Weird Al's "Fat Shaming"...

 

Over the weekend, I discovered that one of my daughter's favorite songs is Michael Jackson's "Bad" (thanks in part to the closing scene of Pixar's "Megamind"). 

Of course, I can't think of the song without singing the lyrics to the Weird Al Yankovic parody "Fat".

"Your butt is wide...well mine is, too.  Just watch your mouth, or I'll sit on you...."

That got me thinking...in this politically correct world, everything has the ability to offend someone.

Would Weird Al be embroiled in a "fat shaming" scandal if "Fat" were released today?

I hate to think so...but that's exactly what would happen.

What other songs/films/videos/etc wouldn't be made in 2014 for fear of offending someone?
