CBS has issued to a testy response to a Buzzfeed post which wondered why there no shots of the couples kissing after their wedding vows at the Grammys.
CBS reacted defensively to the suggestion, and said that there had not been a decision to avoid showing same-sex kisses or any others. “It was a groundbreaking and inclusive moment on television and for all who were in the room last night. It’s hard to believe that this is BuzzFeed’s takeaway from this event,” said Phil Gonzales, senior vice president of communications. When asked separately if a decision was made in the control room at the show to not include the kisses — or if any such decision was made — Gonzales simply said, “No there wasn’t.”
It sure seemed like they purposely cut away.
