Free The Nipple: Fox Takes Boob Censorship To Abstract New Level

Celebs like Chelsea Handler, Norman Reedus and Miley Cyrus have been waging war against America’s apparent fear of nipples by going topless whenevs, and encouraging others to do the same. But our nation’s fear of boobs has officially become fucking absurd, as exhibited by Fox.

When reporting on the auction of Pablo Picasso’s Women of Algiers (Version O), MyFoxNY decided the nipples of the cubist-styled women were too hot for TV and blurred them. Thankfully, this bizarre bit of censorship did not go unnoticed by art critic and Vulture contributor Jerry Saltz, who screencapped this madness:

And here’s the original, which may be NSFW (if you work at Fox):

Now instead of the Women of Algiers (Version O) story being about how the painting sold for a record-making $179 million at auction, it’s about how Americans are ridiculous with their puritanical terror of lady nips. This is making international news, and we should all be embarassed.

If there’s a silver lining, it’s that this Fox fuck-up has cause The Guardian to write this gem of a sentence: “The network did not censor a pair of buttocks.”
