Parents Television Council Attacks "Gossip Girl" OMFG Campaign
Those pathetic losers from the Parents Television Council who don't seem to know how to use their remote controls are on the warpath again, this time taking issue with "sexually suggestive photo showing a teenage boy kissing a girl’s cleavage" as part of CW's "Gossip Girl" current print campaign. OMFG! How shocking.
The wingnuts have recently filed "indecency" complaints over a partially blurred image of a nude model on "America's Top Model," a scene of a man groping woman's breasts on "My Mame Is Earl" and Pfizer's Viagra ads.
In a statement regarding "Gossip Girl," the PTC says: "The Parents Television Council deplores the CW’s deliberate use of profanity and sexual imagery to exploit and further corrupt young viewers, and has warned its members about the show and the new ad campaign."
"Gossip Girl" returned last Monday with second-best ever ratings in target demos. I certainly hope PTC's wretched efforts will add even more eyeballs to the show as many right wing campaigns of this kind are known to spark controversy with boomerang results.
