Does it come as any surprise that MTV has fully immersed itself in the PC culture? MTV renames its Moon Man award to Moon Person. Seriously.
MTV President spoke with The New York Times on the issue, saying, "why should it be a man? It could be a man, it could be a woman, it could be transgender, it could be nonconformist.”
The trophy is set to make its debut at the 2017 MTV VMAs according to E! News. The VMAs are set to air at the end of the month.
Believe it or not, this is not the first time MTV has done this. In May MTV announced that they would discontinue gender specific awards and will instead consolidate those categories.
Even though a large percentage of MTV's audience is liberal, they think that switching to "Moon Person" is pretty freaking ridiculous.
So stupid 🙄 "man" can be used to refer to men and women as one. Humans are often referred to as 'mankind' and no ones thinks it's just men

The first person who went to the moon was a man. We are all mankind (women/male). This is beyond extra.

Sounds lame, they need to stop trying so hard to be woke

Has there been American women on the moon? If so, it's ok. If not, unnecessary (for now).

Have they considered that no one cares?

It's been reported by Metro that Katy Perry will be hosting the VMAs at the end of August. In the promos leading up to the show she has been floating in zero gravity.

The crazy things MTV will do in an attempt to stay relevant. As you can obviously tell from the Twitter backlash, everyone knows this is a ridiculous stunt.
