This is a waterfall that has cost not the actor Jackie Chan , but the director of an Iranian television. Despite the strict rules of censorship in the Islamic Republic of Iran , a sex scene with the Hong Kong actor inadvertently passed to state television, resulting in the dismissal of one of its directors.

A scene beyond the usual limits of the country

“A clip of an immoral scene in a Jackie Chan movie circulated on social media and was apparently broadcast by IRIB in Kish,” the Iranian news agency ISNA wrote. These scenes are in complete contradiction with IRIB’s rules and ultimately led to the dismissal of some of the chain’s employees in Kish, including the Director General. “

Some Iranians have expressed anger that no official has been fired after the deaths of 10 people in a bus crash on the campus of the Islamic University of Azad in Tehran last week. “Buses roll over, planes crash, ships are wrecked and no one is fired, but a few seconds of a scene of Jackie Chan making love and immediately all the staff in charge of the section is sacked” , wrote an Iranian on his Twitter account.

IRIB presenter Reza Rashidpoor ​​commented ironically that the channel should have added a caption saying the actor was actually married to the actress who played the role of prostitute.
