Ukraine bans 'Bruno' for immorality

Posted on

According to Reuters, the country of Ukraine has banned Sacha Baron Cohen’s Bruno for “artistically unjustified exhibition of sexual organs and sexual relations, homosexual acts in a blatantly graphic form, obscene language, sadism, anti-social behavior which could damage the moral upbringing of our citizens.” Nine out of 14 commission members voted for the ban, reports Time.

Meanwhile, Universal Pictures will release a toned-down version of the film in Britain, in hopes of lowering its rating to a teen-friendly 15.
