A response from the quiz master left on this blog:
We take this Critisism very seriously and are fully apologetic for any offence caused by the comments made on the night.
The view represented in the quiz are not those of radio or its staff. The quiz was meant in the upmost humour and all questions are specifically designed to shock for comic effect. These views are the polar opposite to my own and are written to poke fun and the common views found within popular media. Though the format is one of a quiz, we aimed to make it humorous also and we have obviously over-stepped the mark and so we are sorry.
We would like to apologise again to anyone who was offended either at the quiz or after and specifically to the participant who wrote the blog.
The quiz has now been terminated in radio and all media outlets for the quiz are in the process of being deleted.
Again, these views are not my own and were written to shine light on the misojinistic views of society in a comical context.
Now if I may. If this line was the case, me and my teammates would not have been deducted points, we would not have been told that we are not welcome again, and the quiz master would not have tried to ridicule us over the microphone. Furthermore my complaint would have been taken seriously at the time, rather than laughed of, and the quiz master would not have stated that he was going to continue making his quiz ‘rapey’.
Nice statement, but it will not fool anyone, and I really think it is quite insulting to all that this has been released, clearly with the help of G1. We all still remain waiting for G1′s response to the previous response given which can be seen on the previous blog post.
