A TV SHOW called Extreme Families had led to its broadcaster, TV JOJ, being slapped with a fine of €25,000 after Slovakia’s Licensing Council ruled on July 10 that the broadcaster had violated the human dignity of one of the participants in the show, the Medialne.sk website reported.
The website wrote that the council found that the show violated the human dignity of a mentally-challenged person and his parents. The council took a first vote on a €50,000 fine but did not approve that sanction.
The broadcaster stated that Extreme Families is a scripted reality show and that the participants are actually acting in the show.
