This Is the Same-Sex Kiss Scene from 'The Fosters' That Was Blocked from YouTube

Actor Gavin MacIntosh and the Jonnor shippers were not pleased.

Here Is the
ABC

On Sunday night, Gavin MacIntosh, the star of ABC Family's The Fosters, criticized YouTube for placing an age restriction warning on a video depicting a gay kiss between Connor (MacIntosh) and Jude (Hayden Byerly). The somewhat controversial clip, which originally aired on a March 2 episode, has been heralded as the youngest same-sex kiss in U.S. TV history.

"WHAT?! YouTube blocking #jonnor scene w/ age restrictions? 100% discrimination & homophobia! SO innocent compared to what's on YouTube!" MacIntosh wrote in a since-deleted tweet. Other Jonnor shippers took to Twitter to express their outrage: 

By Monday morning, YouTube lifted the age restriction and released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter: "When it's brought to our attention that a video or channel was age-gated incorrectly, we act quickly to fix it." 

Carry on, Jonnor shippers.
