Ukraine wants SpongeBob banned for promoting homosexuality
London: Ukraine morality watchdog wants to ban popular animated show ‘SpongeBob Squarepants,’ because of its perceived “promotion of homosexuality.”
Ukraine’s National Expert Commission for Protecting Public Morality released the report, calling the cartoon a “real threat to children,” the Daily Mail reported.
Some of the other shows that have come under fire include ‘Family Guy,’ ‘Pokemon,’ ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Teletubbies,’ which the report said, “projects aimed at the destruction of the family, and the promotion of drugs and other vices.”
According to the report, ‘Teletubbies’ sent children into a trance, and created “an imbecile who will sit near the screen with an open mouth and swallow any information.”
It also criticised the fact, that one of the stars of the BBC children’s show, ‘Tinky Winky,’ carried, what looked like a woman’s handbag, saying: “in real life, boys very rarely want to put on girls’ clothes.”
Cartoon star SpongeBob has a large gay fanbase in the US and is also has been a huge hit with the children.
