Hollywood Blocking Technology Allowing Parents to Skip Gun Violence

NEW VIDEO Demonstrates How Graphic Violence from Warner Bros. PG-13 Rated Movie “Suicide Squad” Could Be Filtered to Protect Children and Families

(Washington, DC—February 22, 2018)

The Protect Family Rights Coalition (PFRC) is a group of family and faith leaders advocating for filtering technology that enables parents to protect their kids from mature content.

PFRC has releasing a new video that serves as an example of how movie filtering can reduce graphic violence in movies aimed at teens. The video clip, created by a streaming filtering service, is from the 2017 Warner Bros. movie “Suicide Squad”—rated PG-13 by the MPAA.

It is a prime example of the kind of violent content that Hollywood has blocked parents from filtering.

Bill Aho, Executive Director of PFRC made this statement:

“Citizens all over America are offering ideas and demanding action to address the problem of gun violence in schools. One element that must be considered is the impact of violent media on children. The Family Movie Act was made law in 2005 to give parents the ability to automatically skip violent content in movies. Yet, due to a lawsuit launched by Disney, Fox and Warner Bros., it is currently impossible to skip this disturbing scene on Amazon, Netflix or any other streaming service.

“No one thing is going to solve this problem. But the less graphic violence our kids are exposed to, the better and healthier they will be. This is an easy step for elected officials from both parties to support families, oppose violence and move our country in the right direction.

“We call on elected representatives in both parties to take immediate action and pass legislation that will allow American families to have unfettered access to any platform offering parents the tools to address this serious issue.”
