Iran TV boss fired for allowing telecast of Jackie Chan sex scene
Tehran:

A regional boss of Iran’s state broadcaster IRIB has been fired after inadvertently letting a Jackie Chan sex scene slip through its tight censorship rules, local media reported on Monday.


Viewers on Iran’s Kish Island were shocked when their local TV station showed the actor having sex with a prostitute in one of his films. That is far beyond the usual limits in Iran, where men and women are not even allowed to shake hands on screen. There was a quick response after a viewer posted the clip online.

“These scenes which are in contradiction with the principles of IRIB has ultimately led to the dismissal and reprimand of some of the employees of IRIB in Kish,” the semi-official ISNA news agency reported, adding this included IRIB’s director-general for Kish. There were responses from some Iranians pointing out that no one had been fired over a fatal bus crash that killed 10 students at Tehran's Azad University last week.

“Buses turn over, planes crash... no one is dismissed A few seconds of Jackie Chan making love on IRIB and immediately all staff in that section are sacked,” one user posted on Twitter
