The Boys Was Censored in a Masturbation Scene
Amazon's Anti-Superhero Series Went a Little Too Far
The series The Boys just started fresh with excellent reviews on Amazon Prime and despite some rough scenes, it didn’t have problems with ratings boards, although in England some episodes only got a BBFC 18 rating. But before critics (or viewers) saw the series, Amazon itself already stepped in and demanded that the makers should remove a scene. Eric Kripke, one of the co-creators of the series, confirmed that this was Amazon's only intervention and that no other changes had to be made.
Kripke via Reddit: "There was ONE SCENE that Amazon said FUCK NO, you have to cut. I couldn't quite understand why considering everything else we have in the show, but: Homelander, after being dressed down by Stilwell in episode 2, was standing on one of the Chrysler building Eagles. He pulled his pants down and started jerking off, mumbling "I can do whatever I want" over and over again until he climaxed all over New York City. We shot it! Oh my God, Anthony was the BEST in that scene. Amazon seemed to think it wasn't necessary. I thought it told me something about his psyche. To be clear, they've been great, that may have been the ONLY fight I lost in Season 1."
