'Hannah Montana' Episode Canceled From Airing on Disney
Following the parents' complaints toward 'No Sugar, Sugar' story line, the 'Hannah Montana' episode is pulled from Disney Channel.


"No Sugar, Sugar", the next episode of "Hannah Montana" which was scheduled to air this week, has been pulled from Disney Channel. The series' spokesperson has confirmed that the episode's pull back is due to parents' complaints regarding the story line of a teenager who suffers diabetes.

The spokesperson gives a statement to New York Daily News about the matter, saying "During the scriptwriting stage of the 'Hannah Montana' episode in question, the matter of depicting a character with diabetes was reviewed by our Standards and Practices executives who consulted with medical experts to inform the story and ensure that it was told responsibly."

Through the withdrawal, the episode is going to get an evaluation concerning the protests. "Notwithstanding the measures we took, and based on the episode's preview and early feedback from parents (who saw it on Subscription Video on Demand and/or mobile platforms), we removed the episode from Sunday's schedule and are now reevaluating it", says the Disney's spokesperson.

"No Sugar, Sugar" focuses on Miley Stewart, played by Miley Cyrus, dealing with one of her friends who suffers diabetes. However, another "Hannah Montana" episode, "Ready, Set, Don't Drive" is on its schedule to air on November 9. The story revolves around Miley's first experience in driving.
