In the UK, thr media regulator is Ofcom. The current UK record for the most complaints (over 39,000) about a TV program is held by ''Celebrity Big Brother'', particularly the bullying and racial abuse directed at eventual winner Shilpa Shetty during the fifth season of the show.

** There probably used to be a time when French films were infamous for featuring lots more violence and sex (they never had to operate under TheHaysCode). Now that hollywood is able to do the same thing that approach is not profitable anymore and most French filmmakers would prefer to create SliceOfLife, comedy and European literature adaptations rather than excessive use of sex and violence to attract audiences that Hollywood does not attract. If anything this proves that if TheNewRockAndRoll turns out to be LighterAndSofter than older media it will still come under fire by that old media.

** Of course, do we HAVE to mention the skit that made him famous, the "Seven Dirty Words", which is the skit that GOT said words onto the FCC's "do not say" list? Do we have to mention what those seven words were?

Added DiffLines:

** In fact a rumor floating around claims that, on top of artistic preference, most films are mis-rated because certain MPAA members will either gloss over the film or fail to watch it at all. While this has never been confirmed ([[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement for the most part]]) it wouldn't be that all surprising if this was the case.

** The fundamental silliness of the original R rating for ''Bully'' is underscored when you realize that it was based on the presumption that the teenagers interviewed for the film were too young to ''watch themselves describing their own experiences in their own words.''

** The fundamental silliness of the original R rating for ''Bully'' is underscored when you realize that it was based on the presumption that the teenagers interviewed for the film were too young to ''watch themselves describing their own experiences in their own words.'' It's even more crazy when in 2004, a documentary called ''Gunner Palace'' was released, which featured 43 uses of "fuck" and several of "Motherfucker" (which isn't allowed at all at PG-13 according to the MPAA's rules). After an appeal it was granted said PG-13 status uncut without bleeping.
