TVNZ’s reply to a complaint regarding the humorification (just invented new word :P) of a news item depicting female assaults male. Apparently, the complaints committee also thought that this was a mock-able event adding that it was a celebrity involved.
We didn’t see them mocking when another celebrity was just held by the neck (not even kicked and punched like in this case). The only difference that time was that the neck was a female’s.
We harp on about gender equality, and domestic violence… SO WHY THIS DOUBLE STANDARD???????
ANY FORM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NOT A MATTER OF MOCKING, NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF GENITALS ARE INVOLVED ON EITHER SIDE.
