Booksmart director Olivia Wilde took on the airlines for censoring certain LGBTQ scenes in her feature directorial debut.
Booksmart was one of the funniest and best movies of 2019 (and probably the decade). It tells a compelling and hilarious coming-of-age story that doesn’t shy away from the honesty regarding modern teens and sex that most comedies in the genre do. The film’s progressive message was heralded by critics and so was its overall story. It is one of the best feature directorial debuts ever.
But controversy struck when Olivia Wilde found out that many airlines were censoring her work, so she took to Twitter to talk about the main issues with that sort of arbitrary editing. Check out her Twitter thread below and let’s talk after the jump.
