    MTV are reportedly planning on using the event to ‘stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community in Hungary and around the world’ after the country passed a law in June banning content deemed to promote homosexuality and gender change on primtime television.

    In an internal memo, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of MTV Entertainment Group Worldwide said the decision to keep the ceremony in Hungary would likely come as a surprise to many.  

    He said: ”I have to be honest with you, as a gay man, my personal emotions got the better of me.

    ‘After learning this legislation passed, my knee-jerk reaction was that we should move the event to another country. 

    ‘However, after my emotions cooled down, I picked up the phone to connect with global LGBTQ+ advocates like All Out, got feedback from LGBTQ+ advocates in Hungary, spoke with Raffaele, Bruce and other team members from around the world, and consulted our LGBTQ+ employee resource group, Emerge.  

    The MTV EMAs will broadcast live on MTV UK on Sunday 14 November at 9pm and on Channel 5 at 11pm.
