The new Rihanna video, which world premiered on BET, shows Rihanna shooting and killing someone within the first 30 seconds. Why? Rihanna was raped.
Her comments on Twitter saying " This song has a very strong underlying 4 girls like me" is not helping the matter as Rihanna and BET are taking a hit over the video.
The PTC (Parents Television Council), Industry Ears, and Enough Is Enough are condeming the video and are demanding Viacom (BET's parent company) and BET to pull it off the air.
Paul Porter, co-founder of Industry Ears and a former music programmer for BET, described "Man Down" as "an inexcusable, shock-only, shoot-and-kill theme song. In my 30 years of viewing BET, I have never witnessed such a cold, calculated execution of murder in primetime. Viacom’s standards and practices department has reached another new low.” The statement continued: “If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass and BET should know better. The video is far from broadcast-worthy.”
What do you think? Should the video be pulled?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Being A Criminal Is Cool?
So the Parents Television Council went after "Glee" for it's very hot spread in GQ magazine saying that the photos are "bordering on pedophilia" although the cast members are in their 20's playing teenagers.
Cast member Diana Agron addressed the situation and stated:
"Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am. They asked us to play very heightened versions of our school characters. A 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' version. At the time, it wasn't my favorite idea, but I did not walk away."
lastly, she added: "And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?"
Now THAT is a classic quote.
Now, I ask YOU, are these photos that are featured in a men's magazine TOO hot and should not have been done?-Dr.FB
