I’m sure many of you have kept tabs on the hoopla this past week surrounding the Dutch National Television’s controversial “The Big Donor Show” , about an apparent 37-year-old woman suffering from an inoperable brain tumor who was going to choose amongst three contestants to donate a kidney to before she passed away.
The show was set to air tonight, but presenters revealed today that the show is a hoax and that the woman is not actually suffering from a brain tumor. The entire show was intended to pressure the government to raise public awareness of the need for organ donations.
Worthwhile publicity stunt or tasteless act?
Let’s hear your thoughts.
