Under the OLD media law, the Hungarian National Media and Infocommunications Authority started investigating Tilos (HUN), a non-profit radio station because it played two songs by rapper Ice-T (Warning and It’s On) without providing any age-limit warning before the song. This investigation continues under the new media law.
The Authority justified this investigation because of Ice-T’s songs’ “harsh intonation prompting violence could generate a harmful effect on listeners who are under 16 years of age.” See? They’re just worried about our children!
Upon hearing that his songs were being censored on Twitter, Ice-T tweeted the following response under his username @FINALLEVEL:
RT @rog_r: @FINALLEVEL Sorry, but you are officially banned http://j.mp/f73DhF > I love it! The world still fears me. hahaha !
