The Parents Television Council turned their attention on Britney Spears and Rihanna over their steamy Billboard Music Awards performance.
The group issued a statement Tuesday attacking the singers’ racy performance of their “S&M” remix hit single at the awards ceremony in Las Vegas Sunday (May 22).
“What happened in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas, as the saying goes,” PTC president Tim Winter said in a statement. “It certainly has no place at 8:00 p.m. on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves.”
According to reports, Winter wants PTC members file complaints to Disney, parent company of ABC, because he said he “cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television.”
“The overtly sexualized performance by Rihanna and Britney Spears was no accident or mishap, but a deliberate effort to target teens with images and lyrics that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fetishes,” the statement concluded.
