'Baby, It's Cold Outside' Backlash: As Stations Ban Song, Listeners Demand its Return https://t.co/kQTL618bkq— People (@people) December 6, 2018
The 1944 Christmas tune "Baby, It's Cold Outside" has been banned by radio stations cuz it's provocative lyrics are inappropriate in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
The duet features a man who goes to increasingly desperate lengths to keep his date from going home, plying her with drinks and warning of wintry weather as he pleads:
"I simply must go (but baby it's cold outside) / The answer is no (but baby it's cold outside)"
Are some of the racy lyrics that has made this holiday classic controversial. The song won an Oscar for the 1949 film Neptune’s Daughter.
