Media group condemns Paris Hilton's commercial as "soft-core porn"


UPI News Service, 05/24/2005 

A media watchdog group says a California TV ad for a hamburger chain featuring a scantily clad and soaked Paris Hilton is "soft-core porn."

The Carl's Jr. commercial features the 24-year-old heiress and actress moving seductively as she soaps down a black Bentley and herself.

"This commercial is basically soft-core porn," Melissa Caldwell, research director for the Parents Television Council told the Los Angeles Times. "It's inappropriate for television."

The advocacy group urged its more than 1 million members to protest and is considering petitioning the Federal Communications Commission for a ruling on whether the commercials are indecent.

Executives at Los Angeles TV stations said they had received few complaints about the commercial's content.
