Cuban television has to apologize for censoring a gay kiss in a movie

Cuban state television had to apologize to the audience “for the mutilation” of a scene from the movie “Love, Simon” in which the two young gay protagonists kissed.

The omission of the kiss scene immediately provoked criticism and protests on social networks by LGTB activists, who called the group to concentrate and kiss in front of the headquarters of the Cuban Institute of Radio and Television (ICRT) in Havana.

In a statement collected by the official media, the Cuban Television described as “error” the omission of the scene and advanced that “the corresponding analysis is made, because the omission does not respond to homophobic positions of the ICRT and its directors of the TVC, as some have referred on social networks.“

ICRT announced that they will reissue the production “in full.”
