Colombian Public Option party councilor Marco Fidel Ramírez wants to ban Shakira and Rihanna's music video "Can't Remember To Forget You" in Colombia. The politician from Bogota says the sexy scenes promote lesbianism and are inappropriate for television. Fidel Ramírez also believes the video "damages the moral character of the youth of Bogota, Colombia and Latin America." He referenced the scene in the video where the two are laying down next to each other in bathing suits smoking cigars, calling it dangerous and provocative.
"Our Shakira with her erotic video is promoting tobacco usage and has become the worst example for our youth," he tweeted. "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."
His last comment will make you cringe: "It sends a provocative message to weak people who can be polluted and induced to practice (lesbianism)."
Fans criticized Fidel Ramírez for focusing on a video as opposed to other issues going on in Colombia.
