Here's what the film's director has to say
 
A lot of people seem to agree with him
   
Most people think his reference is strangely on point
 
Plenty more wish everyone understood Penn's reference
 
There are lots of people left understandably confused
 
This person has the perfect solution for them though
 
Mr Pence has controversially stated he believes being gay is a "choice" and has previously supported "conversion therapy," a procedure that has been called out by scientists as having no basis in medical fact.

In that case, this person may just be right
