The word homophobia may come from Greece, but we didn't realize the practice was alive and well there!
NET, the Greek state-run television channel cut out the gay kiss on the premiere of Downton Abbey! The Syriza Party released a statement that said:
"As incredible as it may seem for a democratic country in the 21st century, officials of the NET television channel censored the scene of a kiss between men from the TV drama Downton Abbey.
This is of course an obvious case of censorship, an extreme act of homophobia and discrimination which unfortunately, after what has been happening recently, we cannot characterise as unprecedented."
Totally lame, Greece!
Also, didn't you guys INVENT gay kissing? We're pretty sure we've seen some Grecian urns that you wouldn't be able to air either!
And if they can't handle a kiss, we guess we can forget about seeing a guy go Downton on another!
That's it. We're going back to regular yogurt!
