Vulgar TV shows promote sex icon

THE Jiangsu Education Channel has been suspended since November 30 by the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television for sponsoring a raucous shouting match about nudity between audience members and Gan Lulu, an auto show model famous for racy outfits.

Before the farce is made into a program and aired, video clips of the scene got leaked online and provoked a public uproar, and intervention from the watchdog.

Gan's career was launched when her own mother posted a nude online video of her, turning her into a sex goddess.

There are many controversial celebrities like Gan who are skilled in stripping and displaying their bodies to gain publicity. Some even enter entertainment and act in films. It's unbelievable.

Why do the likes of Gan Lulu keep emerging?

Who offer them stage to publicize their coarse, vulgar, and sometimes obscene behavior in their single-minded pursuit of notoriety?

It is exactly the many TV stations who vie with each other in achieving higher ratings.

Media are supposed to serve the public, thus they have a role to play in affirming correct values and morals, and this should take precedence of their craving for profits.

It is vital for them to properly identify their priority.
