A short but steamy sex scene with Jackie Chan in the 2010 movie The Shinjuku Incident sneaked by Iranian censors, causing uproar with the authorities, The Algemeiner reported.

Heads rolled, including the director of the regional channel Kish TV, which aired the movie. An investigation ordered by Iran’s highest authority in broadcasting was promised.


Sex scenes are strictly taboo on Iranian TV. In fact, any intimate contact on the public screen is forbidden in the Islamic Republic (male/female and certainly same sex, as the punishment in Iran for homosexuality is death).

The incident generated thousands of posts on Iranian social media mocking the regime’s hysteria over the brief scene. Some contrasted the government’s reaction with the regime’s lack of comment on a recent bus accident in which 10 students from Tehran’s Azad University were killed and 27 injured.

Students have long complained about the age and poor maintenance of the buses. As one Twitter user remarked:

“Buses overturn, ships sink, planes crash, trains derail and no-one (in authority) gets dismissed,” one Twitter user proclaimed. “But a few seconds of Jackie Chan making love…and immediately all staff in that section are sacked.”
