With the Marvel superhero franchises starting to get stale with the umpteenth Avengers movie, Hollywood is shifting to classic rock biopics and with the typical cultural war style, the first two blockbusters were about gay superstars.
There was last year’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” that featured the life of the band Queen as led by the iconic Freddy Mercury and the latest is the tribute to award-winning Brit, Elton John who is portrayed in the flick “Rocketman” which is in theaters now.
While the movie has been hailed by critics (homosexuals are vastly overrepresented in the entertainment industry) there is controversy over the inclusion of gay sex scenes which while relevant to the story since Sir Elton is gay could be a turnoff to many potential viewers including many who would stay away from such in-your-face indoctrination from Tinseltown.
But while the movie is already a hit as well as an Academy Awards candidate in America, some countries aren’t down with the gay sex scenes due to cultural differences and one of them happens to be Russia which has already xenophobic liberals climbing the walls and howling in outrage.

Sir Elton John has criticised a Russian film company’s decision to cut gay sex scenes from his new biopic Rocketman.
The local film distributor told state news agency Tass it cut scenes from the film to comply with Russian laws.
The British singer and the makers of Rocketman issued a statement saying they rejected the censorship “in the strongest possible terms”.
Sir Elton has previously spoken out against Russian laws banning “gay propaganda”.
In a statement shared on his Twitter page late on Friday, he described the censorship of Rocketman as a “sad reflection of the divided world we still live in and how it can still be so cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people.”

Typically elitist for a celebrity to whine in such an arrogant way demanding that liberal values be imposed on other societies and pretty damned hypocritical to cry censorship when that is exactly who the left rolls these days when it comes to conservatives.
For good measure, the 72-year-old Brit also made it clear that he isn’t down with Brexit nor his own home country.

Via Sky News:
Sir Elton John has told an audience in Verona, Italy, that he is “sick to death of Brexit”.
The 72-year-old British singer – on his last-ever world tour – added that he was “ashamed of my country for what it has done”.
“I am a European,” he told fans in the northern Italian city. “I am not a stupid colonial imperialist English idiot.”
Spoken just like a wealthy elitist globalist.
