Spielberg 'blacked out' of Beirut Tintin posters

    Jewish director Steven Spielberg's name has been covered up on posters advertising the new Tintin film at a cinema in Lebanon.

    A contributor to "Blog Baladi," a Lebanon-focused site, published photographs taken at Beirut's Cinema City with tape hiding Mr Spielberg's name.

    Under the heading "Selective censorship at Cinema City", he noted: "The movie was produced by Steven Spielberg, but you wouldn't know that just by looking at the posters.

    "Spielberg's name is blacked out on all posters."

    Describing it as "hypocrisy", the blogger questioned whether the decision had been taken by the cinema company or the government.

    "I guess that we shouldn't mention or see his name since he's Jewish, but we can go ahead and watch a movie he produced," he added.

    On the cinema's website, the film is credited correctly.
