Monica Lewinsky models for activist clothing line

Monica Lewinsky, who rose to fame in the 1990s due to her extramarital affair with former US President Bill Clinton, is the face of a clothing line that “wants to encourage people to vote in the upcoming US election”.

Mary Poppins’ age restrictions raised

A “Spoonful of Sugar” is apparently not enough Mary Poppins suitable for small items.

This classic Disney film, starring Julie Andrews, has had its age rating increased by the British Film Board because it allegedly contains “discriminatory language”.

The film’s rating was U which stands for universal, but has now been upgraded to PG for parental guidance.

The BBC reports that these changes were made due to the film’s use of “a derogatory term about nomadic peoples in southern Africa”, namely the word “hottentot”.

In the film, set in 1910 and filmed in 1963, the Banks family’s neighbor uses this word twice.

The British Film Council says its research into racism and discrimination has shown that a key concern for people, especially parents, is “the potential to expose children to discriminatory language or behavior that they may find disturbing or repeat without realizing the potential offence”. .
