Other universities are banning the song…
The Tab reports that Robin Thicke's popular track, "Blurred Lines," has now been banned from the University College London.
The song has also been banned from other school in the UK since its release, and measures have reportedly been taken to prevent the song from being played on campus. The motion was made after the track was played at a frat party event hosted at the University's union. The move to ban the song from the school was made after a call by the National Union of Students (NUS) to stop the song. They claim the song "normalizes rape" and do not want it played on any UK campus.
The song features some controversial lyrics that critics believe are sexist and allege that it promotes non-consensual sex with the chorus, "I hate these blurred lines."
Other schools that have banned the song include The University of Edinburgh, as well Lleeds, Kingston, Derby, and West Scotland Universities.
