Fifty Shades of Grey Has Been Taken Off Bookshelves in Which Country?
Brazil is a sexy country, but apparently Fifty Shades of Grey is a little too sexy for it.
A judge in Brazil has required that copies of Fifty Shades of Grey be sealed on bookshelves, in order to prevent minors from reading them. The books were seen as being too racy for anyone in the country under age 18.
Initially, the judge had ordered the book trilogy to be completely removed from shelves of bookstores in Brazil as of January 14. Sealed copies of the book were then permitted to return to bookshelves two days later.
"Magazines and publications whose content is improper or inadequate for children and adolescents can only be sold if sealed and with warnings regarding their content," says the judge in Brazil who spearheaded the issue.
Interestingly, the three Fifty Shades of Grey books were the top three highest-selling books in Brazil last year.
Sounds like the books are just too hot for some people!
