People are outraged by 3-year old Paisley, a pageant contestant on TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras.” The tiny contestant appears dressed as Julia Roberts’ hooker character from “Pretty Woman” in a clip from the show.
The actual episode hasn’t even aired yet – just a promo. But the Parents Television Council is calling for the series to be canceled! They are urging its members to contact TLC and demand that the network immediately pulls the show off the air.
“We have a serious problem when a network formerly known as The Learning Channel features a toddler, who probably hasn't even learned to read, dressed as a prostitute showing off her sexy strut”, says Melissa Henson, director of communications and public education for the PTC.
What do you think? It’s our "Showbiz" Flashpoint: Has “Toddlers and Tiaras” gone too far this time? Are the parents to blame for this? Or is this just a case of a bunch of over-sensitive people getting upset over nothing? Post below and then tune in to our big debate tonight on "Showbiz Tonight," exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.
