An Open Secret - Censored for PG-13 Rating
Oh, the irony. The documentary An Open Secret has the subtitle "A Secret Hollywood doesn't want you to know" and it has now been censored by distributor Rocky Mountain Pictures (who also did the controversial doc 2016: Obama's America) with the help of Hollywood (namely the MPAA) because they rather wanted the PG-13 than the R rating.
Initially, the film got rated R for "some descriptions of sexual abuse" in May 2015 and was shown in some cinemas. But not many people wanted to see it (Deadline). In September, this rating was surrendered and replaced by a PG-13 for "disturbing thematic content involving child sexual abuse and its ramifications".
Surrendering a previous rating before a theatrical release in order to make room for a different version with a different rating isn't a new thing. The MPAA doesn't allow it that a film is shown in 2 versions at once. But this case is a little more curious because the film was already shown theatrically with the "R". But maybe it has to do with some legal battles involving the US Actor's Guild that is criticizing the film.
