'Skins' -- Parents Org. Wants Kiddy Porn Investigation

1/20/2011 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The sex-obsessed, drug-heavy MTV show "Skins" is under fire from a very powerful parents org. that's now calling for a federal investigation into potential child pornography violations ... TMZ has learned.

MTV Skins PTC

The Parents Television Council has fired off a letter to the U.S Department of Justice AND the U.S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees ... over concerns the show uses underage actors in graphic sexual situations.

The organization explains, "In addition to the sexual content on the show involving cast members as young as 15, PTC counted 42 depictions and references to drugs and alcohol in the premiere episode."

The group adds, "It is clear that Viacom has knowingly produced material that may well be in violation of [several anti-child pornography laws]. 

Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that MTV execs have already met to discuss the issue.

So far, no comment from MTV.

MTV is the evil twin brother to disney.. of course they've violated child porn laws.. they were too busy thinking of what next to do in order to keep ratings and further brainwash the next generation into thinking these acts and behavior should be normal..

they support 16 and pregnant

now they support this...

MTV is totally not what it used to be.. wow i wish we can go back to the 80's...

pathetic and pretty sick and twisted.. they should be held accountable.

fire the producer's

This show claims to try to be on par and speak to today's youth. If my kid acts like any of those bastard ingrate kids on this show (which I have seen), i will whoop her azz every which way but loose. If it is all true and millions of kids do act like that-all of their parents have FAILED misrably.

This is on a much higher level (so to speak) than just smoking a joint or getting laid.

Sorry to burst your bubble TMZ but Parents Television Council is NOT a 'very powerful' organisation. They are just overly religious freaks who open their mouths to everything that offends them while doing hypocritical things in their own homes secretly.

I haven't actually seen the show, but come friggen on. It's a FICTIONAL program, it's not meant to be a blueprint for teens to live their lives by. If your kids are stupid enough to want to duplicate everything they see on TV then I think the problem is the parenting, not the programing.

I am 35 years old and have 3 children ranging in age from 7-14!!! I watched a portion of this show and believe it should be removed from TV!!! I am not a religious person. I am appalled that this kind of crap is on TV! None of my children will ever be able to watch this crap and they should not be able to have it on TV!
