A popular television show in Shanghai is canceled after two guests admit neglecting to report multiple rapes and receive along with the ‘exploitative’ show media condemnation
The mother and grandmother of a girl they say was raped appeared as guests on the television show, claiming they "dared not call the police" as they had no money and "didn't know anybody from the police station." Social media commenters varied in response from rejecting this explanation, questioning the authenticity of the case or rebuking the show itself as "exploitative." Finally, many online said this exposed "the dark side of society," where many rape cases go unreported, a reality that is backed up by statistics, according to social work experts.
