'kicking man in testicles not justified' says Broadcasting Authority
The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland has upheld a complaint against RTE for a comment condoning violence against men . 
  
The complaint related to a segment of the Eoghan McDermott Show broadcast on 8th march 2018 on RTÉ 2FM . 
 
During the programme , The presenter Eoghan McDermott in an interview with the Director General of RTÉ Dee Forbes asked her whom she would like to kick in the testicles. 
 
The complainant found the comment offensive and discriminatory towards men and was of the view that it promoted violence against men. The complainant stated that the comment was insensitive and was unjustified and that Dee Forbes, in her role of Director General, should have corrected the comment. 
 
The complaint was brought under the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland's Code of Programme Standards (Principle 5 Respect for persons and groups in society) . All Broadcasters in Ireland must ensure programming is compliant with the Broadcasting Act 2009 and broadcasting codes published by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) . 
 
In its determination of the issue , the BAI Compliance Committee stated that although they did not find the comment unduly offensive or discriminatory towards men , the complainant's assertion that the comment condoned violence towards men was legitimate and 'the specific wording used, i.e. the reference to kicking a man in the testicles, was not justified' . As a result, the Committee decided to uphold the complaint against RTE .
