‘The Boys’ fans have described the latest episode as “fucking diabolical”
Note: This article contains major spoilers for The Boys season 4, episode 6.The latest episode of The Boys has sparked a wide range of reactions from viewers, with many describing its latest twists and disturbingly graphic scenes as “fucking diabolical”.Titled ‘Dirty Business’, the new episode was released on Amazon Prime Video on Thursday (July 4), and arguably delivered some of season four’s biggest shocks yet.Among those surprises was the revelation that Butcher (Karl Urban) has pretty much completely lost his mind thanks to the Compound V worm swimming around in his brain, and he’s actually been imagining his aggressive friend Joe Kessler (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) the entire time – very much in the style of Fight Club.Elsewhere, Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) finds himself having to shoot heroin up Webweaver’s (Dan Mousseau) anus, only for the Spider-Man parody to fart webs all over MM’s face.In another scene involving the expulsion of bodily fluids, Firecracker (Valorie Curry) manages to woo Homelander (Anthony Star) by squirting her breastmilk directly into his mouth, from a fair distance. He immediately caves to her advance and proceeds to breastfeed from her.Following these eye-opening new developments, fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the episode, and it’s safe to say that it went down well.“Billy Butcher has gone mental.

Amazon removes film after receiving one Ofcom complaint
Amazon Prime Video has removed a film from its library after receiving one Ofcom complaint.Filipino film Pamasahe, which was released in 2022, was found to be in breach of the regulator’s code, with the removal coming after the recent passing of the Media Bill in the UK’s House of Lords.The new law means streamers must be regulated the same as traditional broadcasters in Britain in areas such as harmful content.According to Deadline, one person complained to Ofcom after initially writing to Amazon about a scene in Pamasahe that “concerned about the inclusion of a baby in scenes depicting sexual activity between adults”.After reportedly receiving no response – and then an unsatisfactory response from the streamer – they contacted the regulator, who in turn then contacted the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).They advised that “the sequence…contains a frame that would contravene the Protection of Children Act 1978….on the basis that it shows a child in the same frame as sexual activity”. After the BBFC contacted Amazon, the film was removed.The streamer said in response that it believed that it had “robust, complete and effective” checking measures in place, evidenced by “over a decade of content distribution under the supervision of Ofcom without any prior formal investigations from Ofcom.”They added: “These sorts of content policies are nuanced and we regularly evaluate where we can make improvements.”Pamasahe follows the story of “a penniless mother, with her infant child” who “takes on a journey by land and sea to find her husband in Manila”.
