Morocco TV Show Apologizes for Advising Makeup to Hide Abuse

Monday, 28 November 2016 10:05 AM

RABAT, Morocco (AP) — A makeup tutorial on a Moroccan TV show that offered tips on using cosmetics to disguise signs of domestic abuse has drawn sharp criticism, a petition from indignant women and, finally, a televised apology.

The daily women's show "Sabahiyat" apologized on Monday for the airing the segment last week and promised to "exercise more precision" in the future.

The program featured a demonstration "to show you the makeup you can use to cover the bruises on your face" on Wednesday to mark to the International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women.

By Friday, a video of the tutorial posted on the internet had sparked outrage on social media. A petition signed by nearly 2,000 people was sent to Morocco's High Authority for Audiovisual Communications, which called a meeting Monday.
