Churchill Show’s MC Jessy has apologized to a member of the audience who he, during the live recording, embarrassed.
Jessy referred to the man, identified as Mzee Achoka as ugly.
Social media users quickly highlighted the issue, which some said was downright disgusting and rude.
The funny man has since responded to the critics, has apologized to the man and taken “full responsibility for the production of this episode that might have gone in bad taste.”
“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. On behalf of Churchill Show & I, We want to take this apologize to Mzee Achoka, his family and Kenyans in general,” his apology reads in part.
Kenyans still want the comedian to properly apologize to Mzee Achoka on national television, owing to the fact that he probably is not on social media.
Like the way you did on national television, apologize on Natonal TV also.

I really feel bad for Mzee, this is the worst video clip from the Churchill show, you need to be very sensitive to maintain your respect to your audience. I do not know how you can make it up to him.

He has also been castigated for using the word “might” when the clip was really in bad taste.
