After the recent removal of “Little Britain”, “Come Fly With Me” and some Chris Lilley shows Netflix have now removed a number of individual episodes from the popular shows “Community” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. The episodes involved the ‘blacking up’ of a number of characters and you can see the full list of episodes that have been removed below. Sony Pictures Television, who created “Community” are said to be in “support” of Netflix’s decision and Hulu also removed the episode in question.
The episode numbers on the affected shows have been adjusted so it’s not clear that there are now ‘gaps’ in the episode list when browsing Netflix.
Community – removed episodes
Season 2, Episode 14: Advanced Dungeon’s and Dragons
In this episode Chang is painted fully black and Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) says “So we’re just going to ignore the hate crime, huh?” with Chang replying: “I’m a dark elf or a drow.” This particular episode also had a great storyline about bullying so it’s a shame to see it leave.
