New Buzz Lightyear film banned in United Arab Emirates amid reports it includes lesbian kiss | The Sun

THE new Buzz Lightyear film has been banned in the United Arab Emirates amid reports it includes a lesbian kiss.

Its media regulatory office yesterday tweeted an image of the lantern-jawed space hero crossed out with a red line.

The film reportedly includes an animated character voiced by actress Uzo Aduba kissing another woman.

No reason was given for the ban except it was for “violation of the country’s media content standards”.

Same-sex relationships can be punished by the death penalty in the UAE.

Cinemas had advertised the film for release from Thursday.
