In Malaysia, however, gay characters are allowed to be depicted, but only if they are either repentant or shown in a negative light.

"First of all, I think that the entire conversation has sadly been completely overblown and I attribute that to the age of sensationalism that we live in", the 36-year-old said. What would Jesus think?' Colbert couldn't quite believe the sacrilege he was hearing. "It's 2017, for f-k's sake". In this photo, the actor arrives for a Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) fundraising event at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on September 9, 2016. In Russia, lawmakers have pushed for a ban of the film, claiming the film is a "blatant" piece of sinful propaganda.

The movie was due to be released this Thursday.

Disney Malaysia has yet to reply to Malay Mail Online's queries.

The council noted that this was the first time that Disney has introduced an explicitly gay character in a big screen production, and that gay activists have applauded the media conglomerate for its courage.

McGregor isn't the only star poking fun at the controversy.

O'Hara anticipates fans will adore Emma Watson, who plays a more modern version of Belle.

The actress told Entertainment Weekly during Friday's SiriusXM Town Hall about the rumors of her possible involvement with Damien Chazelle's Academy Award-nominated film. "To me, he has always been look [ing] up to Gaston, in a nerdy kind of way".

Colbert then asked him about LeFou's love for Gaston.

"I don't want people going into this movie thinking that there's like a huge narrative there", she added. "Like numerous additions to this movie, I think it's a handsome, subtle moment that does its job and is left alone".

She's right. The controversy has been hugely overblown. "And that's what has its payoff at the end.it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie".

Le Fou's sexual orientation is never overtly stated. There is also a male character who wears a dress. Two of the men run off in disgust, but the third seems quite pleased with his new get-up.

As the live action film prepares for release this week - the reported "gay moment" has caused an entire country to drop the film from its theaters.

That's it. It lasts no more than a second.

Responding to the criticisms of some moviegoers Condon said: "Oh God".
