E3 featured a lesbian kiss but not everyone saw it


One of the biggest videogame conventions featured two women kissing, but the Disney channel livestreams forgot to include it or omitted it deliberately. During PlayStation’s press conference fans were watching the advertisement of the upcoming game The Last of Us Part II. Developed by Naughty Dog, the game itself is highly violent as the protagonist Ellie is forced to fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic wasteland against zombies and hostile forces. But as any living (okay, fictional) creature Ellie can fall in love. And she appears to be very attracted to one woman. The pair grow closer during the trailer and eventually kiss. However, during the Disney channel stream, viewers were stunned to find the stream cut away within a couple of seconds, though the two were locking lips for 10 seconds, if not more. However, Disney was quick to clarify that they had intended to censor the scene following the kiss – where Ellie was slitting a throat of one of her victims. “During the channel’s General Audience, DX|P-branded programming from the E3 gaming conference yesterday, telecast editors omitted content that did not meet our policy standards, including several seconds of an animated video game scene that began with a kiss, but ended with a knife attack in which a character’s throat was slashed,” they explained in the statement the following day.
