Viewers thunders against DR: Racist and distasteful!

on Saturday evening there will be held the annual Danish Collection in the DR, where in the years assembled to the children on the run.

But a special feature in tonight's Denmark Collection have set the minds of the boil with the viewers at home in the living rooms.

In the course of the show were shown a parody of the popular DR-program 'Lion's den' - in Denmark the Collection called 'The Bulge'.

Here are viewers presented with a little girl from Myanmar, who called MibhaMae, and who does not own more than a piece of coal.

Via a Skype connection, she will take part in a satirical video, and asking for 50 bucks from 'the lions', which, however, are somewhat skeptical.

- For what?, will the lions know.

- in Order to survive, the equivalent of the girl, then the lions, among other things, it is not illegal to beg.

You can see the entire video including:

Just the parody has not fallen in the good soil of a large number of viewers who have gone to the keys on DR's Facebook page.

'LANDSINDSAMLING. A very fine background to support children on the run. The Lion the Bulge I think was distasteful', writes one.

'Look at the collection on DR1.. But the dent.. The where fanme ik in order. Whew..', writes another, while a third continues:

'It was as yet the most unsavory and ultra racist attempt at entertainment I've seen in a long time. It is cool to be so privileged that you can make other people's misery for a joke'.

'It's damn uncool to make a parody of the lion cave to landsindsamlingen, and I can't smile over the context in which it takes place in', writes a fourth.

the Extra Leaf has been in contact with Anders Thomsen, who is the editor of Denmark's Collection. He tells that the video has a 'precious message', and that DR therefore take this criticism with a dignified calm.

- the Video has already been shown on the P3's social media for many days. And if you look at the total, so far, the vast majority of responses are positive. But there is really enough no, not like that, he says, and continues:

- so it is with satire, it can share the waters. For us, it has been important to clearly mark, that here is precisely talk about satire, and it says the hosts of the evening very clearly.

According to Anders Thomsen, is the video a very special message, which he yet hope seeps through.

the Video has a noble message, which is all about that you may well help others without getting anything in return. It supports the spirit of tonight's broadcast. You can laugh at the video, but it is also fine, if the awakens to the thought. And the video points so the fingers of ourselves – not of those who need help.
