Parents Television Council Mad at MTV for Letting Miley Cyrus Twerk at VMAs
"MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate 'twerking' in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?" The PTC asked, referring to Cyrus' performance medley with America's favorite drunk uncle, Robin Thicke.
"This much is absolutely clear," the statement continued. "MTV marketed adults-only material to children while falsely manipulating the content rating to make parents think the content was safe for their children." (Fun fact: Cyrus' father, Billy Ray, is on the PTC's Advisory Board.)
Another Board member, Paul Porter, subsequently took the statement a step further by stating that "heads should roll at MTV."
As for Miley, well, let's just say she hasn't received the memo.
