Bisexual Kim Jong-un orgy scene cut from ‘The Interview’?

Nick Duffy December 28, 2014

Sony Pictures reportedly cut parts of a scene featuring a bisexual orgy out of the released version of The Interview.

The film, which revolves around a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was controversially pulled from cinemas after terrorists threats this month – but eventually given a limited release.

However, Sony made a number of cuts to the film to attempt to appease the film’s critics, removing parts of a scene implying the country’s supreme leader engaged in a bisexual orgy with James Franco’s character and four women.

The film’s final script – which leaked online after a cyber-attack – states of the scene: “Dave and Kim are in a bed naked, with the four women. They’re all playing MORTAL KOMBAT”.

PinkNews has verified that the bulk of the scene was not present in the version of the film released online on Christmas Day – though brief scenes showing the group playing ‘spin the bottle’ and naked basketball immediately beforehand were kept in.

According to the Sunday Times, Sony staff referred to the release as a “redacted version”, and hope to restore the orgy sequences and other controversial moments to a “director’s cut” DVD release in the future.

The film has come under fire of its homophobic portrayal of the Kim Jong-un (played by Randall Park), who is shown to like drinking  “gay” martinis and listening to Katy Perry, and is easily brought to tears during a TV interview.

Eminem also makes a surreal cameo at the start of the film, when the rapper casually mentions he’s gay while explaining the lyrical content of his songs.

He says: “When I say things about gay people, or people think my lyrics are homophobic – it’s because I’m gay.

“I’m more shocked with people haven’t figured it out now. I mean, it’s kind of like I’ve been playing gay peek-a-boo.”
