Morocco Broadcaster Apologises After Advising Women To Hide Bruises

A Moroccan TV channel has apologised after broadcasting a show advising women how to hide signs of domestic violence using makeup.

Channel 2M, which featured the clip last week, has admitted that the footage was "completely inappropriate".

In the broadcast, a woman is seen resting in a chair while makeup is applied to conceal fake bruises around her eyes. The video was later removed from the channel's website.

In the clip, featured on the show Sabahiyat, the host of the show offers tips on how to make the appearance of bruising "disappear" using foundation and toners.


"We hope these beauty tips will help you carry on with your daily life," the host suggests after demonstrating how to mask the signs of violence.

The controversial video was shared on Twitter and Facebook, receiving widespread condemnation.
