THE SATURDAY NIGHT Show is set to host a debate on homophobia this Saturday night.
The show, presented by Brendan O’Connor, is at the centre of controversy after it apologised for remarks made about homophobia on the programme nearly three weeks ago.
According to a statement from RTE, this week,
The Saturday Night Show will host a debate on homophobia; what constitutes homophobia and who gets to define the word?
A spokesman from RTE indicated that details of who will feature on the panel will be announced closer to transmission.
Also on the show this week are two members of Russian punk protest group Pussy Riot, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina.
