From latimes.com: “In a statement, Paul Porter, co-founder of Industry Ears and a former music programmer for BET, described “Man Down” as “an inexcusable, shock-only, shoot-and-kill theme song. In my 30 years of viewing BET, I have never witnessed such a cold, calculated execution of murder in primetime. Viacom’s standards and practices department has reached another new low.” The statement continued: “If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass and BET should know better. The video is far from broadcast-worthy.” The singing star Tweeted a non-reply reply to the controversy, which has done nothing for sales (kidding) . . .
