The airline Delta has said it will start showing fuller versions of the films Booksmart and Rocketman that were controversially edited to remove scenes involving LGBTQ love and sexuality.

“We are working to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” a spokeswoman said.

Delta faced criticism after it emerged it was showing films with edits that seemingly targeted gay and lesbian sexuality.

The actor Olivia Wilde said a version of the movie Booksmart, which she directed, omitted a lesbian sex scene, a female masturbation scene, the words “vagina” and “genitals” and an animated sequence in which the two main characters turn into naked dolls.

She also pointed out that the word “fuck” was not cut from the scene in which “vagina” was muted.
