Cartoon Network Censors First Gay Kiss - [Watch]

Posted in: ,

Cartoon Network has drawn some controversy after they aired what’s believed to be its first openly gay couple on one of the network series, Clarence.

The writer of the show said that in the episode titled “Neighborhood Grill,” the two men who met for a date and proceeded to kiss on the cheeks was actually written to be a kiss on the lips. That kiss was censored by the network.

The writer, Spencer Rothbell, had a Q & A on Twitter with the show's fans and revealed he even had to fight to get the gay couple on screen in the first place. So he accepted to have the kiss censored. He said;

“It’s such a minor throwaway moment but I guess it’s better than nothing. Maybe one day the main character can be gay and it won’t be a big deal.”
