The Parents Television Council is mega mad at the new MTV adaptation of ‘Skins,’ for their use of strong sexual content on the series with many of the actors being under the age of 18.
In a letter fired off to the US Department of Justice, the PTC writes: “In addition to the sexual content on the show involving cast members as young as 15, PTC counted 42 depictions and references to drugs and alcohol in the premiere episode.”
Because of this reason, Taco Bell has already pulled advertising from the show.
We get the beef here, we watched the show, and it’s filled with everything they are talking about. If the actors are as young as 15, it may be pushing the limits. What ever happened to the days when 23 year olds were hired to play high school kids?
One member of the PTC who usually has no problemo with this type of stuff is Billy Ray Cyrus, who has yet to comment about Skins.
Looking forward to hearing what he has to say.
