NAPLES, Fla.-A Naples mother is outraged after she says she was forced to watch a simulated sex scene over breakfast. To make matters worse, Rebeca Seitz says she was forced to explain the graphic commercial to her 8-year-old son who was also watching.
"And then, wham. Confusion. Disbelief. Did that just flash on my TV screen? In front of 8-year-old Andy?!" Seitz wrote in her blog.
In an interview Friday, Seitz said, "I object to the idea that I need this over cornflakes and coffee with my kids nearby. That's what I object to."
Her story and viral rant have heated up a national debate over sexy ads on the airwaves. Seitz has been interviewed by media outlets all over the U.S. and even Canada.
"I panicked first, because I quickly turned and I saw that my son's eyes had gone wide," she said about seeing the steamy scene.
Seitz was immediately infuriated over what she saw.
"I quickly got him out of the room, and I rewound it because I though that there's simply no way we saw what we just saw," she said.
Seitz hit rewind and snapped a picture of her T.V. screen. She posted it to facebook, hoping to inspire dialogue, but the social networking site flagged the photo for indecency and removed it.
Seitz claims she's not an advocate for censorship. She says her concern is the morning time slot the ad aired in.
"I'm a parent who chooses to not allow my children to see those images, and so I don't plop my children down in front of the television during primetime."
