Malaysia bans Cohen's film "Bruno"....

If I had to wager a bet, I bet that bootleg copies of this movie are selling like hotcakes in Kuala Lumpur...
Malaysia has banned U.S. box office hit “Bruno” by Sacha Baron Cohen because it highlights gay life and has gay sex scenes, an official said Tuesday.

“Bruno” – following Baron Cohen’s hit “Borat” – is centered around the adventures of a flamboyant gay fashion journalist from Austria. An official from Malaysia’s Film Censorship Board said the movie was considered unacceptable because of its story line, offensive language, jokes and racy nature. She declined to be named, citing protocol.

“It’s banned because the story is based on gay life … There are a lot of sex scenes,” she said. “It’s contrary to our culture.”

Gay sex, or “carnal intercourse against the order of nature,” is punishable by up to 20 years in jail and whipping in Malaysia. Sex toys, politically incorrect comments and jokes about religion also irked the censors, she said.
