by at .

Keira Knightley's dramatic anti-domestic violence PSA, which debuted earlier this month, was apparently a little too hard-hitting for the British censors.

    Too shocking?

    Right. As if this is far worse than the violent video games that 8 year olds are playing or all of the cop shows currently airing by the tonnes. The very things that are UNNECESSARY violence seem to be okay in our culture, yet a public service announcement shouldn't be blunt in the slightest?

    Most people would find it much more "shocking" when their neighbours, family members or friends fall victim to domestic violence. Or perhaps when they find THEMSELVES victims to this horrid fate, which can be avoided by awareness. And awareness doesn't come tied up in a pretty pink - politically 'correct' - ribbon.

    Britain needs to wake up.

    I don't think it is very hardcore because this is probably less than what those husbands/boyfriends really do. The boyfriends/husbands really hurt the women. This is moderately less than what Chris Brown did. I did like the way that the message was being addressed to the audience.

    It gets the message across but I can see why they don't want it on British TV, it's very hardcore. I couldn't think of any other owrd!
