Channel 4 Censors The Simpsons
After the successful cult series The Simpsons had some problems in Switzerland and Venezuela in the past and now the UK can be added to that list. The British TV program Channel 4 deemed it necessary to remove the word "gay" from the episode "Homer Loves Flanders". The sentence containing the term was cut off by advertisements.
When asked about this issue, a spokesperson replied that a compliance officer must have been a little too sensitive in this case:
We always carefully consider the context in which language is used in our programming. However in this instance the episode was edited in error as neither the word nor the context was unsuitable. Ofcom, the broadcasting regulator says there is no evidence to conclude that the word "gay" is necessarily and automatically intended to be, or is, offensive. The term is viewed as offensive when employed in a context that results in a negative portrayal of homosexual men and women.
