British TV Channel admits it was wrong to censor the word 'gay' in an episode of The Simpsons aired at lunchtime

What did they think the alternative was? Homosexual, poofter, queer, faggot?

Channel 4 has admitted it made a mistake in editing the word ‘gay’ out of an episode of The Simpsons.  The broadcaster’s compliance department removed a seconds-long section of the cartoon broadcast on Sunday afternoon.

But yesterday a spokesman for Channel 4 backtracked, admitting censors had acted ‘in error’ because ‘neither the word nor the context was unsuitable’.

The line was cut from a 1994 episode of The Simpsons, called Homer Loves Flanders, screened at 12.55pm on Sunday.

In the episode Homer goes to an American football match with neighbour Ned Flanders but at first is embarrassed to be seen with the religious man.  The pair bond after Ned introduces Homer to the star quarterback.

As they drive away, they pass Homer’s workmates Lenny and Carl.   Homer proudly yells out of the window: ‘I want everyone to know that this is Ned Flanders ... my friend!’

In the original episode, Lenny turns to Carl and says: ‘What’d he say?’  Carl replies: ‘I dunno. Somethin’ about being gay.’

However in the version screened on Sunday, Carl’s line was edited out.
