With forest fires raging all over Greece, the racist presentation of ERT’s newsletter host Alexandras Douvara made blood run cold.
“The only pleasant thing is that we have not mourned the lives of people other than 18 immigrants who died by being charred,” the speaker said, and is the target of criticism in the Greek media.
The IN.GR news site said this was an unacceptable reference, claiming that “Immigrants are people of a lower god, their lives are not as important as the lives of the Greeks,” according to the announcer.
Efimerida newspaper also described the commentary of the presenter as “shameful”.
Social media users in Greece demanded action against the server under the hate law.
