The scene, though somewhat of a political statement since it is a kiss on the lips between two gay men, is played primarily for laughs.
Let’s face it, as television viewers we grow attached to the gay characters that resonate with us on the small screen, and with the actors that bring life to these roles.
We also find ourselves growing fond of out-and-proud actors that have opted to play it straight – that’s why it’s called acting, people – and vice versa.
All Black Aaron Smith has apologised for making "a huge mistake" after his airport toilet sex scandal.
"I've made a huge mistake, a huge error in judgment.
I'd firstly like to say a huge sorry to my partner Teagan, her family, my family," Smith said at a media conference in South Africa.
In a statement released by the NZ Rugby Union last night, Smith's girlfriend Teagan Voykovich asked that media not contact her or her family as they dealt with the situation ahead of them.
The statement said Voykovich was suffering from "some distress'' by attempts to contact her about the incident involving Smith and a mysterious woman in a disabled toilet at Christchurch Airport.
