Israeli cinemas were ordered to yank “Shrek 2” after a singer said it defamed him by connecting his name with a castrated character. The Hebrew dub of the animated movie had one character threaten to castrate another by saying, “Let’s do a David Daor on him,” a translation of the original English line “Let’s Bobbitt him” — a reference to an American who was emasculated by his wife in 1993. Daor has a high-pitched voice.
