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?”
