News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. Feb. 5, 2014: Should the new video by Sexy Bajan star Rihanna and Colombian singer Shakira be banned for what is viewed as a promotion of “lesbianism?”
A Colombian lawmaker believes it should. Marco Fidel Ramirez, the Public Option party councilor from Bogota, the country’s capital has started a petition to have the Colombia’s National Television Authority ban “Can’t Remember To Forget You.”
Ramirez says the duet by Rihanna and Shakira, which has been seen by over 66 million on YouTube already, promotes immorality and “damages the moral character of the youth of Bogota, Colombia and Latin America.”
Ramirez, who said the video was “simply gross” and nothing more than an “apology” for lesbians, added: “It sends a provocative message to weak people who can be polluted and induced to practice (lesbianism).”
Ramirez also said the pair should be ashamed with the song, which he claims also promotes tobacco use, stealing and killing.
“Our Shakira with her erotic video is promoting tobacco usage and has become the worst example for our youth,” he wrote on his Twitter feed “Shakira’s new video is a shameless case for lesbianism and immorality. It is a danger to children,”he added, using the hashtag #PeligroVideoShakira, which translates to “Dangers of Shakira’s Video.”
The videobegins with Shakira romping on a bed singing about the mistakes she’s made in love.
She later gets up close and personal with Rihanna, as the pair gyrate against a wall, cavort on a duvet and sensuously smoke cigars.
