A Romanian TV host likens Serena to one of 'those monkeys at the zoo'!

A Romanian TV show host has been accused of 'extreme racism' after saying Serena Williams looks like one of 'those monkeys at the zoo' live on air

Quote:
"Serena Williams looks exactly like one of those monkeys at the zoo with the red asses," said Radu Bancui whilst presenting the late evening show on B1 TV. "If monkeys wore trousers, they'd look exactly like Serena Williams does on the court."
Quote:
Bancui has been fined $1,875 by the National Council for Combatting Discrimination (CNCD) who referred to his comments as "extreme racism."
Fortunately the guy got punished for his terrible words. It's really sad to see that we are still hearing these kind of racist statements in 2019

Yeah, the fine was probably just a slap on the wrist for him thinking about it.

Wow... so surprised this reached foreign news outlets I mean, it's not like the first time he or others in romanian media says something more or less like this about Serena.

But he says even worst things about Halep tbh He's basically what you wuold describe as a "shock-jock" with a late night tv show.

I saw this a few days ago but didn't want to amplify it so I refrained from posting it here...
"....

Radu Banciu, a Romanian TV host who presents a late-evening TV show at local news station B1 TV, was sanctioned by the National Council for Combatting Discrimination (CNCD) for “extreme racism” after comparing American tennis champion Serena Williams to a monkey.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bte8XkxHS6g ... e=ig_embed

The CNCD slapped a RON 8,000 (EUR 1,700) fine on Banciu arguing that this was not the first time he made such comments.

“Serena Williams looks like those monkeys at the zoo with the red butt. If you put some pants over that butt, they look exactly as Serena Williams looks on court,” Banciu said on TV, according to CNCD, which commented that the statement is discriminatory and breaches the right to dignity.

“Black people slavery was based, among others, on comparing them with monkeys. Consequently, such statements represent a form of extreme racism,” CNCD said in a press release.

Re: A Romanian TV host likens Serena to one of 'those monkeys at the zoo'!

That's nothing compared to the treatment Halep got

Still, this has to be the saddest story of a tv host making unwarranted predictions that turn up the complete opposite there is. I kid you not, this specimen kept saying that Halep cannot win a major and disregarded her entire career titles while calling her all the names in the book. He tried to recover after she won RG saying that it's the worst slam so yeah it kinda doesn't matter and he's still right. Then Halep wins Wimbledon and i think that this loser actually quit his job at the same time lmao. Mental breakdown? Quite possibly.

I am not exaggerating any of this, this guy is your average TF Halep hater but he was actually saying it unironically on TV. You might just ask me, well, is there a market for this, are people actually watching this for his comentary? I think the answer is (hopefully) no, but for sure there is one for people tuning in to watch a guy putting in the clown suit, the clown makeup and doing clown things for half an hour or what his show is.

Whenever I remember about this guy I start smiling, it's simply poetry

I don't watch the guy. He's a complete moron that has a TV show on one of the lowest rating TV channels in the country. He attacks everything that moves. He's a racist, antisemite, xenophobe... add whatever other qualifiers like these... piece of shit that doesn't deserve any attention. Please make this thread 200 posts now. About Romanians and how they all suck.

What should romanian posters say, that they are terribly sorry to have a brain damaged tv host as compatriot and take a knife to cut their own veins? GTFO with your random hate instigation. Romanian people has nothing to do with a specific imbecile individual. Imbeciles are everywhere. You might be an example for instance, and you (i guess) are not romanian. Douche.

He was gentle with Serena, poor Halep is a mockery subject for years in that show

And that show has decent audience, like many other cheap quality TV channels that are present in every country. Unfortunately there is a quite big market for this type
