Actor Jeremy Piven Plays Ari Gold on the hit HBO seriesEntourage
I know this is "only" a television show and its edgy wit is what their loyal viewers expect but, the episode over the weekend sent the wrong message.
In the show Piven plays a high powered agent to the stars inHollywood. When his character Ari Gold is asked if he has a pre nup agreement with his wife the response is:
"I will kill my wife first before I'd let that happen."
Women are being slaughtered in their homes on a daily basis and to think that such a show doesn't have an impact on someone watching who is distraught or angry over their marriage ending, think again. Giving a character this loaded line is no different than handing a viewer a full chamber of bullets.
The impact of this show says to its’ fans that murdering ones’ wife is okay. Every time this episode airs the HBO network is sanctioning murder within the family.

I can understand your point the show should be yanked. Sends a really bad message.
