Big Brother Africa outrage: shows broadcast rape.. live!

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Nov 1, 2007.

  1. Wow. Saw this on the Drudge this morning. Wow.


    Excerpt from the story.

    However, viewers of the incident, which took place on Saturday afternoon after an extended drinking bout which ended in copious vomiting and apparent blackout for Molokwu, remain adamant about what they saw: Bezuidenhout lay down next to the comatose young woman and penetrated her vagina with his fingers. He carried on despite the pleas of another female housemate for him stop. Under the law in South Africa - where, on average, a woman is sexually assaulted every 40 seconds - such an act constitutes rape.
    Bezuindehout, who is married, finally desisted and went off to sit by himself while drunkenly sniffing his fingers. At this point the producers of the show did intervene, sending paramedics into the house and cutting the live feed. ... Bezuindehout, defending his sexual behaviour in a show that has featured copious nudity, recently told his housemates, "Well, this is Africa."

    Broadcasting rapes? This seems like the logical progression for network TV.

    Anybody got a problem with it?

    At this point, I am just numb to anything.

    I'm completely floored that google or whatever hosting service SJ has didn't put up an ad for the Republican Party in the message body.

    The show says it was consensual... are you telling me that there was video of the Berg beheading readily available, but no copy of this floating around?
