Kids ‘f**k up’ Mus­lim ra­dio

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MUS­LIM kids turned a ra­dio sta­tion blue when they played a song that con­tains 53 swear words while their su­per­vi­sor was on a prayer break.

The sta­tion – Be­tar Bangla – apol­o­gised for the blun­der which saw the track by Meek Mill played by the show’s nine-year-old host in Lon­don’s East End.

Dur­ing the song there were 14 in­stances of “f**k” or “f**king”, 10 in­stances of “shit”, 28 in­stances of the N-word and a men­tion of “bitch”.

A com­plaint was made to the reg­u­la­tor, Of­com, re­sult­ing in an probe into the in­ci­dent, which hap­pened in Fe­bru­ary.

They found the adult who was “charged with the re­spon­si­bil­ity of mon­i­tor­ing ed­i­to­rial out­put” was “by un­for­tu­nate co­in­ci­dence tak­ing a bath­room break as well as a prayer break” for 10 min­utes.
