How can TopTV air this ad?

2012-11-07 10:38
TopTV has been facing much public scrutiny after is has sold advertising space to air ad an ad from, in which it promotes adultery.

Here is what some Channel24 users say about the advert:

Judy Johnstone: "The advert is perhaps commercial savvy. But what if TopTV employees were found in the same position as the advert suggests!? Would they accept their husbands/wifes having affairs and what message are we trying to give to our youth?!"

Andries and Sandy: "This is morally corrupt and totally irresponsible behaviour. These kinds of adverts are desensitising young minds especially, and will lead to an even more debased society, with more broken homes, more ruined children, more hate, more selfishness (you name it) in South Africa! Media channels should have the guts to say no to this kind of ad."

Jimmy Meyer: "This is morally corrupt, reprehensible and an exploitation of the worst in man.  It is in essence a complete departing from God and His ways.  God will not be mocked, though this might succeed in the short term, there is judgement after death which will bring all things to light and this sin will be judged."

Frank Naude: "We know these things do happen. To promote adultery shows how morally bankrupt we have become. This is even beyond porn - I look forward to they day TopTV finally become financially bankrupt as well. SA needs strong families, youth who feel secure and who can focus on growing up. We need honesty, love and we need to care for one another. We should say "no" to all forms of corruption."
