Jokes cause one of the most popular shows to be censored

March 16, 2017

The host of one of the most popular talk shows in Serbia, Ivan Ivanović, announced on his twitter account that the management of commercial company TV Prva had told him that they had dropped part of his show “which they think Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić will not like”.

They dropped part of the show “Evening with Ivan Ivanović and men” in which Ivanović and his guests jokingly discuss the penises of the presidential candidates and one of them notes that Vučić has a “micro penis”.

The management of TV Prva stated that it is not censorship, but rather that part was dropped due to vulgarity.

Afterwards, however, pro-regime tabloid Informer wrote in several of its editions about how this related to “the most pathetic campaign against Vučić ever seen”.
