50-shades-of-grey-_2985754kThe Kenya Film and Classification Board has banned the highly anticipated film, Fifty Shades of Grey.

A statement on the Board’s Facebook page warns film operators from screening or distributing the film to the public

“The Board wishes to inform the public, film operators and stakeholders that the film, 50 Shades of Grey has been RESTRICTED,” the post reads.

After the statement, Kenyans responded with not so nice comments, some asking if downloading the movie and watching it privately will be criminal. Here is a screen-shot of the statement and some of the reactions.


This is not the first time the board has banned movie screening. Previously the board banned “Stories of Our Lives,”a provocative Kenyan film exploring life in the country’s LGBT community and the also most memorable “Wolf of Wall Street

Interesting banning of the two movies made them more popular with people downloading the movies and sharing them massively.

Will this be the same case with “Fifty Shades Of Grey”?
