An upcoming love scene between Days of Our Lives’ Will Horton and his boyfriend, Sonny, was posted on YouTube, but the clip—hardly risque even by daytime standards—got dinged with an age-restriction label.
It’s actually site users that flag content as inappropriate, leading to a review by staffers, but that didn’t stop the outcry. One YouTube commenter wrote, “Apparently kissing is only deemed “inappropriate” if it’s same-sex kissing. YouTube seems to have a big problem with seeing homosexuality as somehow “offensive”. YouTube needs to join the Twenty-first century. This is 2012, not 1972. “
Within an hour, however, the age restriction was lifted. Good job everyone!
