“CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King came to the defense of the classic holiday song “Baby It’s Cold Outside” on Thursday, questioning her co-anchors whether the controversy surrounding the song’s lyrics meant America was losing its sense of humor.
In a discussion about the song with fellow hosts Norah O’Donnell and John Dickerson, King remarked that she would get “hammered” on social media for her position while explaining that she viewed the song as light, flirtatious banter.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We are losing our sense of humor nowadays,” King said, disagreeing with O’Donnell who had raised concerns about the original performance of the song.
She then says the following:
“And I’m a big supporter and proponent of the #MeToo movement. But I just don’t think we have to nitpick every single little thing. It’s a Christmas song that was written years ago, and you have to look at the intent of the song. And when you look at the intent of the song, to me, it’s a very flirtatious back-and-forth between the two of them. I think you can look at anything and read something in to it these days. I just don’t think that was the case when they wrote that song.”
The radio station’s poll whether to put “Baby It’s Cold Outside” back on the air runs through Monday and at last check, the votes were running more than 90% in the song’s favor. pic.twitter.com/cGvbqADA83
