Wow! We can't even believe this show lasted as long as it did.
If you thought Jerry Springer's talk show was low class, wait until you catch a glimpse of José Luis Sin Censura (above), a Spanish-speaking talk show that caters to the ignorant minds that are holding this country back.
Episodes regularly featured male guests being berated as a "puto" (which translates to "f*ggot") or female guests being called a "puta" ("whore) by the ENTIRE audience!
While physical confrontations are often teased, but usually prevented on Springer, guests accused of being gay were PUMMELED by other guests and even some irrational audience members!
Yes, this wildly offensive daytime guilty pleasure for Spanish-speaking Americans allowed and basically endorsed hate crimes.
However, thanks to the efforts of GLAAD and the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), the show — which aired in over 30 markets across the country — has been PERMANENTLY removed from the EstrellaTV network's schedule.
Alex Nogales, President & CEO of NHMC, applauded the decision by saying:
“This is a hard-fought victory for tolerance, inclusion, and decency and it is further proof that programming that degrades or threatens the safety of entire segments of our population has no place in this country. For broadcasters that choose this path, this will always be the outcome. Spreading hatred and bigotry is not a sustainable business model.”
Absolutely! And it only makes this kind of appalling behavior appear to be acceptable. We're so GLAAD to wave bye-bye to this awful show!
