[News] I made an Indian Girl cry - you can do it too - Disturbing trend emerging




Hi, I normally dont post news items from the web as they are there for all to see but this one really upset me.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/987643.cms

In another article a US radio station has actually broadcast an abusive call to an Indian Call Centre where he calls her a *itch.

I used to work as an IT Recruiter for a large company in the States and have received some pretty abusive emails myself - but this is way too much.

I feel sorry for Girl. She should have abused that multi-fathered product having a life time dream to know who has fathered him, on the first instance mention of bitch.

If you listen to call or read the transcript, it is lewd and abusive and the radio jockeys have been suspended though only for 1 day!

The one day suspension is VERY surprising considering how the new "conservative" FCC is cracking down on media after the Janet Jackson fiasco.

Considering the huge fines that Howard Stern's employer recently paid, this punishment ain't even a slap on the wrist.

To me, its not just going too far... its a hate crime
Yeah, I found it pretty disturbing too...

Manmohan Singh Desai today asked Indian Media to go international.
Wonder, if thats because he was briefed about the tsunami BY the television media ;)
Anyways, Whenever that happens, we would have yet another voice standing up against hate crimes like this.

I guess the FCC would react only if they are made aware by tons of people that this was an abuse.

Just putting a SORRY note on ur website doesnt heal wounds you make. If it was just a publicity stunt to grab some attention, it was sick.

Bison :(

Don't worry - their stupidity and arrogance will take them down soon enough.

Pride goes before a fall, remember, and they are also stupid and arrogant to boot.

So hang in there - it is only a matter of time before they go the way the Romans went.

Remember Ozymandias....

Call Centre Abuse
I read the entire script and must say that it is appalling. It just goes to show what Americans can get away with. Can you imagine an Indian radio station calling a call centre in the States and abusing the call centre rep.

Don't worry, it is only a matter of time before India and other South Asian countries become economic superpowers.
May not happen in our lifetime, but the process has already started....

it is disgusting. there is truly something predatory about americans. they will do anything for money. they lack a sense of social responsibility. they can step over the homeless on their way to work and don't even consider it.

hundreds of thousands of homeless, 2 million people in prison, 50 MILLION PEOPLE WITHOUT HEALTHCARE, and none of these were even election issues!

all they seem to want to do is to make their million and retire to a complex with security guarding them and a smith and wesson under their bed and to hell with what goes on outside their doors.

this humiliation of this woman was just a ruthless stunt to make money... it's nothing new or surprising... just another american ploy to make money no matter how many victims it causes... look at iraq...
