Rock for Life demands apology after MTVhost trashes purity, calls Palin pregnancy a "PR stunt"

Washington, D.C. – Rock for Life, a national pro-life music and advocacy movement that promotes 832 bands, is demanding an apology from MTV Music Video Awards host Russell Brand for his sexist, judgmental and intolerant remarks.

Brand, a British comedian infamous for dressing up as Osama Bin Laden the day after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, hosted the 25th annual awards ceremony Sep. 7.

Brand opened the show with a monologue that attacked the chastity promise of a Christian band, "The Jonas Brothers," and called Bristol Palin's pregnancy a "P.R. stunt".

"Brand is a sexist pig who has been arrested 11 times, once for indecent exposure,” said Erik Whittington, director of Rock for Life. β€œHe appears to care more about making crude jokes to gain attention than he does offending who choose to live a lifestyle different from his own lascivious past.”

The comedian spent much of his airtime advocating for candidates and making crude remarks about those who live chaste lives.

Brand on the Jonas Brother's abstinence until marriage promise: "A little sex once and awhile never hurt anybody."

Brand on Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol's pregnancy: "I do feel a little bit sorry for her daughter, getting pregnant, poor kid. Is it a boy? Is it a girl? It's a P.R. stunt. Come on. Be honest."

"We demand Brand apologizes to the individuals and groups he purposefully offended," Whittington said.

Rock for Life, a project of American Life League, is directed by Erik Whittington and works with hundreds of bands and thousands of pro-life youth who advocate for life using music to engage, educate and equip our culture. LIFE. Not for judgement, not for control, for a better world.
