An official said Tuesday, authorities in Egypt have ordered a ban on airing the Arabic version of the hit U.S. satirical show Saturday Night Live. This for allegedly using "sexual expressions."
Ahmed Salim of the council told the Associated Press, an investigation of the show's content by the Supreme Media Regulatory Council showed that SNL Arabia has consistently used inappropriate "sexual phrases and insinuations that should not be presented to viewers." He said, the show's entire content "violates ethical and professional criteria."
SNL Arabia was first aired in Egypt two years ago. It follows an identical format to that of its U.S. namesake.
