Selective editing

Dan Levy demands answers after queer content reportedly cut from ‘Schitt’s Creek’

Schitt’s Creek creator/star Dan Levy is seeking answers after a UK television channel reportedly edited queer content out of the show.

A British fan claimed that the station, 4Music, cut out dialogue that references David (Dan Levy) and Patrick (Noah Reid) sleeping together.

“4Music showed Schitt’s Creek with cut dialogue between David and Patrick. “…to sleep with me or whatever” is just missing,” the viewer tweeted. “But their kiss is there. And episodes earlier talk of Moira sleeping with Roland remains.”

The tweet found its way to Levy, who demanded answers from the network:

“Is this true, @4Music? Censoring kissing and intimate dialogue? Also, I will be retweeting this every day until I get a response,” he wrote.

“Aside from this censorship being highly disturbing and dangerous, it was a big laugh in the scene! This is very disheartening.”

The sixth and final season of Schitt’s Creek is due to premiere on January 7, 2020.

A Los Angeles billboard featuring David and Patrick kissing went viral earlier this month after Levy shared the image:
