Kanye West ‘Monster’ Video Banned From MTV
Ever wonder what happened to Kanye West’s “Monster” video? Well, damnit, I do…and that’s why I had to put in a little research. Last I had heard, the video was leaked online in December but was never officially released since then.
After the 30 second preview of the video was leaked by HipHopConnection.com, women right’s activists Sharon Haywood and Melinda Tankard Reist sent a petition of 5,000 signatures from irate, concerned citizens over to Universal Music Group and MTV voicing their outrage over the video clip. They claimed that the video showed women as only sexual objects and that violence against women as art is acceptable.
