Over 10,500 sign petition to ban George Lutterodt from TV & Radio, in less than 24 hours

Published

on

There has been a strong call on social media to ban counselor George Lutterodt from TV & Radio in Ghana, since he made comments about ‘rape victims enjoying in the process’.

A petition on Change.Org by Ivy Prosper has gathered steam garnering almost 11,000 signatures in less than 25 hours. According to the petition which is addressed to The Ministry of Communication, National Communications Authority, All Media Outlets in Ghana, and Ghana Psychology Council, George Lutterodt’s comments and behavior in the media are unacceptable. Read the statement below:

 

George Lutterodt has openly said on Adom TV in an interview that he feels rape victims enjoy the act of being raped.  When questioned on his statement he continued to justify his belief that when someone is being raped, the victim enjoys the act. This type of statement to a national audience on television, only promotes rape culture. George Lutterodt is a ‘rape apologist’ who justifies the aggression of rape and sees no consequences in the act.

Women and children are the biggest number of victims suffering from rape and physical abuse on a regular basis, it’s a shame that media gives a public platform to a person who only serves to give rapists in the community justification for their heinous acts. Statistic from the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service reveals that six women are raped every week. These numbers only represent the number of women who actually report the cases.  There are countless others who suffer in silence because of fear and stigma attached to being a rape victim.

This petition is to ask media outlets in Ghana to stop giving George Lutterodt a platform to spread his damaging message to the masses.

The Ghana Psychology Council already has told the media last year that they should stop making reference to him and stop having him as a commentator. The Psychology Council has said that he is not qualified for the title of Counsellor and he is not licensed.

We implore the media houses, newspapers, online sites, radio stations to ban him from future appearances on TV and Radio stations.

Citi TV, Joy Prime, Konkonsa TV, Adom TV, Agoo TV, Ashaiman TV, Atinka TV, Crystal TV ,DGN, e.tv Ghana, GHOne TV, GTV, GBC 2, Metro TV, Net 2 TV, Obonu TV, Oceans TV, Onua TV, Pan-African TV, Praise TV, Trotro TV, TV Africa, TV XYZ, TV3, UTV, and 4Stye TV are among the popular TV stations that should BAN him from appearances.

Popular radio stations including, CitiFM, JoyFM, Angel FM, STARR FM, KASAPA FM, Rainbow Radio, Adom FM, Peace FM, Asempa FM, Radio Gold, Radio XYZ, HITZ FM, Live FM, Breeze FM, 3FM, Okay FM, Hot FM, Unique FM, Radio Universe and many more, should also ban him from any interviews and appearances on the radio.

Published

on

Kumasi came to a virtual standstill as a star-studded line up of the biggest culture change makers in the country and region came together to thrill guests at the Guinness Bright House Experience held at the Golden Bean Hotel.

The Bright House Experience, a fundamental part of the Guinness Black Shines Brightest campaign, is a model bar which will serve as a cultural space and a hub for people to connect and energize each other with creativity, inspiration and, of course, a cold bottle of Guinness.

Graced by several celebrities, media influencers, culture makers and industry partners, the launch of the Guinness Bright House Experience in Kumasi was the melting pot for the celebrations of talent and achievements.

The Bright House Experience started with performances from some of the top Kumerica artistes who set the tone, with guests screaming for more at each performance.

Camidoh, Wendy Shey, Strongman, Mr. Drew and AMG Business Beyond Kontrol rapper, Medikal dropped hit song after hit song getting patrons gyrating and singing in unison as they performed.

With all the exciting performances, the crowd had lots of energy to jive along with Incredible Zigi, Face of the Black Shines Brightest Campaign. He showed off his dance skills with his Afrozig crew to a variety of songs and eventually taught the audience the viral dance to the theme song for the campaign.

The Bright House Experience will see Guinness working closely with bars across the country, to show the company’s commitment to partnering with its customers and consumers for the best lived experiences when enjoying a cold bottle of Guinness. These bars will also appear in Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale.

One of Ghana’s best reggae selectors, African Child kept the momentum on as he engaged the crowd with his ‘Kumoo’ hit song.

The next stop for the Guinness Bright House Experience is Tamale where consumers will get to feel and enjoy the Black Shines Brightest campaign.
