Marcus and Todd's snog causes Corrie complaints

Marcus and Todd snogging on the soft furnishings on Coronation Street has prompted some complaints from homophobes.

Broadcasting regulator Ofcom has confirmed that it will not investigate.

From PinkNews: According to Ofcom, many of the 100-plus complaints referred to the fact that the topless kiss took place before the 8pm watershed, and that it was too “sexually suggestive’.

An Ofcom spokesperson has now confirmed to PinkNews: “Ofcom can confirm that it is not investigating the scene in Coronation Street as it was not in breach of generally accepted standards.

“Our rules do not discriminate between scenes involving opposite sex and same sex couples.”
