Taylor Lautner declares he’s straight after asked an offensive question

HollywoodNews.com: What is wrong with people?

Yesterday, I shared with you Tracy Morgan’s amnesia about his homophobic rant last summer and today, there’s an interview with Taylor Lautner in the Australian GQ that has me peeved.

The heartthrob star of the Twilight franchise was photographed coming out of a restaurant last summer with director Gus Van Sant and Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black – both openly gay.

So, of course, the interviewer thinks this is reason enough to ask is either man made a pass at him. Seriously? If a young actor or actress had a dinner with straight filmmakers would this even be a question?

It is completely offensive.

But Lautner took the bait and answered: “No, definitely not. I think they know I’m straight. But they’re great guys. They’re a lot of fun.”

Then he points out the obvious: “It’s not a coincidence that there was a writer, a director and an actor at dinner.”
