Except they did back down. They omitted an entire verse of the song that would have been rather pivotal in the whole “modern social messaging” thing.
Lady Gaga, why don’t you ask them about why it’s ok to use the word “tranny” in one episode and omit a social message about transgender people in another?
You’ll notice a verse is missing:
No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life
I’m on the right track baby
I was born to survive
