The indie film, co-starring Shia Labeouf, featured a graphic scene that had a female receiving oral sex from a man, but director Frederik Bond was forced to remove the scene in order to obtain an R rating from the Motion Picture Alliance of America, a move Wood claims is sexist and hypocritical.
“I would like 2 share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a woman’s sexuality once again,” she wrote on Twitter.
“The scene where the two main characters make ‘love’ was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people ‘uncomfortable’ but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered,” she added.
