There was more fallout surrounding the continued Ishawna-Foota Hype drama where the Broadcasting Commission has launched a probe into the graphic nature of the contest of a September 20th interview of Foota Hype on the CVM television programme, Onstage. The selector made repeated references to ‘oral sex’ and ‘threesomes’ while discussing his failed relationship with singer, Ishawna. The Commission will be deliberating on the matter at its next meeting scheduled for September 29.
The interview prompted one person to write to The Gleaner last week, criticising the producers of the programme a daily newspaper on September 24, and lambasting the Broadcast Commission for condoning vulgarity. However, Winford Williams, producer and host of Onstage, hit back.
“What is the breach? Is it the word ‘oral sex’, or the context of sex and infidelity? It did not occur to us that the word ‘threesome’ or ‘oral sex’ would have been a breach of any broadcasting rules or whether those words would have been offensive to viewers,” he said.
Mr. Williams said that the programme has not received any official correspondence or reprimand from the regulatory body.
“We have not heard from the Commission in any official capacity. However , it would be interesting to hear how people will respond to Ishawna’s story of abuse, and how difficult she found it to get a restraining order. I hope that these ‘crusaders of morality’ will take up the issue and help other mothers out there who are crying for the system to work,” he said.
