BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – A new PSA released by the Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts is encouraging young men to pull up their pants.
"So you think you look pretty good wearing your pants like that don't you? Underwear exposed, hip-hop style" asks an officer in the video. "Well there's something you may not know."
The video, posted on YouTube on Tuesday, goes on to say that anyone caught wearing their pants low could face fines up to $300 and up to three years in prison as part of Massachusetts' open and gross lewd and lascivious behavior law.
"Pull up your pants. Respect yourself," the officer says.
It was not immediately known if anyone had ever been charged for wearing their pants too low in the state.
The video had more than 3,000 views Friday afternoon.
