HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – The movers and skakers of the American television industry have just had it with indecent exposure on live TV and on the red carpet at awards shows.
In a rare move by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the National Cable Television Association (NCTA) with the full support of all major U.S. television networks, a memorandum of agreement has been signed that will ban all indecent exposure by actors, singers and entertainers on live TV and at all red carpet ceremonies in awards shows.
The move came soon after pop singer Miley Cyrus appeared on the red carpet at last night’s MTV Video Musis Awards, wearing a top that barely covers her upper torso.
“It is time that we take back the decency and family-oriented nature of television and ban entertainers from exposing themselves before viewers, among them children and teens,” the agreement stated. “We will also blacklist any entertainer who claims ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during live performances.
The initial list of those banned from future live TV appearances included Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson.
MPAA is an American trade association that represents the six major Hollywood studios.
NCTA is the major trade organization for the American cable television industry.
