The actor took to Twitter on Tuesday, Oct. 6 to share a video of the scene in question, which is from season five of the Emmy Award winning show.

The clip sees the stars of the series playing a game of spin the bottle during a pyjama party.

While all of the other kisses are shown, the video appears to jump abruptly just as Levy’s character, David Rose, is about to kiss another male on the show.

Retweeting the clip, Levy blasted, “You showed the kiss between two women, you showed the kiss between a woman and a man, then removed the kiss between two men? This is a show about the power of inclusivity.”

The actor, who is a vocal advocate for the gay community, added, “The censorship of gay intimacy is making a harmful statement against that message. #loveislove.”

Levy later followed up with another tweet to clear up any confusion, underlining that he’s pointing to the Indian broadcaster, and not the U.S. Comedy Central cable channel, which he reminds have not censored the show and “have been lovely and respectful.”

Fans have been taking to Twitter to join in with Levy in hitting out at the network for editing the scene.
