Justin Bieber's Believe Censored in Great Britain

Bad Language had to go for the PG Rating

Something that would at the most be rated as suitable for kids aged 6 and over, is too much for the kids aged 6-12 in the UK. That's why the theatrical cut of Justin Bieber's Believe will be shown in a censored version.

The concert film was directed by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and the material he shot had to be censored in two instances so that the film could get the PG rating for "mild bad language" and avoid the 12A classification for "strong bad language".

BBFC: Company chose to completely obscure two uses of strong language to achieve a PG classification. An uncut 12A was available.

Unfortunately, it's currently unknown whether the censorship was applied within the documentary segment of the film or within the songs - "Swag, swag, swag on you / Chillin' by the fire while we're eating fondue".
