Video / Journalist gret is criticized by the network after racist comments about Albanians
"What is more common than an Albanian with a gun? Greek journalist Nikos Evangelatos has been criticized on social media after this racist statement during a television broadcast.
Evangelatos was presenting the reports of the police bulletin for the arrest of a citizen and described it as a 'normal' incident, because the arrested person is of Albanian origin.
And while still in the newsletters we have the need to first learn the origin of an perpetrator and then what he did, how the arrest evolved, etc., we have Mr. Evangelatos perpetuating racist prejudices and openly stigmatizing our fellow human beings. @ ANT1TV # Ευαγγελατος pic.twitter.com/SucUE9dVMl- weirdman but (@ mixalis44424132) January 10, 2022
Specifically, he said: "What is more common than an Albanian with a gun?".
He then rushed in vain to justify his statement, arguing that it was not a nationalist comment.
However, viewers and users of social networks did not "chew the excuse" and criticized the journalist for his statement.
