Kanye's "Monster" Video BANNED By MTV, Kanye Rolls To Paris Fashion Week

​ ​ ​ ​

Wondering why you still haven't seen Kanye, Jay, Ricky Ross and Nicki Minaj's controversial "Monster" video on tv?  It may be because MTV has banned it, thanks to protests from feminists groups.

 

Read on for what the feminine activists took issue with, plus pics of Kanye at Paris fashion week, when you read on...

A petition was submitted to MTV (and likely other music channels) by feminine activists Sharon Haywood and Melinda Tankard to not show Kanye and co's "Monster" video.  And it looks like the networks are choosing their battles--and Kanye's vid is not gonna win it.

Reportedly, MTV has agreed not to air the video.  Here's the activists' stance:

“The mainstreaming of videos like this increases desensitized and callous attitudes toward violence against women,” said Reist, one of the campaign originators.

“Young people are seeing images and absorbing harmful messages which glamorize misogyny and brutalize women. Women are reduced to sex-doll like playthings. So great is the level of desensitization that the barbaric treatment of women and girls is seen as normal and to be expected. We decided to run this campaign because we wanted to challenge the status quo.”

Months ago, the "unofficial" vid leaked on the net:

And we have yet to see a finalized version on tv.

 

In other Kanye news, he was spotted over in Paris this weekend hitting up the Jean-Paul Gaultier show with Nicole Richie:

Then his dapper self headed over to the front row of the Sonia Rykiel show with Anna Della Russo:

Fab times.

I don't understand the

I don't understand the feminist outcry, half of the dead people in that video are dudes (like the one being eaten by the male AND female zombies), plus there's a lady dressed up as a werewolf. That's pretty much the biggest F.U. to gender stereotypes that you can do in a horror-themed video--have you ever seen a female werewolf? And how about the part where the lady is dragging the dead dude? Can I make a stink about the fact that in the last 35 years or so, about 75% of homicide victims in the U.S. were MEN?

Kanye West hasn't been seen with a black woman since his mother passed. I guess he said now he can take all his money back to the devil's daughter without feeling guilty because moms wasn't having none of that. Oh well house niggers well forever exist.

oh no, the larger picture is

oh no, the larger picture is the "zombies/playthings" in the video were lilly white. Relegate those actions to minorities. White women stand up for theirs and by no means will they have young white girls thinking being a plaything to a rapper is ok.

See what happens when you try

See what happens when you try to step outside the box. Society attacks you! I personally think this has nothing to do with violence against women but just Kanye as a person. If they boycott this video then they need to boycott damn near every video on MTV, BET, VH1 and Fuse because 90% of videos have women shaking their ass, half naked, etc. and women being degraded. Also, they need to boycott these shows on VH1 where women are FIGHTING each other over bullsht and worst, over a man. But he shows a video that clearly fits the title of the song, and 'OMG, let's ban it". This feminist group is full of sht and so is MTV. Fk outta here....

All I see is a bunch if white

All I see is a bunch if white chicks hanging from ropes. Hmmmmm, I'm guessing that is the only thing that made these people get upset and want the video. The video is Ghothic and creative is if you ask me. I guess they'd rather see a bunch of black women hanging from ropes but since they see their "white angels" being mangled its a problem. SMH. This society is twisted.

praise GOD they are not

praise GOD they are not showing this video. some other vidoes have been just as bad but im glad they some of the networks are being hassled about it. the video is artistic but too many kds are these people's consumers to think that this was AT ALL appropriate. for someone who said they should go after THE BAD GIRLS CLUB...ditto sista! kanye has GOT TO BE gay. he has changed soooo much since i remember going to his early shows when he didnt have ANY of what he has now. fame and money change people so much!

Why does he have to be GAY!!?

Why does he have to be GAY!!? Because he is a black man expressing himself and not giving a fuck about what people like YOU think? People like you are nothing but homophobes! Get a damn life and let the artists be artist. If he was Gay I'd still love his creativity!

american culture (among MANY

american culture (among MANY other cultures in this world) are misogynistic in nature. so until we start addressing the values we have as a society, art will continue to imitate life... at least it's starts a dialogue
leesh's picture

Correction until women start

Correction until women start being the change they want to see, no thing will change. until women ask men WHY they feel the way they do, and LISTEN (not just wait to speak) no thing is going to change. women have NO INTEREST in solving the problem if it means they have to take responsibility for it. Women are quite content to PLAY victim as long as the can blame men for EVERYTHING wrong in the world. As long as they can say "the devil made me do it" everytime they do something wrong. I mean really when was the last time ANYTHING was a woman's fault? it's like when black people blame everything on the white man, but don't want to do anything about it.

