Nope, not IMO and for the reasons iiandyiiii stated. It's a bit like not being able to get away using a swastika in your wedding procession even though you are a devout Buddhist and it has nothing to do with Nazism in your eyes. You can get away with it if you're Robert Downey Junior in a major motion picture, but only if you approach it from exactly the right angle( which Tropic Thunder did IMHO ).
