Censoring Carol: Why You Can’t See Two Women Kiss On A Plane


Delta Air Lines is having an apocalyptically bad day, as all flights have been grounded due to a power outage in all systems — but maybe if outages had only hit the carrier’s in-flight entertainment system, it might have been an improvement? Late last week, it came to light that Delta has been airing an edited version of last year’s lesbian film Carol in which not just sex, but all kissing was removed. The omission was discovered by women reporting on Twitter about their viewings on Delta flights, and the cuts were confirmed by the film’s screenwriter Phyllis Nagy, who offered United and American Airlines as examples of domestic carriers who chose to air the theatrical release.

The story is too old to be commented.