They can not do what a woman

They can not do what a woman will not allow. The bigger issue is why do those women flock to these kinds of videos. Like someone said empower women instead of looking for a man to blame.

Kanye is walking insecurity.

Kanye is walking insecurity. He's a misogynistic, narcissistic, egomaniacal idiot who still manages to be fairly intriguing. He tries so hard to fit in and be seen as this progressive, musical, and pop culture revolutionary. In some ways he succeeds in this endeavor, but he would fare a lot better by spending a small fraction of all that money he spends in trying to look cool in therapy. It's pretty fucking sad that certain parodies of women are actually defending this garbage that he tried to air. Bloody hell, I'm not sure which gender is more misogynistic these days, men or women being that ..y'know.. misogyny is socially accepted and is pretty much mainstream. Well done.

Forget Kanye or any other

Forget Kanye or any other video. I say the feminists NEED TO BOYCOTT THE BADGIRLS CLUB. This show promotes verbal and physical violence amongst women. The content of this show is teaching our young girls that's it's acceptable to be pissy drunk, be referred to as bitch, whore, and to be degraded for having any kind of self-esteem, just to have bragging rights as a BAD BITCH. Instead of boycotting Kanye, take your fellow women and give her the speech, and then ask her why she thinks it's okay to be portrayed like that. Don't boycott Kanye....empower woman...period.

I've SAID it once, and I'll SAY it again: The main ones coughing up "negative spit" waiting for Kanye's dimise, will be the SAME ONES shaking over their own faults in 2011, write it down! WRITE-IT-DOWN. But most of you won't because you don't believe it's you =) But isn't EVERY MAN right in his own eyes? Yup. Makes you wonder in especialy this blog forums; Which ONE of you are what you claim to be online (having all these opinions like you're a scholar or really KNOW what you speak of to be true), really LIKE THAT in real life? Probably none of y'all. I've found usually it's the people with "baddest mouths" that are the "weakest links". I mean really, who can't be a "bad-ass" online??? Name one that can't. One. One can't be name because everybody can BE ONE. There are fools who can convince a nation into agreeing with them, knowing good for well they're own lifes are shit, and they're really wrong when it comes down to it. Kind of like this forum; alot of FOOLS going-off about Kanye's life and what he needs to do "to succeed"...with FLAWS all up and down their "real lifes". So, that's right come online and GO OFF on somebody's flaws so you can ignore your own. Or when you get called out, come back with "YOu mad?" LMAO".....which is fake and makes the statement TRUE. God forbid somebody call y'all out in your neighbor like y'all do Kanye. Most people can't take their own medicine. WEAK. Bottom line: "the talk a damn good gamers" who get all personal opinion on folks, 9 times out of 10 ...LACK in real life. Big time. Which probably like myself, Kanye too, just smiles and says "Bloggers...that's ALL they are....bloggers with alot of talk that really ain't about nothing but a opinion". Well. Of course.

I don't think race can be

I don't think race can be dismissed as a factor in this debate, the issue of misogyny in music videos and how it is communicated has become far too complex for that. However, this is a disturbing video. Much of the imagery is careless and as a result dangerous. Yes worse is often seen in horror films and there are issues with that too but the difference here is the potential repetitive exposure to the images here along with the music is highly influential, far more so than in a film. It's sad that sick minds communicate so much rubbish under the guise of art, when it really isn't.

If they really are concerned

If they really are concerned about the way women are depicted in the media than they should have protested all previous videos that show women in compromising situations. Lady Gaga's video Paparazzi has a woman hanging from a chandelier. They only care now because of the appearance of white females in these videos by black males. I believe that this video is a bit excessive, and due to the lack of balance their is in the portrayal of women in the media, this is too much. Maybe in a world where women weren't always denigrated and reduced to sex objects would this video be ok but for now, no.
truthHurts's picture

The issue here is the

The issue here is the demoralization of women, and the depiction of gruesome violence against women that aids in desensitizing the issue. The other day I saw a story on television of a man who was having aggressive sex with a woman to the point where he choked her to death. This cannot be the norm for our society, and when we see things that depict the very essence of that it is important for someone to speak on it. This is not a racial issue, yes Kanye West is an African American man however; the aggressive nature of this video is offensive to a certain degree. Bottom line is some art crosses the line and it is important to speak on it when it's necessary. This should be a message to all that we need start to have boundaries again. We will attack a racially issue when it arises and we will attack a sexist issue when it arises lets become human again.
