Feel-good pop anthem or semi-offensive viral video?

Singer-songwriter Hailey Rowe has just released her first single, "My Boyfriend is Gay." The video stars Rowe as a young woman who realizes her perfect boyfriend, played by Blake Peyrot from College Humor’s “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends,” drinks chocotinis through a straw and cries through romantic comedies. So yeah, he's secretly a gay dude. Who would have thought?

The video has stirred a bit of an online controversy. While some viewers find the video funny and lighthearted, some have been offended by the tired stereotypes and cheesy lyrics. Last week, The Huffington Post even likened it to Katy Perry’s "Ur So Gay".

Cameos include J.D. Ordonez from MTV’s Real World Challenge and Kristen Kelly of The Bad Girls Club. Check it out for yourself below:
