    A Cleveland Radio station has decided to stop playing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" after listeners say the song has predatory undertones amid the "Me Too" movement.

    FOX 8 Cleveland reports WDOK Star 102.1 pulled the song from its rotation after receiving a call from a listener who suggested it is inappropriate.

    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.”

    FOX 8 reported 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.
