American music video banned for ‘explicit sexual content’
American pop stars Justin Timberlake and Ciara’s music video for the song ‘Love Sex Magic’ was banned in Turkey due to its explicit sexual content.
Turkey’s Radio and Television Supreme Council banned all tv channels from showing the video.
The video shows Ciara licking Timberlake’s ear as both hitmakers dance close to each other.
The Turkish newspaper Milliyet is wrote that the decision to ban the video was taken because it “contains sexual outfits, dancing and scenes that are contrary to the development of children and youth and morality in general.”
Ali Karacan, the owner of Numberone TV which has aired the video, called the ban ‘anachronistic’ and ‘humiliating’ for Turkey, a secular Muslim country, Milliyet reported.
