Russia Makes ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Adults Only Because of Gay ‘Moment’

By all accounts thus far, the much-talked-about gay scene in the live-action Beauty and the Beast isn’t so much a scene, but more like a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but that hasn’t stopped Russia from taking action against the highly anticipated film. It was announced today that only adults will be able to see the film starring Emma Watson, as a result of Russia’s anti-gay propaganda laws. They don’t seem to have a problem with the cross-species romance between Belle and Beast, though. “We are issuing an exhibition license to the movie without any problems,” Vyacheslav Tyelnov, head of the culture ministry’s film department, told KinoPoisk.ru. “The age restriction will be 16+,” it was confirmed.
