Jason Derulo thinks he’s being discriminated against because of his massive bulge—again—and he’s not happy about it.

In an interview on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show, “Radio Andy,” the artist complained that his noticeably large package was digitally clipped from the upcoming Cats movie, which is set to be released on Dec. 20. 

“They CGI’d the dick out,” Derulo said. “Yeah, they did CGI. I noticed that.”

Then Cohen asked Derulo if he thought they airbrushed his penis out of the movie.

“125%,” Derulo responded. “I literally… I could see it in the trailer.”

Derulo, 30, will play Rum Tum Tugger in the big-screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical (no pun intended). Earlier this year, he talked to E! News about how hard it was ensuring his package wasn’t front and center while shooting the film.

“It was interesting ‘cause we had to wear these—they were like spandex, you know?” he told the outlet. “So, it was, like, very tight, you know? So, it was bulging everywhere. Bulges everywhere and balls everywhere and everything you could possibly imagine.”

On a lighter note, Derulo said the interaction made him feel much closer to his co-stars. 

“We were naked in front of each other, so we got very close,” he said. “And you had to be pretty confident in yourself, you know what I’m saying, to come out every single day, and you know, for months and months to see each other—all of each other.”

The alleged digital modifications of Derulo’s nether regions comes shortly after he said Instagram deleted a risqué photo him that the platform said violated community guidelines on nudity and sexual activity.

“I can’t help my size,” he said at the time.
