Gay Panic on The Set of Taking Woodstock

Gay Panic on The Set of Taking Woodstock

Poor Ang Lee. First his Brokeback Mountain didn't win Best Picture, apparently because some voters were too repulsed by the cornholing theme to even stick the DVD in the machine. But at least that was behind closed doors. Now gay panic has made it onto the major networks with Demetri Martin--the star of Ang's Taking Woodstock, about the making of the 1969 rock festival--telling Conan how upset he was to learn he was playing a gay and even had to kiss a man! As Martin related his unease on the talk show, fellow guest Shaquille O'Neal, in an allegedly comic bit, moved down the couch, sliding far away from Martin, ha ha. And the gay civil rights movement instantly went back about 100 years.
