Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Counsellor Lutterodt recently received backlash after making what many people thought was an unsavoury remark about victims of defilement.
During a discussion on AdomTV, George Lutterodt claimed that "every rape victim enjoys the act”.
The comment attracted outrage from Ama K. Abebrese, Juliet Ibrahim, and rapper EL among others who condemned him as a 'rape apologist.'
In a tweet, Nana Aba also condemned Counsellor Lutterodt, revealing that she had banned him from coming on her station.
She further called out TV and radio stations who still use the controversial man for their shows just to get ratings.
Her tweet said:
“There’s a reason I have banned any producer from featuring him on any show on @GHOneTV. This crass and baloney will not happen under my watch. It has gone on for so long. Shame on radio and TV stations who continue to feature him for ‘ratings’. Senseless ratings."
Following Nana Aba's post, a section of Ghanaians have been reacting to her ban on Counsellor Lutterodt and what the man said.
While there was unanimous condemnation of Lutterodt's comments from Ghanaian celebrities, the reactions from some ordinary Ghanaians are mixed.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection of Ghana has weighed in with respect to comments made by Lutterodt.
In their statement, the Ministry condemned his statement and indicated that there is no justification for such a statement.
It added that it has called on the Ghana Media Commission to ban him from television shows and the Ghana Psychological Council to take the necessary steps with respect to the situation.
The statement also called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to condemn the act and called on him to retract the comment and render an apology.
