Boo! Malaysian Radio Stations Censor GaGa's 'Gay' Born This Way Lyrics

lady gaga gets censored in malaysia

This is NOT cool, Malaysia.

Radio stations in Malaysia are refusing to play some lines from Lady GaGa's Born This Way, because they "encourage public acceptance of gays."

Boo! Here are some of the lyrics that are being edited:

"No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby."

Here's what Malaysia's AMP Radio Networks had to say about it:

"The particular lyrics in Born This Way may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances. The issue of being gay, lesbian or (bisexual) is still considered as a 'taboo' by general Malaysians."

Here's what Malaysian gay rights activist Pang Khee Teik had to say about AMP Radio Networks' decision:

"[The media should be] a platform for marginalized voices and create understanding - not perpetuate ignorance and hate."

"Lady Gaga was attempting to address this very thing in her song. How dare they play that song and cut out its shining heart. We just want the same thing as everyone else: to love, be loved and have our songs played on the radio."

Right on, Pang!

We're sad to hear this decision by Malaysian radio stations, but we're glad to see people like Pang standing up for what is right!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL! EVERYWHERE!
