We literally can't
We, literally, can't believe Red Foo (best known for his role as a mentor to young performers on family marketed show The X Factor) thought this was a good idea.
In the new song 'Literally I Can't' - which includes a chorus where the male singers tell the women to 'shut the f*ck up' - Red Foo sings (amongst other things):
"You got a big ol' butt, I can tell by the way you walking'. But you annoying ?, because you're talking… I said jump on the pole, I didn't mean your opinion… trying to see what you got, not trying to hear what you think."
In a context where we know that sexism and harmful community attitudes are contributing to an epidemic of violence against women, this kind of message is not only offensive and demeaning, it's dangerous.
Channel 7 can't keep promoting, or profiting, from an artist who sends these messages - sign to help tell them Red Foo needs to be removed as a mentor from the show immediately.
*Update: The lyrics to this song were originally reported as including "slut" here and here. Red Foo has responded to criticism by saying he never uses the word "slut" in his song. But whether or not the lyrics include the word slut, the song in its entirety promotes problematic attitudes towards women. If you agree, sign your support.
