In a shocking turn of events, the MPAA has overturned their initial rating of the crucial and pivotal documentary “Bully”. The Weinstein Company has agreed to remove 3 instances of the use of the “F” word in order to hand down the R rating. A key bully scene however, which was at the center of the rating dispute has agreed to be left in and uncut.
As many of our readers know we have backed The Weinstein Company and their fight for this films ability to be seen by as many people as possible. This new turn of events will happily allow many to do that and hopefully opens many eyes to the disgrace that the rating system CAN be. We know many of you were key in helping us voice our and your opinion in this case and we would like to formally say thank you and thank you to all those who helped fight for this cause. So many times outcries and fights like this go unwon, but today we can say to everyone who voiced their feelings, “We won”!!
Thank you to all our readers and be sure to spread the word that the films rating has changed and encourage everyone who has, has had, will have, loves,works with and appreciates children to see this film and hopefully this wave of difference making can continue on a much larger level.
