Some critics of the gay teen romcom "Love, Simon" took issue with the film's softening of gay themes and sex. But last week, 20th Century Fox shared a deleted scene from the film, which may have been a bit risqué for its younger audiences.

In the clip, Simon's (Nick Robinson) friend Nick (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.) urges Simon to hang out with him. Simon agrees, but has no idea where they're headed.

"Where are we going?" Simon asks.

"We're going to the car. Then we're going to go to the street. OK?" Nick responds.

The scene cuts and shows Simon and Nick walking in Atlanta at night, heading to a gay leather bar called Atlanta Eagle. Simon tries to run away and refuses to go until Nick literally drags him to the bar.

"I heard this place had some great reviews on Yelp and supposedly has some kickass ribs," Nick says as a two men wearing leather harnesses walk inside. A burly bouncer, also in leather, tells the freaked-out teens: "I think you twinks want next door."

"Love, Simon" made headlines this week when it won Best Kiss at the MTV Movie & TV Awards Monday.
