Shakira and Rihanna premiered their steamy and racy video for "Can't Remember To Forget You" last week and shocked viewers. The 37-year-old Colombian singer and 25-year-old singer from Barbados are seen in grinding and bumping up against a wall and get touchy with each other in provocative positions that turn up the heat. Fans of both stars have applauded their musical effort but outsiders have been less receptive with an activist in Colombia by the name of Marco Fidel Ramirez, starting a petition to have the clip banned.
The "Family Councilor" ("Concejal De La Familia"), as Ramirez is known, has started a campaign on Twitter to prohibit "Can't Remember To Forget You." "The family councilor rejects categorically the contents of Shakira's latest video, as it is considered to damage the moral character of the youth of Bogotá, Colombia and Latin America," he wrote on the social network using the hashtag #PeligroVideoShakira. Ramirez mentioned Shakira in the tweet and has made it his missioned to get noticed by the singer as he feels she is promoting and motivates tobacco use, homosexuality, stealing and killing.
"Our Shakira with her erotic video is promoting tobacco usage and has become the worst example for our youth," he later added. "Shakira's new video is a shameless case for lesbianism and immorality. It is a danger to children." Within four days of the release Shakira and Rihanna's clip has had over 55 million views. Sure the video is hot and sexy, but is it as bad as Marco Fidel Ramirez is making it out to be? Sound-off in the comments below and tell us if you agree and would sign his petition?
