Amber Heard - Heard Blasts Playboy Show Critics

Hollywood beauty Amber Heard has defended her show The Playboy Club, accusing critics of slamming the series without even watching it.
The show, based on Hugh Hefner's famous 1960s Playboy Club, has faced a barrage of complaints from critics who claim it is chauvinistic, while America's Parents Television Council penned a furious letters to Nbc bosses, demanding they axe the series due to its links to the pornographic Playboy magazine.
Producers shot down the complaints, and now the show's star Heard has urged its detractors to watch it before they take offence.
She says, "The groups that create the controversy have not seen our show. They have no idea what the show is about. They are responding to the Playboy stigma, the word. And you don't watch a show for a word. You watch it for the characters, and that's what this show has...
"I met a lot of ex-Bunnies. I met a lot of women that lived it, breathed it. Not only were women patrons of the club, which is something that was often overlooked, but they were also in charge of heir own destinies. (They) wanted their own fortune and they went out into the work force doing what they wanted to do. I could not be more empowered by that example, and I think denying women their sexuality is just as chauvinistic, if not worse."
