'Baby, It's Cold Outside' pulled from some Canadian radio stations

A United States radio station has removed Baby It's Cold Outside from its Christmas playlist claiming the song's lyrics are at odds with the #MeToo movement.

Last year, a radio station in Dallas-Fort Worth pulled all five of its versions of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" out of the Christmas rotation, citing listeners' concerns over the lyrics.

The debate over the meaning of the song has continued to divide social media, so for now, radio stations like Star 102 will be giving it the cold treatment.

He said: "The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place".

My mother will start to worry - Beautiful, what's your hurry?

That comes as the duet, written back in 1944, faces renewed scrutiny over what some say are inappropriate lyrics in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

But some people apparently got confused, and that has "led to misdirected complaints" to "Kansas City's Christmas Station", which has no plans to yank "Baby, It's Cold Outside" from its all-holiday song rotation, set to run through December 25.

"We are aware of the controversy regarding "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and based on feedback from our listeners we have chose to pull the song from KOSI 101.1", said Program Director Jim Lawson in an email to FOX31.

Chopra asked her 26-year-old beau in the interview , to which he replied, "I am". Everything has "NP" carved on it, which stands for Nick and Priyanka .

It's since been covered countless times by singers Ray Charles and Betty Carter, Idina Menzel & Michael Buble, as well as Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart.

The lyrics read like a conversation between a man and a woman with the woman saying she must leave, while the man insists she stays.

And two years ago, Minnesota couple Lydia Liza and Josiah Lemanski rewrote the lyrics to include lines about consent, such as a response to the woman's line "I ought to say no, no, no" with the man saying: "You reserve the right to say no".

The tune, which is about a man trying to convince a woman to stay with him instead of going outside into the snow, has been criticised for "alluding to date rape". "The song seems odd now not cuz it's about coercing sex but about a woman who knows her reputation is ruined if she stays".

When the woman says "the answer is no" the man responds: "But baby, it's cold outside".

But on Twitter some people could see why the song could be offensive.

"You have that song all wrong".
