It was 7:30pm CST this evening and my kids and I were watching the Olympics. We were enjoying the women’s slalom waiting for the the women’s snowboarding. Most of the commercials during the Olympics are fun and family friendly, especially before 8pm which is the time my kids go to bed anyway.
Well tonight, they showed a trailer for a new movie with Bruce Willis called Cop Out. Seemed funny enough…until about minute 1:20 in the trailer.
“I’ll shoot you right in the face”
“I’ll shoot you in the face”
My six year old DID NOT need to hear that.
And he thought it was funny.
Now, I’m not one of those parents who freaks out over everything and keeps my kid from being exposed to things that could be potential teaching moments, but this was COMPLETELY irresponsible of NBC to show that part of this movie trailer at the time that they did, especially during the Olympics.
NBC you should have done better.
