Indonesia: Muslims Demand Ban Of Movie Because Heroine Eats "Spicy Pork"

File this under "You can't make this sh!t up":

The Indonesian Minang Youth Community and Minangkabau Cultural and Society Coordination Body reported the movie for allegedly promoting hatred against the Minang ethnic group. [...]

He claimed that most Minang people were offended by dialog in which the female character--played by Agni Pratistha--said that she loved spicy pork, which is forbidden for Muslims.

Ah, a forbidden love story only Shakespeare could appreciate - he's a Muslim, she likes pork. The original Romeo & Juliet, only in this version, Romeo's family kills them both.
