Radio stations ban "Baby, It's Cold Outside" in the Me Too era

It's The Most Controversial Time Of The Year...For 'Baby, It's Cold Outside,' At Least

Loesser said her father would have been "furious" at the radio stations' decision.

Well-known Christmas song Baby it's Cold Outside, written in 1944, forbidden to put on the air members of the radio station Star 102 city of Cleveland, Ohio. The song is about a man trying to convince his date to stay with him a little longer, and it has been recorded numerous times since its debut in the movie "Neptune's Daughter".

Susan Loesser, the daughter of Broadway legend Frank Loesser, who wrote the song, insisted it's innocent.

In the age of the #MeToo movement, it appears the lyrics written more than 70 years ago don't sit well in today's world.

"The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place", he said in a statement. "People used to say "what's in this drink" as a joke".

'You know, this drink is going straight to my head, so what's in this drink?

"If we all believe 'no means no, ' how can you play that song?"

The "Baby, It's Cold Outside" controversy continues.

The song, written by composer Frank Lesser, was first performed by him and his wife Lynn garland at a family party, as humorous sketches, hinting that it was time to go.

While the headlines around "Baby, It's Cold Outside" have been more prominent in the last couple of years, the song was accused of being problematic for years before the allegations against Cosby resurfaced in 2014.

'Absolutely I get it, ' she said. 'But I think it would be good if people looked at the song in the context of the time. "But ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time".

Broadway composer Frank Loesser and his wife and musical partner Lynn are shown, April 26, 1956 in NY.
