Episodes of "Loud House" featuring a same sex couple will not air on Kiddies channel, Nickelodeon, in sub-Saharan Africa.

This is to ensure that as a global brand entertaining audiences around the world, Nickelodeon content respects the varying traditions and the cultural sensitivity in each market.
