The bathtub scene in question involves Oliver (that's Barry) watching Felix (that's Jacob) masturbate in a bathtub. Once Felix leaves, Oliver then gets in the bathtub, licks up Felix's semen from the bathtub drain and eats it.

Reacting to the scene on Twitter, one person wrote: "Went to see Saltburn (again hehe) the other day and a man walked out and never came back after the ehem…bathtub bit".

Another added: "Just watched saltburn. I will never look at a bathtub the same again."

Barry is yet to comment on the scene directly but he has shared a hilarious photo of him in the bathtub from rehearsals on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Jacob recently told Variety: "I was like, ‘Thank God it’s mine. I was very proud. I was very proud to have Barry Keoghan guzzling it like that."
