NBC Should Follow Hefner Fiancee’s Lead, Avoid Marriage with Hefner and Playboy

It’s not too late for NBC to call off the soon-to-be-aired series, “The Playboy Club,” just as Hugh Hefner’s fiancée called off their wedding scheduled for Saturday, according to The Coalition for the War on Illegal Pornography, which is launching a full-scale effort to stop the show from being profitable.

“Maybe Crystal Harris is learning what women everywhere have learned - that sleazy Hugh Hefner and his Playboy philosophy are good for no one,” said Patrick A. Trueman, President of Morality in Media, the lead organization in the War on Illegal Pornography Coalition. “NBC will also learn that a marriage to Hefner and Playboy will make for dreary future,” he added.

“It’s not too late for NBC to salvage its brand by calling off this new series which will contribute to the sexual objectification and exploitation of women and encourage greater acceptance of pornography,” Trueman said. “Harm from pornography is a worldwide pandemic and Playboy started it all, Trueman said. NBC should not throw fuel on that fire.”

“NBC may have a license to use the public airwaves, but it abuses its privilege when it collaborates with hardcore pornographer Playboy and promotes the sexual exploitation of women,” he added. “The Playboy Club and the Playboy philosophy must be stopped,” said Trueman.

He is encouraging citizens to sign the pledge at http://www.CloseTheClubOnNBC.com to make it unprofitable for NBC to exploit women.

Trueman noted that, one NBC affiliate, in Utah, announced it won’t carry the show on its network because its parent company and the Playboy brand are “completely inconsistent.” Trueman predicted that other stations would follow suit. The War on Illegal Pornography coalition is organizing a nationwide citizen effort to target all NBC affiliates urging that they refuse to carry the show. The coalition is also organizing a boycott of show sponsors to make it unprofitable for NBC to carry the show.

“Sexual exploitation has its cost and its time the promoters of such harm feel the pain,” said Trueman.
