*Robin Thicke’s controversial “Blurred Lines” video, which featured naked models, has prompted a petition in Britain urging its Prime Minister David Cameron to change the law and ban children from watching racy music videos online.
The petition has been posted on Change.org and has attracted more than 15,700 signatures.
It reads: “Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke… shows naked women cavorting around fully clothed men and lyrics that seem to promote rape. Unfortunately, this video is one of many which portray women… as sex objects and men as sexual predators.
Some of the videos by Miley Cyrus, Calvin Harris, and Justin Timberlake are perfect examples… I am asking you to put age-ratings on videos, whether sold in shops or viewed online. The digital revolution means that sharing these images is far easier than in the past and so they have much wider impact…”
The petition was launched by “Ikamara” from the Rewind&Reframe project, described as “young women from around the UK working together online and off.”
