A kiss between actors Jamie Bell and Annette Bening and the uncovered legs of actress Margot Robbie, both featured in ads on bus stops, have been convered up in the northern Tel Aviv neighborhood of Ramat Hachayal.
The censorship was carried out not by the Film Review Board, but apparently by ultra-Orthodox residents living in the nearby neighborhood of Neve Sharet.
The poster for the movie “Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool,” featuring two the actors kissing, was completely covered, as were the actress' legs in posters for the film “I, Tonya”. Other posters featuring images of women were also covered.
Residents were troubled as they have not previously experienced any such incidents in the public sphere. “They are trying to turn Tel Aviv into Bnei Brak or Jerusalem, this is bizarre,” said one resident.
