Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (born 7 October 1952) is a Russian politician and former intelligence officer who has served as President of Russia since 2012, previously holding the position from 1999 until 2008. He was also the Prime Minister of Russia from 1999 to 2000 and again from 2008 to 2012.
Russia censored Jennifer Coolidge’s now-viral quote in the second season’s finale of The White Lotus, according to local outlet Meduza.
In the episode, the Legally Blonde star was targeted by “high-end gays” trying to murder her character, Tanya McQuoid. After managing to take a few of them out, Tanya falls off a yacht, knocks her head on a dinghy and proceeds to drown to death in the Ionian Sea.
However, prior to doing so, she seeks help from the captain, explaining: “These gays, they’re trying to murder me!” Audiences in Russia didn’t hear it this way, though, as the word “gay” is said to have been replaced with “men”.
In this version, the captain also tells Tanya that “we’re all men here.” In addition, the scene where the character spies on Quentin having sex with Jack was allegedly removed entirely.
