TV Presenter Sacked Live On Air After Viewers Complain About Her “Inappropriate Outfit”

A Kuwaiti game show host has been sacked from a state-run TV-channel after a number of viewers complained about her “inappropriate outfit”.

Amal Al-Awadhi was live on air when, she claims, she heard TV controllers being ordered to stop the broadcast immediately.

Kuwait is a devout Muslim nation and apparently a number of viewers, who took to Twitter to voice their anger, felt the 29-year-old’s dress was inappropriate during the holy month of Ramadan.

Taking to Snapchat afterwards, Al-Awadhi said: “I heard someone saying, ‘Take Amal Al Awadhi off air now, or I’ll shut down the channel.

“Because my show was airing during Ramadan, I was extra cautious about not going against any of our traditions, I took care of what I wore and how I spoke,” she added.

Thankfully, not all the social media was vitriolic, many viewer’s also defend the presenter’s choice of attire.
