Shakira’s proud to be Colombian, but right now Colombia isn’t so proud of her.
Marco Fidel Ramirez is calling on Colombia’s National Television Authority to ban the video for her new single, ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ from being broadcast on any of the nation’s channels because he feels her racy scenes with Rihanna promote lesbianism.
The Public Option party councillor, from the capital of Bogota, said the video ‘damages the moral character of the youth of Bogota, Colombia and Latin America.’
‘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.’
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).’
We thought it was pretty hot…
