'Bill Cosby is ruining it for everybody, ' Susan Loesser complained Thursday on NBC News.

The classic holiday song "Baby It's Cold Outside", has been pulled from a Madison, Wisconin radio station's airwaves.

"I personally love performing "Baby It's Cold Outside" and will continue to do so", Deanna told FOX News.

Local Cleveland radio station WDOK Christmas 102.1 pulled the song from its around-the-clock rotation of Christmas music last week after receiving a call from a listener who suggested it is inappropriate in 2018.

Rather than just relegating her comment to the recesses of my mind while driving, I consciously started listening to it more intensely - and came to the realization that the lyrics were, in fact, those of a date rape song.

"If we all believe 'no means no, ' how can you play that song?"

The song, written by composer Frank Lesser, was first performed by him and his wife Lynn garland at a family party, as humorous sketches, hinting that it was time to go. "Please count me in the 90 percent", King said to her co-hosts, John Dickerson and Norah O'Donnell.

A woman whose father wrote the Christmas song "Baby, It's Cold Outside", said people have the meaning of the song all wrong. "I think my father would be furious at that", she told NBC News.

'It was written in 1944.

Broadway composer Frank Loesser and his wife and musical partner Lynn are shown, April 26, 1956 in NY.

Cosby was sentenced to up to 10 years in prison in September for drugging and attacking a woman, but more than 60 others accused him of historic crimes including rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, and sexual misconduct. Susan says connecting the song to the MeToo movement is off the mark.
