American comedian Jen Kirkman said the song is not just about a man trying to coerce a woman but about the woman knowing her reputation would be ruined for staying in the context of the 1940s. Little did they know it would become a hit for generations to come. The female vocalist sings, "I really can't stay", to which the male singer responds, "But baby, it's cold outside".
KOSI Radio wants to know what you think about the song "Baby It's Cold Outside". "Parties were built around our being the closing act".
Since its release, the song has been covered by some of the world's biggest artists, including Louis Armstrong and Velma Middleton, Ray Charles and Betty Carter as well as Rod Stewart and Dolly Parton.
What happened: A radio station in Cleveland, Ohio, has made a decision to remove the classic "Baby, It's Cold Outside" from its holiday playlist after receiving multiple complaints from listeners, BBC News reports.
However the station has faced a backlash against their decision with 94 percent of listeners saying they should keep playing the song. He tries to persuade her to have another drink with him and spend the night with him despite her saying "The answer is no".
Apparently the song has been subject to scrutiny for years, even prior to the #MeToo movement which Mr Anderson cited in his explanation.
Anderson went on to say, "In a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place".
The woman's lines say "I really can't stay" and "Say, what's in this drink", and his lines include "Beautiful what's your hurry" and "Baby don't hold out".
Cleveland Rape Crisis Center President Sondra Miller told Fox News that men should understand if a woman says no they should stop.
It's a Christmas classic, but some have said that it is too offensive in 2018.
However, not everyone agrees that the song is inappropriate.
I'm so exhausted of this. But one of her lines, "Say, what's in this drink?" jumps out in this time of powerful men like Bill Cosby having to pay the consequences of sexual assault.
Backlash was inevitable when an OH radio station deemed a popular Christmas Carol inappropriate and decided not to play it this Christmas.
