'Schitt's Creek' Star Dan Levy Slams Indian Channel For Same-Sex Kiss Censorship On Show

'Schitt's Creek' Star Dan Levy Slams Indian Channel For Same-Sex Kiss Censorship On Show

Schitt's Creek star Daniel Levy has hit out at Comedy Central India for censoring an on-screen kiss by two men.

The actor, who is also a writer and producer of the hit CBC comedy, has called out the channel after it posted an old scene from the show to its social channels.

In the scene from Patrick's housewarming party, the group play spin the bottle, with the game leading Stevie to kiss Alexis and then Alexis to kiss her boyfriend Ted.

Finally, Ted's spin lands on David and he leans in to his him purposefully on the lips - a moment which is omitted in the Comedy Central India clip, which you can see here:

Retweeting the clip, which was shared by the channel in May 2019, Levy wrote: "You showed the kiss between two women, you showed the kiss between a woman and a man, then removed the kiss between two men?

"This is a show about the power of inclusivity. The censorship of gay intimacy is making a harmful statement against that message. #loveislove"

Clearing up some confusion in the comments, Levy added: "I thought I made this pretty clear but for those who are confused, this is about a channel in India. @ComedyCentral in America is not censoring the show. They have been lovely and respectful. Thank you for your time."
