Cher, Christina Aguilera, Stanley Tucci and Cam Gigandet – the stars of Burlesque – talk gay bullying in a just-released video.

In the video from gay website, Tucci says the bullying directed at gay teens is a backlash against an increasingly gay-accepting society.

“Don’t you think it’s a reaction to a more open society, in the sense that as this society starts to create new freedoms and people start to feel more comfortable coming out, that there is going to be a reaction to that. An equal reaction to that would be the bullying,” Tucci says.

Cher disagrees, saying that maybe this generation is “less kind.”

“I mean you see it on reality shows, the paparazzi is much worse …,” the Academy Award-winning actress says.

Twenty-nine-year-old Aguilera, who is interviewed seated next to Gigandet, says she’s a longtime proponent of gay rights.

“Your individuality is the most important thing and you have to be able to rise above anything,” Aguilera says.

“Tell the bullies to fuck off,” Gigandet adds.
