Evening Standard Accuses Emirates of Cutting Same-Sex Kisses from Films

The London Evening Standard has levelled accusations against Emirates Airlines of censoring gay kisses from films and television.


Among the shows censored are Killing Eve and the Oscar nominated Lady Bird, starring Saoirse Ronan.


A scene in Ladybird in which Ronan’s character discovers her boyfriend kissing another boy was allegedly cut, as well as a lesbian kiss in Killing Eve.


Emirates has denied censoring same-sex kisses, but said in a statement they reserve the right to edit content: “Emirates acquires mostly theatrical unedited versions of content, but as a family friendly airline serving an international audience, where there is excessive violence, sex, nudity or language, we opt to licence the edited versions created by the studios/distributors.”
