There are a ton of LGBT slurs and stereotypes

LGBT depictions are pretty much non-existent in The Breakfast Club, but there are plenty of gay slurs and stereotypes present in the film that wouldn’t make it into a film made today. For one, a gay slur is prominently scrawled on John’s locker, supposedly acting as a deterrent to anyone who would want to break into it. Then, John calls Vern a “brownie hound” toward the beginning of the film, and Andrew calls John a “f*****” not ten minutes later. John retorts by commenting on Andrew’s wrestling practice, saying, “I have such a deep admiration for guys who roll around on the floor with other guys.” Even Brian participates in the gay shaming, genuinely surprised to learn that Andrew wears “tights” as part of his wrestling uniform.
