No surprise: The Parents Television Council, an organization that opposes explicit programming, didn't care for Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke's performance at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards.
Cyrus' twerking during the medley of We Can't Stop and Blurred Lines, combined with her nude-colored bikini and suggestively placed foam finger, constitutes "adults-only material to children while falsely manipulating the content rating to make parents think the content was safe for their children," PTC director of public policy Dan Isett said in a statement posted on the group's website Monday.
"MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials -- while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14," said Isett, who also criticized Lady Gaga's performance and the showing of a condom commercial during the show.
The PTC also used the statement to plug the Television Consumer Freedom Act, a bill that would allow cable subscribers to pick the networks they want and opt out of those they don't.
Ironic aside: Cyrus' father, Billy Ray Cyrus, sits on the PTC's advisory board.
