Jack Falahee and Shonda Rhimes called out the censorship, and the Italian TV network apologized for “an excess of modesty.”

Who could forget that amazing sex scene between actors Jack Falahee and Conrad Ricamora during the series premiere of How to Get Away with Murder? Apparently, Italian broadcaster Rai when it aired episode one, season one with the scene cut out.

Executive producer Shonda Rhimes, Falahee, and Ricamora all took to social media denouncing the censored scene.

Writer Pete Nowalk posted the entire uncensored scene specifically for Italian viewers.

The scene has Falahee's character, Connor, seducing Ricamora's Oliver for some sensitive emails. When Connor gets what he wants, though, they still wind up back at Oliver's place--and in bed.

The network apologized and aired the full episode following the mistake.

In western Europe, Italy has been among the slowest countries to advance on LGBT rights. The government voted to recognize same-sex civil unions this year--well after other European Members.
