Pun very much intended.

The Parents’ Television council is out to spoil everyone’s teenage-sex based good time by calling out basically every advertiser that bought space during “Skins,” MTV’s controversial new show about teenagers doing it all over the goddamned place. Subway is the most recent company to pull their ads, and the PTC has now called out basically everyone, demanding they pull their ads from the broadcasts, including Schick Hydro, H&R Block, L’Oreal, Foot Locker, Orbit chewing gum and Extra chewing gum. Said PTC in a statement:

“Every single advertiser who sponsored the premiere episode of Skins is not only endorsing, but glorifying teen drug and alcohol abuse, not to mention a plethora of baseless sexual content”

In addition to the advertising witch hunt, the PTC contacted the U.S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees AND the Department of Justice, requesting they open an investigation for child pornography and exploitation. The reason given was that the cast is between the ages of 15-19. because of the ages of its cast, 15-19. Personally, I think the show should be banned too. Not because it’s profane, and not because it boasts a frank depiction of teenage sexuality, but because it’s not a good television show. I’m outraged! My imaginary children aren’t going anywhere near this show! I will shield their young eyes and ears from bad acting and annoying faux-edgy posturing until they’re 35!

(Deadline)
