'Schitt's Cheek' Actor Dan Levy Calls Out Comedy Central India for Censoring Gay Kissing Scene

“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,” he wrote in response.

In the clip, his character David plays spin the bottle alongside Dustin Milligan‘s Ted, as well as Emily Hampshire‘s Stevie, Annie Murphy‘s Alexis and Noah Reid‘s character Patrick. A kiss between Stevie and Alexis is shown, but when Ted’s spin lands on David, the actual kiss is cut from the clip.

“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,” he clarified.

There’s some good news for Schitt’s Creek fans who want to see the final season!
