General censorship[]

Book censorship[]

Movie censorship[]

  • As a rule of thumb, any film that depicts the American military killing Mexicans in any context, while not always banned, is normally edited out in dubbed versions, due to the Mexican-American war. Oddly enough, subbed versions do not follow this for some bizarre reason.
  • Between 1960 and 1971, any film starring Elvis Presley was banned in Mexico after riots broke in Las Americas cinema in Mexico City during screenings of King Creole and GI Blues.
  • The Last Temptation of Christ - this film was banned between 1988 (its US premiere) and 2005. The then-ruling PRI (Institutional Revolution Party) government back then had a huge influence on media content, although the contributing factor to the ban were the fundamentalist media watchdogs who were afraid of what "superstitious viewers" would do after watching a film that depicted Jesus Christ as a flawed human.

TV censorship[]

  • South Park: The episode "Pinewood Derby" was scheduled to be broadcast on MTV Latin America on8 February 2010, but the network pulled the episode out of air, replacing it with the episode "The Ring", allegedly due to its depiction of Calderón irritating the international community and frivolously spending the space cash on water parks, which differed was said to differ from the image Mexico's Ministry of the Interior sought to present of Calderón, whom they dubbed the "Employment president", as well as the South Park creators did not get a special permit needed to broadcast an image of Mexico's flag. The Mexican South Park fans were skeptical about the explanation and some of them accused the network of unfair censorship.
    • "The Last of Meheecans" was banned as Comedy Central Latinoamérica considered offensive, particularly the scene when Cartman appears to kill a bunch of Mexicans with his taser.

Internet censorship[]

Video game censorship[]

  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 - This game was on the target of several right-wing groups who tried to ban it in some parts of Mexico because the bad guys depicted are Mexican, even though they are rebels to the Mexican government.
