Banned in Brazil: ‘50 Shades of Grey’

SAO PAULO – A Brazilian judge has ordered the erotic trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey” taken off the shelves of bookstores in the city of Macae, or at least wrapped to prevent minors from opening them.

A statement by the Rio de Janeiro State Judiciary Department said Judge Raphael Queiroz Campos issued the order after he saw children in one of city’s bookstores looking through erotic books.

Eleven copies of the “Grey” series are among 64 books taken from the shelves of two bookstores because their content was deemed “improper” for youths under the age of 18.

The books can be returned to the shelves only if they are sealed and placed out of reach of minors.
