Amid The ‘Me Too’ Movement, Should Rockford Radio Ban ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside?’ [POLL]
It wouldn't be the holiday season if there wasn't a bit of controversy.
Whether it be parents brawling over a hard to find toy or rage from Black Friday shoppers, there's always something that happens during the holidays.
This year, it's not about the toys or presents but a song. An old song. A song that has been done and redone and remixed and chopped and screwed.
Are you familiar with Baby It's Cold Outside? The Christmas song that's not really a Christmas song at all. After all, there's no mention of the holiday but in 2018 the thought of its existence is making some people cringe.
People in 2018 are now hearing the song a bit differently than in years past, claiming "the song's predatory undertone amid the 'Me Too' movement" says WGN TV in Chicago.
One radio station in Cleveland pulled Baby It's Cold Outside, another in Denver asked their listeners if they should continue to play it at all.
