Last weekend rumors landed online that Kanye West experience another banned video after his video “All Of The Lights” were reportedly banned.
Reports claimed that Yeezy’s video “Monster” was banned by MTV over onscene images. But the network has stepped forward to address the claims.
According to new reports, MTV only requested edits to Yeezy’s controversial footage.
“MTV has not banned Kanye West’s ‘Monster’ video,” the network said in a statement to MTV News. “We have been in constant communication with the label regarding this matter. However, we are still awaiting the edits we requested in order for the video to be suitable for broadcast.”
Last weekend, reports surfaced claiming that women activists Sharon Haywood and Melinda Tankard put together a petition requesting MTV to pull the controversial video.
“The mainstreaming of videos like this increases desensitized and callous attitudes toward violence against women,” said Reist, one of the campaign originators.
“Young people are seeing images and absorbing harmful messages which glamorise misogyny and brutalise women. Women are reduced to sex-doll like playthings. So great is the level of desensitization that the barbaric treatment of women and girls is seen as normal and to be expected. We decided to run this campaign because we wanted to challenge the status quo.”
The video’s controversy stemmed from “Monster” scenes showing the mistreatment of females.
The video was also remove from Youtube.
