Chris Evans says it's 'frustrating' that Lightyear's same-sex kiss is up for debate
Chris Evans' Lightyear
has been banned in 14 countries because the film depicts a same-sex couple who share a brief kiss.
According to reports, The United Arab Emirates said the couple’s relationship violated
the country’s media content standards and hence the Pixar film won't be released there.
Previously in an interview with Variety, Evans was asked about the scene that has been a topic of discussion.
Speaking about representation and inclusion, Chris said,
"I mean, it’s great. As great as it is — and you know, I’ve been asked
the question a few times — it’s nice, and it’s wonderful, it makes me happy.
It’s tough to not be a little frustrated that it even has to be a topic of discussion.
That it is this kind of “news.” The goal is that we can get to a point where it is the norm and that this doesn’t have to be some uncharted waters,
