MTV may have a really big hit on their hands with their new sexy teen drama Skins, but advertisers are abandoning ship left and right as parents’ groups and other organizations lay on the pressure. Â Skins was originally a hit in the UK, and although it has worked out well in Britain, American audiences may find it a little too racy for their tastes.
In fact, the show has been called “child pornography” by the Parents Television Council, who have filed a complaint with the Department of Justice. Â In the wake of the controversy, Taco Bell, Wrigley, GM, and H&R Block have all pulled their advertising from the show. Â As of yet, no charges have been filed against the series for sexual violations.
