The Christmas song classic “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is getting a ban from the radio and here’s why!
Christmas is such a great time to listen to your favorite holiday songs. However one of your favorites “Baby It’s Cold Outside” won’t be broadcasted anymore.
In light of the #MeTooMovement, some are saying the song is promoting date rape.
Those who are not in favor of the song say that the lyrics and video share some interesting and yet unpleasing sights. The lyrics sound as if the man is pressuring the woman as she tells him no multiple times.
Some of the lyrics say,
“The neighbors might think (Baby it’s bad out there)
Say what’s in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell) (Why thank you).”
“I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (What’s the sense of hurtin’ my pride?).”
“I really can’t stay (Baby don’t hold out)
Baby, it’s cold outside
Ah, you’re very pushy you know?
I like to think of it as opportunistic.”
However, those who like the song say that 70 years ago, the song had a different meaning.
