Local political candidates and parents have become more and more outspoken against the MTV reality series, accusing "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County" of increasing crime and substance abuse in the Southern California city, The Los Angeles Times reported.

"It was a boneheaded move. I would never let my child participate," said parent Ketta Brown about MTV's filming. "Hopefully this show will die a natural death."

The criticism of the TV series follows a recent study that claimed Laguna Beach to be tops in substance abuse in Orange County.

"When it was so hot this summer and people asked why, I said, 'It must be MTV.' That's how ridiculous it has become," Candace Hurley, a mother of two, told the newspaper. "People now blame MTV for everything."
