MTV has been a strong advocate for human rights all over the world - why act differently in Brazil? We urge you to take a stand against hate and violence and immediately drop the partnership between MTV and the blog Testosterona.

UPDATE - October 11th: MTV headquarters in New York have provided responses but no real action, while Testosterona continues to spread their dangerous ideas. More than 8,000 All Out members in Brazil have already spoken up, but we need to dial up the pressure! Sign now!

Published September 13th: MTV hosts one of Brazil’s most viewed blogs, Testosterona. One of their outrageous posts? A quick guide to rape which recommends men “knock out women with a brick”.

MTV refuses to explain why they sponsor and promote such dangerous and offensive content on their own website – but we can change that.

Will you add your name to get the President of MTV Networks, Mr. Van Toffler, to stop sponsoring Testosterona?

Too much hate in the world already - why encourage more?

The site wouldn't respond when I signed, just sat there.
