Ewan McGregor Doesn’t Want Alabama People To See ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Because Of All The Gay Sex In It

(relevant part is at 5:45)

Towleroad – Inevitably, discussion of the controversy surrounding LeFou’s “gay moment” in the film came up.

McGregor joked, “There’s lots of gay of sex in it…there’s a lot of gay sex in this cartoon…And I think if you live anywhere near Alabama, you should not go and see this film. What would Jesus think?”

Said Colbert: “There were rumors that LeFou had gay yearnings for Gaston. It turns out he dances with a guy in a dress in one of the scenes, right? That’s the whole thing.”

“No, I think he’s a gay character,” says McGregor.

“He is?”, asked Colbert. “I thought it turned out that it doesn’t actually say.”

McGregor then laid it out, to cheers: “It’s just like – he’s a gay character. It’s 2017 for f**ks sake.”

Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, buttsex and the Beast. McGregor is responding to some of the controversy and calls for boycotts over LeFou in Beauty in the Beast being treated as gay character in the live action remake after the director recently came out and admitted that was the intent and Disney gave their okay. And perhaps shockingly I’m going to agree 100% with Ewan McGregor here. Anyone making a big deal out of this is a grade-A asshole. It’s a Disney movie, it’s not like the film is going to conclude with a ten minute analingus scene.

And even if the character is gay, people bitching about how it doesn’t belong in this universe are the dumbest of all. You’re talking about a world where normal working class people in a kingdom have been enslaved into kitchenware to sing songs all day while their newly-transformed animal monster boss sits around and mopes and yells at them in intervals until some chick with Stockholm Syndrome eventually goes “Eh fuck it” and agrees to fuck some woolly mammoth motherfucker forever without even knowing he might become human again…and your big issue is the one guy might be secretly in love with his asshole friend. I get any sort of “change” to a beloved classic is going to be received poorly but you might not want to pull on the threads of logic with Disney movies too hard before you realize they all sound like something Ariel Castro would read to the girls in his basement before bed.

Get after it LeFou, Gaston doesn’t get what he’s missing:
