Parents Group Up in Arms Over Gossip Girl

The Parents Television Council has expressed outrage over an upcoming Gossip Girl episode in which three major characters take part in a threesome.

Zap2It reports that the PTC expressed its concerns in a letter to CW execs, part of which is excerpted here:

"To include a storyline like this on a program that is expressly targeted to impressionable teenagers is reckless and irresponsible. We are asking each CW Network affiliate to use their common sense and preempt this episode ... 'Gossip Girl' routinely depicts teenage characters engaging in promiscuous and consequence-free sexual behavior, and that's bad enough. But will you now be complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers should engage in behaviors heretofore associated primarily with adult films?"
