The Parents Television Council is upset at TLC for their show Toddlers And Tiaras — after it showed a three-year-old girl wearing the Vivian Ward hooker costume from the Julia Roberts movie, Pretty Woman.

The girl’s parents obviously thought that this was a good idea for the show. The network aired the promo shot, which drew ire from the parents’ group.

The PTC said, “We have a serious problem when the Learning Channel featuring a toddler, who probably hasn’t even learned to read, dressed as a prostitute showing off her sexy strut. There’s no question, TV executives are complicit in robbing these small kids of their childhood.”

They added, “For years we’ve seen adult sexuality being inappropriately and aggressively foisted on innocent young children, but children today are being sexualized at younger and younger ages. All available data suggests they will suffer for it later in life.”

Dear internets, the parents names are not being revealed in what we suspect is a sly move on TLC’s part to make people watch this garbage to further fuel their outrage. In lieu of the right parents to witch-hunt, here’s how to contact Discovery Communications LLC, ethics hotline or write to the address below:
