Bill Cosby Blamed For "Baby It's Cold Outside" Radio Ban

"Baby, It's Cold Outside" is coming under fire 74 years after the song's creation.

Echoing Loesser, King said: 'It's a Christmas song that was written years ago, and you have to look at the intent of the me, it's a very flirtatious back-and-forth between the two of them'.

The fate of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and its radio play is still up in the air. Interestingly enough, the song itself may now be a holiday classic, but it's not actually a holiday song.

The CBS piece mentioned San Francisco radio station KOIT is conducting a poll to see if the song, which it banned Monday, should remain off its playlist. "Ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time" in reference to the song.

"I personally love performing "Baby It's Cold Outside" and will continue to do so", Deanna told FOX News.

She noted that she's particularly aggravated about the backlash because "it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties".

"This song is not about an abuse of power, it is about flirtation and that is how flirtation was in those days", Susan said, adding that she doesn't want the song connected to the #MeToo movement.

Frank Loesser, the song's writer, wouldn't be happy about the ban.

The decision to stop playing the song has divided audiences.

Susan went as far to blame Bill Cosby for music listeners getting so politically correct that a Cleveland radio station pulled the song from its rotation of Christmas music.

Those against the song say it promotes date rape, describing a man pressuring a woman to stay despite her adamantly telling him "no, no, no". "People used to say "what's in this drink" as a joke".
