An iconic episode of The Golden Girls has been removed after causing outrage

This comes after it was deemed racially insensitive.

A 1988 episode of hit TV show Golden Girls has been removed, in a bid to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

The episode that has been pulled is called 'Mixed Feelings.' In the episode, the son of Dorothy (Beatrice Author), Michael (Scott Jacoby) wants to marry a woman an older Black woman, Lorraine (Rosalind Cash).

The couple are against a few odds as Dorothy criticises their age difference, while Lorraine's family disapproves of their daughter marrying a white man, therefore the two families try to stop the wedding.

When the bride-to-be's family arrives, Dorothy's friends Rose (Betty White) and Blanche (Rue McClanahan) are trying out a new mud face treatment. The ladies then greet the family with their masks still on, before saying: "This is mud on our faces, we're not really Black."
