Air­line bans in- flight Killing Eve lesbo kiss

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

AN air­line has caused a ma­jor rasp­berry by CEN­SOR­ING a hot lesbo kiss on BBC smash Killing Eve.

The ac­claimed TV hit, writ­ten by Phoebe Waller- Bridge, is among the con­tent be­ing cen­sored by Emi­rates air­lines on its in- flight en­ter­tain­ment channels.

Emi­rates, the world’s fourth largest air­line, has also edited out footage of same- sex kisses from Os­carnom­i­nated Lady Bird, star­ring Saoirse Ro­nan.

In the orig­i­nal Killing Eve, one scene saw psy­cho­pathic as­sas­sin Vil­lanelle – played by Jodie Comer – se­duce a woman.

A kiss be­tween them has been re­moved by the air­line.

The BBC did not com­ment, but a source claimed that such ed­its should be banned.

The source said: “If a com­pany wants to re­move same- sex mo­ments from a BBC pro­gramme, then the BBC should put its foot down and not al­low it to be shown at all.

“It is in di­rect op­po­si­tion to what we stand for.”

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives for Emi­rates, owned by the In­vest­ment Cor­po­ra­tion of Dubai, are yet to re­spond to re­quests for com­ment.
