With the ongoing conversation about sexism and inclusion in comics is relevant today even more than ever, the BBC posted a video titled Redrawing women Tackling sexism in Comics earlier today showing various women speaking of their experiences and thoughts about female superhero characters. Awesome, we thought, let’s go find out more, but as it turns out, within a few hours the video had been removed with a generic note: This video has been removed for editorial reasons.

We’re still trying to find the full version of the video to share with you here, but we’ve found a clip from it to start you off with:

So the question stands, why would the BBC post it then turn right back around and nuke it within hours? What do you think?
