Disney has indefinitely postponed the opening of its film "Beauty and the Beast" in Malaysia after censors in the Muslim-majority nation reportedly cut out a "gay moment" in the movie.The film's director Bill Condon has revealed that it contains Disney's "first exclusively gay moment", although some critics have said the reference is extremely mild and fleeting.The Malaysian release of the movie, featuring "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson, was postponed by Disney earlier this week pending "an internal review", according to theater chain Golden Screen Cinemas which was set to show the film from Thursday.The film has also come under fire from religious figures in neighboring Singapore, with Christian clergy attacking Disney for deviating from "wholesome, mainstream values".
