Though they did say that the movie has to watched through the perspective that what is depicted in the movie is based on real life, many organizations and audiences have had a bad taste in their mouths after watching the film as they continue to raise issues concerning the movie.


Just recently the movie was accused of inaccurately using the word ‘retard’, by Disability organizations. The organizations stated that the word retard being used in the film was inaccurately used when related with people who have Cerebral Palsy. You can read more about it over here.

Meanwhile, as the movie is harshly faced by critics all around, Kenya has taken it one step further. The country has banned the airing of the movie in their country.

KFCB is the body that has been tasked with film content regulation to ensure they conform to the national values. According to the Kenyan national values, this movie has too much sex, profanity, nudity, drugs and alcohol which Kenyans should not be subjected to.

But before we jump the gun and start hating on KFCB, turns out the movie has been banned in many countries as well. It boasts a whopping 569 F-word utterances, prevalent drug use as well as an orgy scene. That is why these good people at KFCB are advising against this movie.
