BRIDGEWATER,Va. -- A shocking performance at the MTV Video Music Awards is getting attention from some here in the valley.
Miley Cyrus' performance was provocative enough to spark outrage among groups like the Parents Television Council and one group here in the Valley.
Bill Becker, a volunteer with the Valley Forum said he's not shocked by the risque performance, because that is what MTV is known for.
He said he is disgusted with the former Disney star's performance last night, which showed her dancing with a married man, Robin Thicke.
"To think that a young woman who became affiliated with the Disney people, I guess under Michael Eisner, turned out to be kind of a tramp. Someone who would not be a role model," said Becker.
Becker said he'd much rather see more family programming that promotes a wholesome view of an American family.
He said it's embarrassing for families who have to sit and watch things like Cyrus' performance together.
