“This is a show about the power of inclusivity.”
Warning: Some very minor spoilers for Schitt’s Creek Season 5 ahead.
If you’re a Schitt’s Creek fan (-head?), then you’re probably familiar with its co-creator and star, Dan Levy.

I would do bad things for those eyebrows.
Well, Dan just took to Twitter to call out a promotional clip of Schitt’s Creek that was shared by Comedy Central India last March:
Do you smell drama? #SchittsCreekOnCC @SchittsCreek | SEASON 5 | THURSDAYS | 10 PM
For context, the clip is from Season 5, Episode 5 — when the gang plays a game of spin the bottle, and chaos ensues.
Stevie and Alexis kiss:
Ted and Alexis kiss:
And then Ted and David kiss:
However, the final kiss between Ted and David was cut from the clip shared by Comedy Central India. “This is a show about the power of inclusivity,” Dan wrote in response. “The censorship of gay intimacy is making a harmful statement against that message.”
You showed the kiss between two women, you showed the kiss between a woman and a man, then removed the kiss between two men? This is a show about the power of inclusivity. The censorship of gay intimacy is making a harmful statement against that message. #loveislove https://t.co/3ouNbuetq1
He then clarified that this was directed at the channel in India, and that the US Comedy Central has been “lovely and respectful.”
I thought I made this pretty clear but for those who are confused, this is about a channel in India. @ComedyCentral in America is not censoring the show. They have been lovely and respectful. Thank you for your time. ✌🏼🙃
Comedy Central’s US Twitter account even replied with a GIF of the kiss in question:
And we’re certainly here for it!
