US TV network not to ban Rihanna’s ‘Man Down’ video

Washington: Even after much criticism of Rihanna’s controversial new video ‘Man Down’, U.S. cable network Bet has refused to ban the video.

“We has a comprehensive set of standards and guidelines that are applied to all of our content. The Rihanna ‘Man Down’ video complied with these guidelines and was approved for air,” Contactmusic quoted a spokesperson of the Bet telling

In the promo of the video, the ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker was shown murdering a sex attacker, which had premiered on Bet on 31 May 2011.

Rihanna came under fire from members of the Parents Television Council for setting a bad example with the promo, and they also lashed out at TV executives for allowing the video to be shown.
