August 17, 2016 – Fat Shamed Female Egyptian TV Presenters, Women Suspended , Ordered To Slim Down Before Returning To Work
Egypt’s National TV has suspended 8 women from its female TV presenters. The plus size women were ordered to go on a diet and lose weight before returning to work.
ERTU (Egyptian Radio & TV union) gave the women 4 weeks to slim down before they can air any program again.
Sadly, the announcement was made on live TV.
Haba!! This is human right abuse.
