. . . the stage parents who allowed their young kids to be cast in this “rendition” of a scene from “Scarface,” complete with constant use of the word, “fudge,” as in “mother-fudger” and “fudge you,” as well as machine guns and murder. Although it’s NOT a school play as labeled (that part is a hoax), the kids were cast in this video by Mark Klasfeld and Rockhard Films, who made Lady Gaga’s “Pokerface” video. (Get an original idea, Mark. It’s been done already, in a much more classy way, via 1976’s “Bugsy Malone.”)
But it really doesn’t matter that it’s not a school play, nor that it was staged for money via a casting call and Hollywood agents. These kids can’t be more than eight, nine, or ten years old. Just terrif that they’re being introduced–and desensitized–to this crap at such a young age. It’s hardly the same thing as playing cops and robbers with toy guns. Not even close. Whether or not the kids are “professional actors” is a distinction without a difference.
Say hello to my leetle child abuse. . .
Even Tony Montana doesn’t approve.
Please Make It Stop
