The Star reported that The Walt Disney Co. (Malaysia) issued a press release to announce that the film, which was slated to hit the silver screen on Thursday, has been postponed “indefinitely”.

This came after a censorship that stemmed from the inclusion of a gay character in the movie. Earlier today, reports say that the film will be screened on the initial release date, but the “gay scenes” will be censored and cut out. Disney, however, have decided to postpone the movie.

Some Malaysians have took it to Twitter to voice their discontentment, while others joked that they should fly to Singapore to catch the movie.

Beauty and the Beast will hit the cinemas in Singapore on March 16, 2017.
