Unsurprisingly, the show has been branded humiliating and sexist by viewers, reports the Daily Mail.
Women walk onto the set in a bath robe, which they then remove so Blachman,and his guest can assess their figures with comments such as “Very animated nipples” and “How’s that p****’ working out for you?”
Blachman, who is a Danish X-Factor judge, insisted he was actually doing women a favour and that his show – which has the eponymous title Blachman – has the objective of ‘discussing the aesthetics of a female body without allowing the conversation to become pornographic or politically correct’.
Many disagree. Author Knud Romer said: ‘The programs so-called intention of breaking down taboos or challenging stereotypes is rubbish. It’s more like a claustrophobic strip club which only serves to cement classic concepts of male dominance. Basically, things like this should have been able consigned to the scrap heap of history years ago.”
Blachman responded saying: “Ungratefulness is the only thing that can really wear down the few geniuses who reside in our country. ‘Remember, I am giving you something that you have never seen before. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”
