Some People Were Pretty Pissed They Had to Hear the Word 'Pussy' on TV Last Weekend
Most of the complaints came from concerned parents, since the FCC is obviously to blame in this situation, right?
A lot of people were upset about the leaked 2005 tape of Donald Trump saying he could just grab women "by the pussy," but it turns out some folks were even more upset with the FCC for letting TV channels play the footage, according to a new Freedom of Information Act request.
VICE News's Jason Leopold filed the FOIA request and found that 23 people made complaints to the FCC over the weekend, upset with the networks' decisions to play the uncensored tape on loop.
"If it's so bad that trump should drop out of the race saying it ONE time then why is it ok for CNN to run it 4 times an hour for 48 hours straight??????" one request from Nevada read.
Another person from New Jersey wrote, "As I'm filling this form out, they replayed it again, and this time I heard the word 'pussy' in addition to 'tits' and 'shit.'"
Apparently most of the complaints came from concerned parents who were watching the broadcast with their children, since the FCC is obviously to blame in this situation, right?
