Derksen set Tuesday evening Today Inside having penetrated an unconscious woman with a candle, but nuanced these statements on Wednesday evening. He allegedly put a candlestick between the woman’s legs. The football analyst stated that this was considered normal in the 1970s and that nobody cared about it.
Talpa says he finds it ‘completely inappropriate to approach this theme, which is so extremely sensitive, in a laughing atmosphere’. “For victims of sexually transgressive behavior this must have been a slap in the face. A step back in time, where more attention was finally paid to this problem in recent times. In the previously announced meeting, which took place on Thursday afternoon with the entire presentation team, this was discussed in no uncertain terms.”
According to the spokesperson, Johan Derksen, René van der Gijp and Wilfred Genee have acknowledged that they have handled this completely wrong. “Our conclusion is that a sincere and sincere apology is necessary. The men share that opinion and have indicated that they will do this live in the program tonight. We believe it is important that we continue to have the discussion publicly and that stopping the program hastily now does not contribute to a solution. Pending the progress of this important discussion, we will consider possible further steps.
