BET Bans Ciara’s “Ride” Video

By

BET is refusing to play the video for Ciara’s latest single “Ride,” featuring Ludacris. Stating the visuals are too “risque”. I can’t say I didn’t think this could happen after seeing the video for the first time. I didn’t expect it to be from BET though. Anyways the fans are not happy and they have started a petition online, which states:

We have been recently notified that Ciara’s new Music Video ‘Ride’ is not being showed on B.E.T because it’s too sexual. Note that they play Trey Songz ‘Invented sex’ [where he is having sex with a woman in the video] and Trey Songz ‘Neighbors Know My Name’ [Having sex with DIFFERENT woman]. I think that B.E.T is over analyzing this, or is just being disrespectful to Ciara. MTV and VH1 is playing ‘Ride’ and so are other stations. What are you B.E.T going to do about this because as a fan and Representative of Ciara you are being UNFAIR!

If you agree, you can sign the petition or twitition (whoa, new word? HA) HERE.

    OK SO WHY DID I SEE ERIKA BADU’S VIDEO ON BET AND SHE STRIPPED BUT GET NAKED IN PUBLIC AND GOT ARRESTED FOR IT AFTERWARDS–BUT BET STILL PLAY THE VIDEO–

    PLAY CIARA’S DAM SEXY VIDEO–IT NO DIFFERENT THEN THE ONE SHE DID WITH ROBIN THICK

    BET is an irony with double standards. They can’t just ban a few videos that have sexual content and not ban all of them. But then again, BET still have to operate and pay bills. Sex sells.

    Ciara’s new video is amazing. She is a beautiful woman and is showing us how wonderful the female image truly is. Not to mention her dancing is amazing. If BET believes it is to sexual they should also stop playing Rhiannas videos and Nikki Minaj’s video perhaps they should stop playing all the videos with half naked women and change their line up to match MTV and show nothing but pointless reality shows.

    That’s exactly why I don’t watch BET that’s why I don’t watch that crap but Rocsi can wear her short skirts and short dresses on national t.v. and shit come on now Hold On Wait a minute ya’ll hold on, On Beyonce ft. Jay-Z-Crazy In Love Beyonce had on the same thing ya’ll you tube Beyonce crazy in love video and you will see beyonce had on like a bikini babysuit and a fur going around her neck. I can’t believe BET would do that to that girl I don’t see nothing wrong with that video NOTHING is wrong with that video. And also did they play Nelly-Tip Drill video on BET when Nelly slid a credit card between a lad booty cheeks Come on Ya’ll We got to do better that is so not fair I don’t even have any words for that also Trey Songz can have videos were he having sex with women and these video chicks be all in the video shaking what their mama gave them I just don’t understand BET your own color will do you in MTV and VH1 is playing Ciara video but our own black own station want even support their own color and I looked at Ciara video and I don’t see nothing wrong with it because it’s no different from Beyonce wearing skanked clothes and shaking her lace front wig everywhere. Or when Keyshia Cole was on the beach wearing a babysuit walking around I mean nude is nude come on I don’t appreciate that at all and it’s not even happening to me but if I was Ciara I wouldn’t do anything else for BET I wouldn’t perform for them I wouldn’t show up to nothing they have I would be through with BET for real

    Also I feel like they are just hating on Ciara because she look good no homo or anything but that girl can dance and her abs oh my god you go ciara girl you worked hard in the gym show off what you got everybody else do it what’s good for the moose hell is good for the damn goose keep your head up CiCi.

    i totally agree!!!! there was absolutely nothing WRONG with ciara’s video. im so sick and tired of people puting ciara down when truthfully she’s really talented and an amazing dancer. BET is freaking lame, if they need to banned as well!!! nobody even watches bet, so whoever is in charge need to think of something quick because this whole banning videos that dont need to be banned thing, aint workin!!!
