighters who pretend to be gay in order to collect domestic partner benefits from the city fo New York, was the #1 movie at the box office last weekend, taking in $34.8 million.
Star, which according to Rettenmund regularly features a “Stars: Are They Normal Or Not?” section in the magazine, placed Sandler and James in the “Not” portion of the feature.
Writes Rettenmund: “‘Pucker up, lover boys!’ is Star‘s suggestion. My suggestion is that Star pucker up and kiss my normal, gay ass.”
