Coleen Garcia and Derek Ramsay, stars of Ex With Benefits, reacted to criticisms involving medical representatives.
In a presscon on Tuesday, Derek said: “I feel that in anything in life, before you assume anything, you should get as much information as you can. I wish they would give us the chance to show that we are not disrespecting them. We have complete respect for what they do.”
Coleen also added that she understand why some of the med reps were offended by the trailer but encouraged them to watch the whole movie first.
“It’s not a story about a doctor and a med rep. They may be a doctor and a med rep but it’s really about two ex-lovers coming up together and going through ups and downs. It’s really about their story more than anything. It just so happens that they are a doctor and a med rep.”
Here are some of the reactions by social media users about the issue.
