The scene shows characters from the show play ‘spin the bottle’ at a party, and same sex kisses.

Calling out the channel for editing out the kissing scene between the two male characters, the Schitt’s Creek creator-actor tweeted: “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.”

“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,” Dan Levy added.

Fans, too, expressed their disappointment over the matter.

“Thank you for making a show that truly meant the world to so many. This kind of censorship is not okay,” a user commented.

“This is appalling,” another wrote.

The Canadian family comedy, ‘Schitt’s Creek‘, recently made history at the 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards as it took home the majority of the awards at the ceremony, which was held virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Created by the father-son duo Eugene Levy and Dan Levy, the show follows the wealthy Rose family, who are forced to move to a small motel after losing their fortune.
