At least this one admits they initially thought it was a good idea to have ads run during the show!

Sources confirm that Schick has pulled their ads from airing during MTV's new controversial show, Skins. A rep for the company released this statement about their decision, saying:

"After Skins on MTV aired last week, the makers of Schick Hydro decided not to advertise during the program because some of this show’s content is not aligned with Schick corporate guidelines."

Aaaand that makes six! Is there anyone left?

Hey, we'll advertise! Can we get a deep discount on ad time? LOLZ!

    Thats so dumb! Jersey Shore is soooo much more innapropriate than this show, and no one is removing their shit from them. And Jersey Shore isnt even meant for teenagers. I think it needs to be moved to VH1. I Actually think Skins is good for teenagers to see. To show that some kids have it worse. And for the kids who have the same thing happening to them, like whats going on in the show, it will show them that they are not alone. Jersey Shore on the other hand is nothing but trash and its glamourising drinking and fucking.

    hi a lot people in spain think that is stupid the moral that some people show with the series…you can't have sex with 15 years old but that youre parents give you a gun as a bday present is ok? i dont think is a bad show…some kids do that for the rigth or wrong idea… just becouse you don't show it it doesn't mind that is not true,and is certenly not like the uk version but i'm trying to have an open mind about the series and to see how diferent are they going to be…hope that mtv us dont screw up the series…and if they do we still have the new generation and tha movie coming from the uk…

    Seriously… this is not a new series, it's based on the UK show, and EVERYONE knows what is Skins about: sex, alcohol, drugs, more sex and more drugs… If they didn't even get some info before running their ads there, they deserve all bad reputation they may get.

    God, this country is stupid. Since when is MTV family programming. Just b/c your teenager watches it, does NOT mean you as a parent get to censor it.

    Re: Miz Spunk Splatter – Actually that's exactly what it means. Minors are minors.

    Re: ayan Ummm what the fuck are you talking about. Please do not just shout out ignorant comments. Where is your proof that 15 year olds get guns for bday presents in the US?! Were you dropped on your head as a baby? And even so that is the parent deciding for the minor, which is what minors need, parental permission. I hate that retarded Europeans forget how diverse the US is and believe that the conservative view is the view of the whole country.

    Why is everyone freaking out, basically the advertisers realized that the show blows and they pulled out using this excuse. It's the easiest way to get out of it. Of course they knew what the show entailed, this is just their easy out from a sinking ship. And for the people complaining about the remake, the UK creator helped the US make this piece of shit and honestly seasons 1 and 2 of UK Skins were the ONLY good seasons.

    I watched last eve out of curiosity and expected the poor taste so many speak of. It wasn't at all objectionable, especially considering the contexts. Are advertisers even watching? Or just viewing clips and heeding to hearsay?

    I cannot believe that parents don't know how to use CHANNEL BLOCK on their own systems. Just block MTV if you don't want your kids to watch. If you don't teach YOUR OWN KIDS right from wrong, then let MTV be the parents. If you do teach your kids right from wrong, then they should know that the show Skins is only a TV show. Everything on TV is real anyways, right? lol. So, parent up, teach your kids right from wrong. Sit down and actually watch the show with them first. Then, if you think it is not right for them to watch, EXPLAIN to them why you think it's not right for them to watch it. Ask them what they think of the show, what character they can RELATE to on the show. You/as a parent can gain VALUABLE information about how your kid sees themself. Either teach your kids about sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll… or someone else will.. or they will EXPERIMENT on their own, like most kids these do anyways. Thoughts?

    What is the problem advertisers are having with this totally normal show about teenage angst?
