"Should Be Legalized" Eminem - Love The Way You Lie Parody Censored by YouTubeSubmitted by sharpsteve on Thu, 10/28/2010 - 01:12
As many of you know, our political parody, Should Be Legalized, has been censored by YouTube and our virality, as a result, has been killed.
Watch and read more:
We were on pace to reach over a million views in a week after being featured on NORML's website, pro-marijuana blogs and boingboing.net. But we were halted to a crawl when YouTube deemed our video as offensive and sided with the handful of anti-Prop 19 dissenters that flagged us. YouTube's policy is a travesty to free speech, especially during the final build up to such a historic election.
Compare our video to Eminem's and tell me which one is more offensive. One that depicts marijuana use. Or one that depicts alcohol abuse, spousal abuse, sexual assault, arson, and murder. Youtube allows Eminem's to be seen by all ages at all times, and even sells advertising on it. Yet our fun loving political message is deemed and flagged as offensive for the mere FICTIONALIZED depiction of marijuana use. Help us fight this.
