UK streaming service censors a line in 2002’s Spider-Man

 

UK’s ITV Player streaming service has censored a line in Tobey Maguire’s 2002 Spider-Man over alleged homophobia.

In a scene where Spiderman (played by Maguire) is facing off with Bonesaw, Spiderman says, “That’s a cute outfit. Did your husband give it to you?”

The line has been deemed homophobic by Twitter users. In the censored version, Spiderman only says, “That’s a cute outfit.” The husband line was removed.

A Twitter user who noticed the change and recorded it on camera said: “They removed Peter Parker’s homophobia.”
