So remember how I showed that clip of Katy Perry making Elmo wish Jim Henson gave him a penis before he died? Turns out that never actually aired on PBS, nor will it after parents saw the sneak peak and lost their shit, according to TMZ:
The song made its way to YouTube Monday and racked up nearly a million views. But some parents started complaining her cleavage was too front and center. We’ve learned producers have decided not to air the song on the show.
Among the parental comments:
– “You can practically see her t*ts. That’s some wonderful children’s programming.”
– “they’re gonna have to rename it cleavage avenue”
While this is definitely going to piss off all those women who breastfeed in public just to get a reaction, – We’re all friends here. Let’s not put on airs. – I’m actually okay with this even though it could’ve been just what some poor dad needed to not shoot himself after being woken up with a LEGO to the rectum. Children shouldn’t be exposed to shitty pop music at such a young age. I’m sorry. I don’t care if it’s cool, or focus groups show it’s the best way to make them take vitamins. We all know it ends in worshiping a woman who thinks fried chicken is currency, and her belly’s Fort Knox. I won’t have it!
UPDATE: Katy’s taking the news remarkably well.
