More Than 10,000 People Sign Petition To Ban Counsellor Lutterodt From TV & Radio
It appears the calls for controversial personality, Counsellor George Lutterodt to be taken off mainstream media is not going away anytime soon as over 10,000 persons have signed an online petition to ban the loudmouth counsellor.
A petition initiated by one Ivy Prosper on change.org has been able to gather more than 10,000 signatures as at the time of filing this report.
The said petition which is addressed to The Ministry of Communication, National Communications Authority, All Media Outlets in Ghana, and Ghana Psychology Council, reads in part:
George Lutterodt has openly said on Adom TV in an interview that he feels rape victims enjoy the act of being raped. When questioned on his statement he continued to justify his belief that when someone is being raped, the victim enjoys the act. This type of statement to a national audience on television only promotes rape culture. George Lutterodt is a ‘rape apologist’ who justifies the aggression of rape and sees no consequences in the act.
This petition is to ask media outlets in Ghana to stop giving George Lutterodt a platform to spread his damaging message to the masses.
The Ghana Psychology Council already has told the media last year that they should stop making reference to him and stop having him as a commentator. The Psychology Council has said that he is not qualified for the title of Counsellor and he is not licensed.
We implore the media houses, newspapers, online sites, radio stations to ban him from future appearances on TV and Radio stations.
