PTC Lays Into Rihanna, "Man Down" Music Video

by at . Comments

The Parents Television Council is at it again.

This time, the group is going after Rihanna, thanks to the "cold, calculated execution of murder" depicted in the singer's new music video for "Man Down."

Outraged over RiRi suggesting "that gunning down a rapist in a crowded train station is a proper form of justice," the PTC wants this video pulled:

The council says, "If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass ..."

Rihanna's Tweet that the video conveys "a very strong underlying message 4 girls like me" is also at the root of the group's objections.

The council's venom is also directed at BET for airing the video. What do you think? Is the PTC going too far - or did Rihanna and BET?

Omg! The ptc always goes to far! I have done alot of research on them..they are fighting a losing battle trying to keep these "obscene" things from the world instead of doing the not so unintelligent thing, and just cut it out if their lives. They have no idea what entertainment is so they should stfu & stop acting like the whole entertainment business & alllll the ppl in it revolves around them ! Lame!

She's not sending any type of message, it's just a damn song. If people are stupid enough to think it's okay for you to shot someone because they raped you then that's on the individual not Rihanna....damn get a life.

Ppl can be so dumb. Its just a song and just a music video. Ashanti has a video about murdering her guy n there's blood everywhere and no ones has complained about that! They show stuff like this everyday and of course if it was chris brown it would be looked down on WELL HELLO! He's the one with the history of violence! Just stfu and let her do what she wants to do if you don't like it don't pay attention to it!

so they are more mad that a man was gunned down for raping a girl by the victim???? thats f***** up because im sure as hell if they got raped they would want to kill the s.o.b who did it to them too!!!!!!

I disagree with the PTC, they've let FAR worse go untouched on television and now they choose this? Seems kind of ridiculous to censor something like this when children see the same exact things on television all the time... Here's some advice for those parents who pride themselves in keeping their children so sheltered: Get rid of cable television and you won't have to worry [quite as much]. ;)

Rihanna Quotes

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
