Consumer Reports (via OK! Magazine) is really, really mad at Hannah Montana. Like they aren’t going to text or IM her for at least a week. Yeah, they are pissed! They are angry over a little scene in her new 3D concert movie. No the scene doesn’t involve drinking, drugging or sexing! It involves seat belts!
They are calling Miley out for a scene in the movie where she’s riding in the back of a Range Rover with her daddy. Neither of them are wearing seat belts. The driver should have hit the breaks really hard and watched the Cyrus’ fly! Hey! Every good movie needs an action sequence. They even could have gotten that “stunt Hannah Montana” to do it.
Consumer Reports writes:
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in about 55 percent of passenger vehicle fatalities in 2006 (the latest data available), the occupants were not wearing seat belts. Even worse, in the 13- to 15-year-old age group, that percentage climbs to 65 percent. Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by these grim statistics because a 2002 survey by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety showed that when parents were dropping teens off at school in the morning, nearly half the teens weren’t using seat belts.
It seems to us that Miley, her father, and Disney had a perfect opportunity to help influence teens and counteract—rather than encourage—this trend. Then again, as Hannah herself sings, “Everybody makes mistakes.” Maybe Hannah, Billy and Disney, will take a tip from the rest of Hannah’s song and get it right next time around: “Nobody’s Perfect! I gotta work it! Again and again ’til I get it right. Nobody’s Perfect!”
Oh snap! They are fucking peeved with lil’ Miley. They are even bringing the statistics out. I agree with them, so let’s banish Miley for good! Send her to the place where all child stars go….Vh1!
