Busy being Offended

Good grief, some people become outraged over the silliest things…first world problem’s people…

A Toronto hospital has pulled its obstetrics-themed parody video of “Gangnam Style” after a birthing group complained it was “offensive.”

Initially uploaded to Sunnybrook Hospital’s YouTube channel on Dec. 14, it features medical residents horse-dancing through hospital hallways, flying plastic babies, and a doctor said to be covered in “five bodily fluids.”

OB/GYNE Style” (disclaimer: the video may be offensive to some viewers) was removed on Dec. 19 amid criticisms from Humanize Birth, but was later reposted by another YouTube user on Dec. 22. The group, which aims to reduce “traumatic birth experiences” for women, is demanding a public apology from the hospital and the University of Toronto’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (the university is affiliated with Sunnybrook).

“Some people found this video highly offensive and considered its endorsement by Sunnybrook Hospital and its indirect endorsement by the University of Toronto’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology disrespectful towards birthing women, babies and the birth process in general,” Humanize Birth said in a statement Monday.

Of course someone has already posted it again…how’d that outrage work out for ya.
