Wacky World Of Jeanne Moos
Moos was forced to apologize in April 2014, following CNN’s airing of a segment titled “Man in thong: Eyes up here, Duchess!”, which was deemed “insensitive” and “racist” by viewers.
In the roughly two-minute video, Moos mocked New Zealand Maori culture including a traditional dance, costume, a greeting ceremony, and the haka, which she described as “a cross between a Chippendales lap dance and the mating dance of an emu.”
Though CNN has outdone itself in terms of cultural insensitivity by outright mocking an entire culture, Jeanne published a video segment about William and Kate’s visit to New Zealand, in a section titled “The Wacky World of Jeanne Moos.” What’s so wacky? According to her, is the culture of the aboriginal people of New Zealand.
