A few days back, I wrote about how actress and director Olivia Wilde was upset with Delta Air Lines for editing same-sex love scenes out of her film, Booksmart.
After much media attention to this issue, it appears that Delta Air Lines has changed their mind and will air the film including the previously edited out sex scenes.
CNN reports that “Delta Air Lines says in-flight versions of the films “Booksmart” and Elton John’s biopic “Rocketman” will no longer skip same-sex love scenes“.
The reason that the scenes will now be included is that the airline said the scenes were “unnecessarily excluded“.
Delta says that they weren’t aware that the scenes were edited out of the movies airing during flights. The airline is also putting a “new process in place for managing content available,” during their flights.
The CNN article also mentions how Delta said that other films which have aired in the past show that they don’t usually cut LGBTQ+ love scenes from movies available during flights.
It isn’t yet know when Delta flights will carry updated versions of Booksmart and Rocketman.
