Disney Pulls Episode of Hannah Montana

Disney has announced that they will be pulling an episode of Hannah Montana from being aired. The episode features a story about one of Montana's friends who is diagnosed with diabetes.  

"During the scriptwriting stage of the 'Hannah Montana' episode in question (entitled 'No Sugar, Sugar'), 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 demand and/or mobile platforms,) we removed the episode from Sunday's schedule and are now re-evaluating it", according to a spokeswoman.
