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