The Supreme Audiovisual Council of France has banned Rihanna’s music video for “We Found Love” from daytime television for being too explicit. They believe the clip could inspire “self destructive behavior.”
The video, which shows the pop star smoking, shoplifting and engaging in a violent relationship with a Chris Brown look-a-like, model Dudley O’Shaughnessy can now only be shown after 10 PM.
It’s the second video this year from the singer that has received some type of ban. Riri’s clip for “S&M” was banned in 11 countries after it was deemed to be too raunchy.
