PTC Bashes Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 as Sexist, Promiscuous
It has a stupid title, we can all agree on that.
But the Parents Television Council believes the problems with Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 – a new ABC sitcom that stars Krysten Ritter as a mean young woman in New York City and James Van Der Beek as her BFF – go far beyond it’s name.
In a new statement, the PTCs says this series “is a sexist mixed-bag of hedonism, drug-use, alcohol abuse (including the main character plying a 13-year-old boy with alcohol to get him drunk) and explicit levels of promiscuity that are shocking even by today’s broadcast TV standards.”
The organization is urging advertisers AT&T and Volkswagen to boycott the program.
What do you think? Is Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 inappropriate television?
