05 Nov Hannah Montana Diabetes Episode Pulled By Disney
Disney’s highly popular show starring Miley Cyrus is pulling an episode off the air before it airs.
No, it has nothing to do with her dating a 20 year old when she is 15 and him shacking up with her.
It actually has to do with Diabetes and it seems the episode was written poorly.
An exec had this to say:
“During the scriptwriting stage of the Hannah Montana episode in question, the matter of depicting a character with diabetes was reviewed by our Standards and Practices executives who consulted with medical experts to inform the story and ensure that it was told responsibly.
“….Notwithstanding the measures we took, and based on the episode’s preview and early feedback from parents (who saw it on Subscription Video on Demand and/or mobile platforms), we removed the episode from Sunday’s schedule and are now reevaluating it.”
Now, I have to announce I suffer from Diabetes type 2 and it would have been nice for people to be more aware of what a silent and deadly disease it is. Hopefully, it can be re-written and/or reshot as it is an important subject.
