MTV Bans Kanye West’s “MONSTER” Video- UPDATE: MTV NEVER BANNED THE VIDEO

Vodpod videos no longer available.

MTV agreed that they would ban the video after hearing feminine activists activists Sharon Haywood and Melinda Tankard’s petition against airing the 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.”

UPDATE:

MTV says video was never banned. Here is the official statement below:

“MTV has not banned Kaye West’s ‘Monster’ video. 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.”
