Delta Air Lines restores same-sex love scenes to in-flight films
Delta Air Lines is to show new versions of the films Booksmart and Rocketman after the carrier was criticised for screening versions with same-sex love scenes edited out. Delta said the films were edited by a third party and they did not ask for edits to be made. In the biopic Rocketman, a sex scene and a kissing scene between two men were both taken out. The film has been banned in Samoa and in Russia gay sex scenes were edited out. The editor Olivia Wilde watched the film on a Delta flight and said that while all swearing was kept in, any mentions of the words "Vagina" and "Genitals" were edited out.
