A controversial episode of teen star Miley Cyrus' hit show HANNAH MONTANA has been cancelled after Disney bosses were flooded with complaints from concerned parents.
The episode, titled No Sugar, Sugar, sees Cyrus' character Hannah dealing with her pal's diagnosis with diabetes.
The show was set to air in the U.S. on Sunday (09Nov08), but was yanked after it was previewed by parents in an on-demand version.
A spokesperson for the show tells the New York Daily News, "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.
"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."

Ok, the episode already aired on Sunday night. I watched it. It had absolutely nothing to do with one of the character's having diabetes. It started with Miley really dreaming in her sleep, and then it fades into her dream...Miley is fast asleep and Lilly walks in the door, and yells waking Miley up. When she is awake, Miley tells Lilly about her dream. In the dream she dreams about Lilly liking Jackson and Jackson liking Lilly back. Then after the whole rest of the plot rolls out, Miley wakes up for real, and tells Lilly about the dream. Lilly's exact words were, "Me and Jackson? Hmmm... EEW!" After Miley makes a relieved comment and sigh, they hug and the show ends. Ok, so Disney should get their story straight.

The poster above is wrong. The show was pulled. The one aired was something totally differnt. There were previews for a few days of the "No Sugar, Sugar" episode, but those were pulled too. I never saw anything wrong with the previews. Oliver went to the school nurse and the girls wanted to find out what was wrong and she encouraged them to be there for Oliver, but to let him tell them in his own timing. It seemed to be a little deeper than previous HM shows, but these kids are growing up and life is changing. My son is young and he watches the show and I would not have a problem if topics such as diabetes or other issues were discussed. We had a diabetic scare about 8 weeks ago. I just explained to my son his blood is differnt than other kids, but much like Nick Jonas'. He also has diabetes. My son was very comforted by the fact that someone else has the same difference as him. He sees Nick on TV and understands he is ok even though his body is different. Maybe they should highlight Miley's hypoglycemia- but I can understand why she would not want the focus on her.
