shocking video gets banned

This chilling anti-child abuse PSA from Ireland has been out in the media for a bit, but the shock of how realistic and sad it is stays with you. Apparently so much that it was just banned from all media channels in Ireland.

So you're probably thinking it's because the ad was too graphic right? Too disturbing? Too sad? Nope, because it was too sexist since only a male was shown beating the child. Adfreak goes on to explain.

Pretty ridiculous considering the nature of the video. Kind of missing the point, no?
