HBO chief spars with critics over rape scenes



Violence and rape being promoted and sold as entertainment is a huge problem today.


I hope this post doesn’t sound too prurient, but The Young and the Restless should have a storyline where Victor Newman (played by Eric Braeden) is brutally raped by at least one other grown man. In my mind, the storyline would deal with Victor’s perceived loss of masculinity following the attack. Mr. Braeden would also do a PSA about rape.
