Watch a sneak peek of next week’s episode.
MTV has released a new racy trailer of its controversial new series Skins.
The clip features Tea (Sofia Black D’Elia), a lesbian struggling with coming out.
Skins has come under fire this week by the Parents Television Council, which claims MTV's parent company, Viacom, has knowingly produced material that may well be in violation of several anti-child pornography laws.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Taco Bell pulled its ads – and on Friday, the PTC said GM has put the show on its “do not buy” list.
