Bruno is too gay for Ukraine. That’s not really surprising, in fact I’m pretty sure he’s also too gay for gay people. But they aren’t banning him from their midst, and the Ukraine is.

Variety reports that the former Soviet country has deemed the movie “immoral”. They’re not down with Bruno’s talking penis, his pedal-powered sex machine, his bad language, or really much of anything else in the movie. They think it’s obscene and improper, and of course they’re right, that’s kind of the point.

So Ukrainians won’t be able to buy tickets for Bruno. No loss, after all it’s no Borat. It is sort of interesting that some believe the ban is being instituted out of fear of offending religious sectors of the population. Wasn’t Ukraine communist like five minutes ago? Aren’t communists supposed to be anti-religion? They seemed to have latched on to the god thing hard and fast.

Universal is already releasing a watered down version of the film in other repressive, censorship heavy countries… countries like the United Kingdom. Wait a minute, when did the UK turn into China? Yet even that version it would seem, which ditches a full minute and a half of Sacha Baron Cohen’s testicles, isn’t safe enough for Ukraine. Not that I blame them. If I could un-see Sacha Baron Cohen’s pubic hair, I would.
