Call for Shakira-Rihanna video to be banned

A call has been made for the recently-released Rihanna-Shakira music video to be banned.

A Colombian politician says the video for the song “Cant remember to forget you” is immoral and vulgar and should be pulled from Colombian airwaves.

“I found a video that evidently contains images that, in my opinion, are not useful for the emotional growth and development of youths,” Bogota Councilman Marco Fidel Ramirez said.

He wrote a letter to Shakira, appealing to her role as a mother and asking her to remove the video from the Internet and to consider retracting the song altogether.

“I think the message that Shakira is sending to the youth and children around the world is a message that sells a lifestyle and promotes a particular orientation, that in my opinion, does not reflect the views of most Colombians,” the councilman said.

He argues that the smoking and the touching in bed violate a law that prohibits broadcast material that damages the moral integrity of children.

The politician has even taken his campaign to social media, distributing a flier on Facebook and Twitter that warns that the video promotes smoking and lesbianism.
