William Shatner contends with fans defending 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'

Actor William Shatner took his disapproval of some radio stations banning the Christmas song “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to Twitter, calling out his fans to rally behind him.


The “Star Trek” icon decided to stand against the ongoing controversy surrounding the Christmas song, which allegedly sings about a man’s persisting advances toward a woman despite her continued refusal.

For the same reason, the song was ousted by several radio stations, which has frustrated Shatner and led him to take his disapproval to Twitter.

On December 11, Shatner took a firm stance against this and tweeted an appeal to his fans writing, “Call in to CBC radio all day and get them to play ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ over and over until midnight!”

The 87-year-old actor reacted to a news report about CBC spokeswoman Nicola Makoway’s announcement that the broadcaster planned to remove the song with “no plans to play it going forward.”

Shatner then encouraged his followers to call into the radio station and pressure them for playing the song.

The actor even called out the censorship on the classic song to be nothing but a judgment passed on through “2018 myopic glasses.”


Some of Shatner’s fans tried to come to his defense by reminding others that his tweet was him “joking around.” But the actor himself had some other ideas.

He chimed in yet again and replied to such fans by clearing stating that he is actually serious about what he is saying.

Even when CBC Music later tweeted that the song was back streaming on its stations, the actor did not hold back. He posted another tweet stating that he would still call the station and make the Christmas song request “just to stick it to the Myopia Censorship Club members!”


Shatner further argued that the true essence of the song, which was reflected more by the 1949 choreography for the song rather than its lyrics, was completely disregarded by the censorship.


Now closing down on 90, the actor is one of the most active figures in Hollywood. About a month ago, he opened up about his secret of an energetic life while speaking for an interview with LA Times.

Shatner revealed during the conversation that consistent workouts and exercises including swimming, running, and horse riding helped him stay healthy and creative even in his late 80’s.
