The trailer for the film Zoolander 2 is online. In it, there’s a model named All of indeterminate gender played by Benedict Cumberbatch. In the trailer All is asked by Stiller and Owen Wilson if he or she is a man or a woman. “Do you have a hot dog or a bun?” Wilson asks.

The transgender community has a petition to boycott the film ad the petition reads

On November 18th, the much-anticipated trailer for the sequel to Ben Stiller’s hit film ‘Zoolander’ was released.

In the “Zoolander 2” trailer, an androgynous character played by Benedict Cumberbatch is asked by Zoolander and Hansel if he is a ‘male or female model’, and if they ‘have a hot dog or a bun’. Additionally, Cumberbatch’s character is clearly portrayed as an over-the-top, cartoonish mockery of androgyne/trans/non-binary individuals. This is the modern equivalent of using blackface to represent a minority.

Y’ see. They’re lying to you. They called Zoolander a “much-anticipated” sequel. Who the heck is anticipating this movie?
