Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's semi-regular rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not feeling anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week.

If you haven't seen Todd Haynes' excellent, Oscar-nominated Carol yet, you should know: there is a sex scene between Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. A tasteful, passionate, low-lit sex scene between two women in love. ABC has a problem with this! Or, more accurately: ABC has a problem with a snippet of said scene playing in the Weinstein Co.'s new TV spot for the acclaimed drama. 

Indeed, according to a new item in Page Six, the home of steamy fare like Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder is allegedly refusing to play the spot on their network until the ad "provides more coverage on" both actresses (a request the Weinstein Co. is reportedly complying with). Cue the outraged masses on social media -- including Shameless star Emmy Rossum, who rightly notes that there's no actual nudity-nudity visible in the spot in question (at least not that I can see?):
