Filmmaker Kevin Smith Loves Brazilian Transsexuals!

At least that’s the comment he made on Twitter:

Are you Brazillian (sp)? I’m only into Brazillian (sp) Trannies. Pre-op.

As I’ve stated before, I think celebrities that make these kind of jokes will reap what they sow in comments around the internet. Celebrity sites will report what the star joked about in jest as a fact, not as humor.

Lady Gaga is the perfect example of this (from The Sun):

“She also said in a recent web blog: ‘I have both male and female genitalia, but I consider myself a female.’

But GaGa, 23, told Oz’s Matt and Jo show: ‘I’ve made fun of it before but to talk about it is ridiculous.’

Hopefully she’ll learn that making fun of people who already battle ugly stereotypes isn’t nice, isn’t good business, and isn’t funny. I’m a fan of Smith’s movies, so I know there’s not a lot of hope for him. Maybe a new movie? Jay And Silent Bob Come Out?
