Hold the phone blocker – someone on Twitter was offended at shitty TV show – it’s a shocker on the rocker!
TVNZ defends ‘disgusting, damaging’ Heartbreak Island incident
TVNZ is defending its controversial new reality show Heartbreak Island after a viewer slammed its portrayal of dating as a popularity contest.
The viewer took to Twitter to condemn the show as “disgusting” and “damaging” and called for TVNZ to air the show at a later time than the 7.30pm timeslot.
The show sees 16 singletons shacking up together in bures on a Fijian island, with regular opportunities to swap partners. The winning couple receives $100,000.
At issue was the moment in Heartbreak Island’s opening episode in which two contestants were revealed to be “the least popular” on Heartbreak Island.
…it gets worse…
Act leader David Seymour copped some flak on social media after Suzy Cato’s elimination from Dancing with the Stars on Monday night but is unrepentant about his survival and has no plans to withdraw.
Despite repeatedly getting much lower scores from the judges than other dancers Seymour has steered clear of the bottom two courtesy of a higher public vote.
Asked if he felt bad about Cato’s demise, Seymour said that was not up to him.
“I got into the show because people voted for me. All the people who are sad that Suzy went should have voted for her.”
Rather than screaming at Matilda Rice and David Seymour, shouldn’t you be more concerned you’re watching bullshit TV in the first place?
Aren’t you complaining about the dealer while smacking your vein?
Meth hysteria, dirty politics, journalists illegally searched and mass surveillance powers – these are the real stories of us as a people, this is abuse of power and yet gets a fraction of our attention compared to Dancing with Mediocrity.
If you have the time to complain about the micro-aggressions on Heartbreak Island, perhaps you have too much time on your hands?
