Cartoon Network has finally debuted their first ever gay characters on the show ‘Clarence’, but according to a writer on the show, their first kiss was subject to censorship.
In the episode “Neighborhood Grill,” Clarence’s teacher, Miss Baker is waiting for her blind date when she mistakes a handsome patron as her potential date. The man is then greeted by his date with two pecks on the cheek.
According to Huffpost UK:
The scene was changed in order to get the green light from Cartoon Network, who air the show.
He later added: “It’s such a minor throwaway moment but I guess it’s better than nothing. Maybe one day the main character can be gay and it won’t be a big deal.”
