Comedian MC Jesse apologises for awkward joke on elderly man
Comedian MC Jesse has apologized for a joke gone awry after he suggested that a member of the audience was not good looking.
The member of audience, who has since been identified as Mr Achoka, was an old man who had attended the Churchill Show edition in Nakuru town.
Even worse, was how the Churchill Show cameraman zoomed on the graying, bespectacled Mr Achoka and his image was showed on the giant screen mounted at the venue.
“Ladies hello… hawa machali handsome si wako peke yako, kuna wengine pia wanawaona…eee…tafuta kimtu tu, kiko na sura yake, private, sura personal,” MC Jesse had told the audience and sparking laughter.
As this happened, the camera focused on Mr Achoka who was even seen frowning.
It is then that the comedian realized that his joke had gone overboard and decided to say that he was not talking about Mr Achoka.
“Hapana…no…sio huyo. Hapana, huyo ni,” he said.
The disparaging remark by MC Jesse sparked a heated debate on social media on Monday, with many fans demanding for an apologise.
Hours later, the Churchil Raw host issued a poorly written apology, taking full responsibility for the goof.
“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. On behalf of Churchill Show & I, we want to take this apologise (sic) to Mzee Achoka, his family and Kenyans in general. I take full responsibility for the production of this episode that might have gone in bad taste,” tweeted MC Jessy.
