‘Bruno’ and the gay mafia

Hollywood's gay community is reacting with anxiety and suspicion to Sacha Baron Cohen's upcoming satire, Bruno, saying that the film excluded gays from the filmmaking process and that when they were consulted, filmmakers did not address their concerns that the film was a distortion of homosexuality.

The filmmaker conducted “significant reshoots” to temper the troubled reaction of insiders from the Hollywood gay community, according to one person involved in the Bruno production who declined to be identified, thestar.com reports.
