Minions movie is to be banned in Lebanon.

Lebanese authorities are considering banning the screening of the latest Minions movie, called 'Minions: The Rise of Gru' which was released on July 1st. However, Lebanon refused to reveal the reasons behind its decision to prohibit the Minions movie causing a huge fuss and pushing people to shake their own imaginations and create conspiracy theories about the real motivation behind its ban.

Various reactions and opinions were said to clarify the banning of the Minions movie where theories ranged between the movie's evil nun character and the fact of a romantic stare between two Minions, who are defined as genderless characters.

Dozens of speculations have been crashing social media as people started to analyze the Minions movie to see what's wrong with it that angered the Lebanese authorities to call for its banning from cinemas.

Furthermore, many Lebanese have strongly condemned the decision made by the General Security which demands banning the Minions movie from the country's screens defending their favorite film for being a super family movie that is safe to be watched by even young family members.

'Lebanon is a joke,' a person commented regarding the latest decision justifying that no other country decided to follow Lebanon's steps on this 'sham' decision and banned that Minions movie. Another Twitter user commented saying: "Lebanon's #1 national security risk is the Minions movie...".
