Elie Sleiman on MTV’s Menna w Jor featured two jokes from the LBC TV show Haram as part of his “Joke of the week” section. I’m really glad Sleiman picked up these jokes because one of them is extremely racist and inappropriate (it’s about black people and white chocolate) and that Pierre pointed out that it’s a racist joke, just a lame one.
To be honest, I have no idea how someone approved this script but then again this whole show “Haram” should not be on air.
Start watching at Minute 09:15
sigh…. unconditional freedom of speech, wether you love it, like it, hate it, loathe it or whatever.. unconditional freedom of speech is the only guard for democracy otherwise the will always be someone in an office who you in advance have given the right to tell you what to read, what see, what to watch and how to think. Unless you can find that officer who on your behalf is give the right to filter what you intellectually need, i say stick to freedom of speech.
I agree with freedom of speech, but certain religions and or politicians shouldn’t be free from mockery or criticism aka free speech.
Ironic how it’s a racist and the show opens up with a black singer, Kelis “Milkshake “
