MALAYSIA bans a film about strippers starring Jennifer Lopez.
The country’s film censorship board said the film has “excessive obscene content.”
It said Hustlers naked breasts, erotic dances and scenes featuring drugs made it “not suitable for public screening.”
Square Box Pictures, the company distributing Hustlers in Malaysia, confirmed the ban on social media, the BBC reported.
The film is currently riding high in both the US and UK box office charts.
In Hustlers, a group of exotic dancers set out to fleece their wealthy clients.
The film, which also stars Constance Wu and Julia Stiles alongside Lizzo and Cardi B in smaller roles, is based on a true story and was inspired by a New York Magazine that went viral in 2015.
Earlier this year gay sex scenes in Rocketman were censored in Malaysia ahead of the Elton John biopic’s release there.
Scenes were also removed from the film in Russia, while it received an outright ban in Egypt, Samoa and the Cook Islands, according to the BBC.
