After Gay scene nixed Disney Pulls release of Beauty and the Beast from Muslim Malaysia
Guess the Distributors didn't want to get thrown off a building
Despite the initial approval of an edited version of “Beauty and the Beast,” Disney has pulled the release of its new film from Malaysia.
The two main cinema chains in the mostly Muslim country gave no reason why the film, set to debut there Thursday, was shelved, according to The Associated Press.
The movie was approved by the Film Censorship Board after a minor gay scene was eliminated, according the board chairman, Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid. Scenes promoting homosexuality are forbidden, Hamid said, and the PG movie was given a PG-13 rating there instead
Personally I don't recall a "Gay" part in the original story, but please keep defending Islam, Libs, I find it amusing

1. There's a lot
of "gay" shit in almost everything Disney...perhaps they don't realize it, but their stories are hardly warrior related materials...that being said I'm not surprised they aren't releasing in the tolerant world of islam....I'm sure they don't need the legal battles associated with blaspheming through depictions of homosexuality.
Islam is not, and never has been in our times a religion of tolerance and peace. Why that is matters not at this time, how to deal with it is more important and the option appear to be somewhat limited.

4. In fairness, of all the characters in the original cartoon, Lefou s the obvious choice if you want
to make one of them gay. At the very least, he has a man-crush on Gaston.
