Bad mentor Parents Television council blasts Miley Cyrus for nip slip at VGMs

"MTV rated the content of the program as appropriate for a child as young as 14, though most parents of teens that age would find such a content rating preposterous"

Host of the just ended, MTV Video Music Awards (VMA), Miley Cyrus has been criticised by the Parent Television Council for her glorification of marijuana and her backstage nip slip.

In the past, the PTC has had a  very contentious relationship  with the MTV awards show. And after Miley Cyrus' controversial stint as host on Sunday, this year is no exception!

Read the statement below:

"MTV had an opportunity to use its powerful VMA platform to stir a young audience to aspire to something positive and uplifting. Instead they chose to perpetuate blatant sexualization – much of it self-inflicted by the artists – and to celebrate the use of illegal drugs".

"MTV rated the content of the program as appropriate for a child as young as 14, though most parents of teens that age would find such a content rating preposterous. In the end, the network succeeded in what it wanted to do: stir up controversy without regard to its impact on an entertainment environment that is increasingly toxic for children."

"Are we surprised that Miley Cyrus exposed herself to millions of viewers, and to more people who will inevitably see the news in the mainstream media? About as surprised as we'll be if the sun rises in the east tomorrow morning. We had hoped she would have proven us wrong and demonstrate her considerable talent as a performer, rather than rely on her own sexuality to entertain the audience."

"MTV and Cyrus could both be forces for something positive, but tonight's VMA partners relied on exposing millions of children to graphic, inappropriate and far-too-frequently offensive content."
