URGENT – ACT NOW!
[*EDITOR NOTE - Given it's inappropriate sexually graphic imagery, SendTheFire.ca and The Salvation Army DO NOT encourage or condone anyone - especially those under 18 yrs old - to view this teaser or any leaked versions of the full video online.]
This is an urgent call for action to you AND ALL YOUR NETWORKS!
Stand up to rapper Kanye West, MTV and Universal Music Group and tell them he’s gone too far with his soon to be ‘officially’ released music video ‘Monster.’ Fellow rappers Rick Ross and Jay-Z are also in the vid.
The 30 second teaser shows various women using extremely disturbing and sexually explicit imagery in which they
- have little or no clothing on and
- are being tortured or
- look drugged or dead.
Put Kanye and the boys in their place and tell them that this is an unacceptable portrayal of women regardless of the point he might be trying to make.
Stop the Monster video before it’s officially released. Raise your voice, take a stand for girls and women and sign your name.
SIGN THE PETITIONS
SPEAK YOUR MIND
Go to Kanye’s Facebook page & record a video telling him what you think about his video and what you want him to do.
OTHER ACTIONS TO TAKE
- Spread the word via your facebook network
- drop a comment on Kanye’s Facebook page
- Tweet – “#kanyewest teach men to be REAL men, not cowardly monsters. Pull the “Monster” video and stop promoting sexual violence against your sisters.”
- If you discover the leaked vid while surfing youtube, flag it as inapproriate. **UPDATE – official video has been released as of June 2011** (reminder… we recommend you DON’T WATCH IT! Especially if you’re under 18 yrs old.) Just flag it without watching it.

PS – Can we suggest you don’t buy or download the song either. That should be obvious but we felt the need to say it. Getting the song just tells Kanye he’s the man and not only are you making him richer (if you actually buy it), you’re also giving approval to who he is and what he’s produced.Tweet
