Home & Away star Lynne McGranger has criticised Seven in a further development to the controversy surrounding a same-sex kiss being deleted from the soap.
In a Facebook post on Apple TV documentary Visible: Out in Australia, soap historian Andrew Mercado recalled his early days in the media, when Seven execs resisted an Ellen episode due to homophobia.
In a Facebook response Lynne McGranger agreed there was a cultural problem within Seven.
Other industry names also “liked” the post, including former Seven staff.
Seven has blamed the Home & Away edit on “human error” and denied making two editions of the scenes in question.
It declined to comment further.
