Outrage Over Live TV Broadcast Showing Nipple Piercing


There is outrage among German politicians and child protective agencies over an episode of Big Brother where Daniela Peter, 23, got her nipple pierced while lying on a table. The show will be repeated this Friday on German television.

Essen University child protection expert Bruno Nikles says: "such self-mutilation shouldn't be shown on television because children could be watching." Many countries have variants of the Big Brother show where viewers vote out contestants.

Producers of "Big Brother" have come under fire over accusations that they coerce contestants into doing shocking things for the sake of ratings. The UK "Big Brother" went off the air briefly because contestants made death threats against each other.

  More Nipples Please  
This sounds much better than the crap they are playing on TV here. I’d watch a nipple piercing over re-runs of “That 70’s Show” any day.

i'll bring up a movie, one which everyone here has probably seen atleast once like it or hate it (personally i hate it), the titanic, it was rated pg, and had breif nudity, i'm not complaining about the nudity but that movie was a PG movie. i didn't hear anyone make a fuss over that movie, not even when it was played on tv.

"I think the case here is that Big Brother is so lame they're just doin crap to shock people into watching"

i think that was the entire purpose of the show Fear Factor. i'm not much into that show, but i'm sure most of the viewer of that show watch it simply for the shock value.

but thats like horror movies they are made to be scary, they aren't really, not to me atleast, but i'm very desensitized to it i would imagine. the first horror movie i can remember watching was IT (based on the Stephen King book) i saw that the year it came out, which was 1990 so i was 5 at the time. i actually still like that movie, so much infact i bought it.

if you haven't seen it, you should definately watch it, its about 3 hours long.

  IT is a great movie!!!  
I also watched it at a young age, and loved it then, and still love it now. Tim Curry is a very scaring clown.

  Depends on the film  
Event horizon scares the crap out of me for some reason, and i remember watching jeepers creepers at a friends(think private cinema) then walking home at 3 in the morning, very creepy.
But yeah generaly, its just a film.

Aple piercing, theres a program in the UK that shows live plastic surgery. Now thats screwed up.
