Films director protests at the removal of a lesbian sex scene and other edits made to her film by a third-party company working with airlines including Etihad and Delta

Booksmart director Olivia Wilde has criticised in detail the edited version of the film available on commercial flights, accusing the third party company that created the edit of sending the message that womens bodies are obscene [and] that their sexuality is shameful.

I finally had the chance to watch an edited version of Booksmart on a flight to see exactly what had been censored. Turns out some airlines work with a third party company that edits the movie based on what they deem inappropriate. Which, in our case, is … female sexuality?
