I’m sure you know that this year at the VMA’s, in front of 12 million viewers, MTV once again showed their support for the abusive Chris Brown. This time they dressed him in all white and suspended him above the crowd with wires. Meanwhile, they gave Tyler, the Creator the Best New Artists award. That same night he tweeted: “VICTORIA JUSTICE IS GOING TO TAKE THIS DICK. or get socked in her fucking mouth.” He since deleted the tweet. This is the same guy who used the word “faggot” over 213 times in his first album.
MTV has a responsibility to their viewers to support artists who support women, not artists who think it’s okay to beat them — or talk about beating them. They should not use their influence to help misogynistic or homophobic artists pass on their message.
