Bruno Banned in Malaysia


The Malaysian government has officially banned Sacha Baron Cohen's controversial comedy Bruno because it features gay content and gay sex scenes.

An official from the Malaysian Film Censorship Board said the film's language, raciness, and story line were unacceptable, according to the Associated Press. The board also found fault with the appearance of sex toys and jokes about religion.

"It's banned because the story is based on gay life... There are a lot of sex scenes," the spokeswoman said in the article. "It's contrary to our culture."

In the Muslim-majority nation, those found guilty of having consensual gay sex are subject to fines and lashings and can be thrown in jail for up to 20 years.
