Netherlands: Anne Frank jokes on Utopia show

Via Televizier:

Utopia is a reality series in which a group of 15 people are placed in isolation for a year and attempt to maintain an ideal society.

This week, two of the residents told antisemitic jokes.  The two were moving a bookcase and one told the other "Anne Frank is already out, so that's a few kilo less."  The second said: "Maybe there's still a few more Jews hiding there."

John de Mol, creator of the show, was not happy with the commenets, but pointed out that the same statments by well-known Dutch comedians would be acceptable humor.
