"People might say, 'Oh, enough with that #MeToo,' but if you really put that aside and listen to the lyrics, it's not something I would want my daughter to be in that kind of situation. The tune might be catchy, but let's maybe not promote that sort of an idea," Star 102's midday host Desiray told WJW.
This isn’t the first time the song has come under fire.
According to Snopes, the song has been called a "date-rape anthem." In 2017, USA Today ran a story, that in light of allegations of sexual abuse, suggested the song should be retired. The newspaper said the song was written by the same man who composed "Guys and Dolls," Frank Loesser, with the male part of the song labeled the "wolf" and the female's lyrics labeled "mouse."
