Both are frivolous censorship, regardless.

Sounds like either Mis-blamed (banning it for content it doesn't contain) or Political Correctness Gone Mad (such as chaste romantic scenes being treated the same as "sexual" content).

^ I'm not sure Misblamed fits, since it only seems to apply to when the fans of a work are doing the misblaming. (Obviously, the Moral Guardians aren't generally fans of the works they try to ban.) I don't think Political Correctness Gone Mad fits either.

Any other suggestions?

This would fall under "accusing someone of nonexsistent crime", and I don't know if we have that yet.

^^There's no need since Political Correctness Gone Mad covers it, unless there's another trope that fits the example/situation more accurately. If the work is being rated for sexual content, depite not having any, or only having chaste romantic scenes, then that'd be an overreaction by the censors.

O-M-G! They held hands!
