Bill Cosby Blamed For "Baby It's Cold Outside" Radio Ban

The daughter of the man who penned the holiday classic "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is opening up about recent backlash to the song, which some have said promotes date rape.

Glenn Anderson, a host at the radio station, says that although the song is from another era, its lyrics feel "manipulative and wrong".

"Bill Cosby is ruining it for everybody", Susan Loesser said.

It is known that this decision was taken after talks with the representatives of the movement #MeToo: they are found in the text of the song calls for sexual violence, writes Grazia.

Critics took exception to its lyrics, citing the moment he tells her "don't hold out" and particularly when she asks: 'Say, what's in this drink?'

It's a debate that's reignited every year as the calendars flip to November and the temperatures grow frostier: Is "Baby, It's Cold Outside" good, or bad?

'People used to say, 'What's in this drink?' as a joke, ' Loesser explained. You know, this drink is going straight to my head so what's in this drink?

The song, written by composer Frank Lesser, was first performed by him and his wife Lynn garland at a family party, as humorous sketches, hinting that it was time to go. "I think my father would be furious at that", she told NBC News. "But ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time".

"Saturday Night Live" previously linked the song to Cosby in a December 2015 episode that aired just days before the comedian, accused by 60 women of drugging and assaulting them, was charged with criminal sexual assault.

"Say, what's in this drink?" asks the woman, played by Tina Fey.

"Yeah, something's up with that", she counters, before handing him her drink and walking out.
