i haven’t watched mtv since the 80’s and i have no idea who these people are, but this should be discussed especially with those of you that have teens at home.
the most offensive comment i heard (in the tiny amount i could stomach to watch) was when the non-talented host, russell brand joked about drugging a young actress.
“She has admitted she is a little bit cuckoo upstairs and I have trained in psychiatry. So Megan, if you do have a little dizzy spell love, I could probably drop you a little pill. You can go and have a lie down in my dressing room. You might get some crazy dreams about being visited by a scarecrow, a perfumed weirdo leaning over you. But let me tell you, that’s a common side-effect. Megan, take your medicine.”*
