Ever wonder what happened to the Word Premiere for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm]’s Monster video MTV has been doing before the Jersey Shore? Well I was wondering and I came to find out that Monster has been banned from TV.
[photogallerylink id=37957 align=left] So what i’m hearing is that, MTV and other music channels aka MTV familia VH1 & BET has banned Monster in response to feminists groups and more specifically, activists like Sharon Haywood and Melinda Tankard, that says:
The mainstreaming of videos like this increases desensitized and callous attitudes toward violence against women,” mentioned one of the activists.
They also said:
Young people are seeing images and absorbing harmful messages which glamorize misogyny and brutalize women. Women are reduced to sex-doll like playthings. So great is the level of desensitization that the barbaric treatment of women and girls is seen as normal and to be expected. We decided to run this campaign because we wanted to challenge the status quo.
WTF! Look the video is a little crazy which is what we expect from Kanye West but what’s the difference from Kanye’s video and MTV show Skin that shows more then that video can do? Protest that chics!!!
Peep the video that I found on youtube and let me know if you agree with these ladies.
X the red box that comes up so you can watch video
