Complaints roll in over ‘offensive’ same-sex kiss on TV
The BBC’s “fortnightly report” of its complaint service showed that British television viewers filed a ton of quibbles between January 20 and February 2.
262 people complained about “inaccurate or irresponsible advice given on care for infants” on the show Trust Me, I’m a Doctor.
254 people objected to “footage of LeBron James shown in error during coverage of the death of Kobe Bryant” on BBC News. (Oof.)
And 111 people, astonishingly, said it was “offensive to show scenes of same-sex couples kissing” on Casualty.
The medical drama — which has been on the air now for 34 seasons and more than 1,110 episodes — and spinoff Holby City have been upping their LGBTQ+ representation in recent years, according to PinkNews.
