New York Daily News reports that Colombian politician Marco Fidel Ramirez has slammed Shakira for "promoting lesbianism" in her latest music video for "Can't Remember To Forget You". Ramierez wants Colombia's National Television Authority to ban the video from showing on any of the nation's channels.
Ramirez, a Public Option party councilor from the capital of Bogota, said the video "damages the moral character of the youth of Bogota, Colombia and Latin America." He labeled Shakira as a "reference point for a society in moral decay". He called himself the "defender of morals and principles" and said Shakira and Rihanna should be ashamed for the song. He also claims it promote tobacco use, stealing and killing.
He wrote on Twitter: "Our Shakira with her erotic video is promoting tobacco usage and has become the worst example for our youth. Shakira's new video is a shameless case for lesbianism and immorality. It is a danger to children."
He used the hashtag #PeligroVideoShakira, which translates to "Dangers of Shakira's Video."
He added the video was "simply gross" and an "apology" for lesbians. He said: "It sends a provocative message to weak people who can be polluted and induced to practice (lesbianism)."
The video has already had 62 million views on Youtube. It shows Shakira on a bed talking about mistakes she's made in love, she later gets close with Rihanna. She gyrated with her against a wall and smoked cigars.
