Rebel Wilson protests police strippers with expletive at MTV VMAs

Comedienne Rebel Wilson gave MTV censors a hard time at the Video Music Awards on Sunday night (30Aug15) when she stripped to unveil a T-shirt with an expletive printed on it.

The Australian actress stepped up to the microphone to present the Best Hip Hop Video to Nicki Minaj dressed as a policewoman, and joked she hated strippers who show up at parties dressed as cops.


She then peeled off her official-looking outfit to reveal a T-shirt that read 'F**k Tha Stripper Police' - a nod to rap act N.W.A.'s anti-establishment anthem F**k Tha Police.


Censors panned out to wide shots of the buxom star but not until TV viewers had glimpsed the expletive-laden T-shirt.


Defiant Wilson continued, "You know who I'm talking about. They come to your house, you think you're getting arrested, and you just get a lap dance that is usually uninspired.


"I hired a police stripper for my grandma's 80th and he wouldn't even feel her up... I hate this injustice, hence the shirt."
