Free TV has held up a red flag for the Coalition for Marriage’s new commercial as part of its ‘No’ campaign for same-sex marriage, restricting it to a later timeslot because of its explicit content.
The new 30-second TVC features two of the Aussie mums who appeared in the first commercial for the ‘No’ campaign, who express their concerns over kids learning about “gay sex education” as part of the controversial Safe Schools program.
Free TV has told the Coalition For Marriage that the new ad has been given an MA classification because it depicts “implied sexual activity and verbal sexual references”, according to The Australian.
As a result, the commercial can only air after 8.30pm, or 9.30pm during a sports program or a film classified as G or PG.
