    CLEVELAND (WSYX/WTTE) - A radio station in Cleveland, Ohio has decided to stop playing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" after listeners say the song has predatory undertones amid the "Me Too" movement.

    WDOK Star 102.1 pulled the song from its rotation after receiving a call from a listener who suggested it is inappropriate, according to a report by WJW.

    The song written in the 1940's has suggestions that a woman has to leave a man’s house as he tries to lure her to stay.

    “I really can’t stay,” to which the man responds, “but baby, it’s cold outside.”

    The report stated that the radio station said the decision to remove the song was not theirs, but their listeners. However, a poll on the station's Facebook page showed over 90 percent of people say it's a classic.
