Fifty Shades of Grey Removed from Town Shops

Fifty Shades of Grey

The world famous book Fifty Shades of Grey was removed from the shelves of Rio de Janeiro because it has material that is not suitable for children under the age of 18. The judge who ordered the books to be removed said he would return them if the books were packaged shut in order to avoid kids skimming through the pages.

(Reuters) - A judge in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro state has confiscated copies of wildly-popular trilogy "Fifty Shades of Grey" and other erotic books from two stores, saying proprietors must seal the novels to prevent children leafing through them.

Police and judicial officials in the Rio town of Macae seized 64 books including 11 copies of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" series by British author E.L. James after the shops flouted Brazilian laws by failing to conceal erotic images and content deemed inappropriate for under-18s.
