Why Jennifer Lopez’s new stripper film has been banned

“People are going to see the movie because J-Lo’s on a stripper pole”


Jennifer Lopez has been making headlines this week not just for that incredible Versace dress moment during Milan fashion week. Her latest film, Hustlers, has been banned in Malaysia due to “excessive obscene content”.

The film, which also stars Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Lizzo and Cardi B, follows a group of strippers who set out to fleece their wealthy Wall Street clients by changing their credit card details while they’re under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

However, due to scenes featuring bare breasts, erotic dances and drug use, the country’s film censorship board has deemed it “not suitable for public screening”. Square Box Pictures, who are the company distributing the film in Malaysia took to Instagram to confirm the news.

In an official announcement, they said: “We regret to inform you that Hustlers movie release has been cancelled as it has been banned in Malaysia. We deeply apologise for the inconveniences caused to our beloved followers, fans of the movie, medias and partners.
