For the producers and management of 7 stars TV, we have a question:
Is this what you call
We were appalled to receive a message from one of our members about a TV show aired by your station, where a live animal has been cruelly killed on 'candid camera'.
We cannot understand how this was meant to be funny or entertaining?
Here are some of the comments from people who did not find it funny, either. In fact, they were outraged and disgusted at your show. Please see what people are saying about it:

"don't you have a heart ?????!!!! killing an animal just for comedy and fun ???????? how could you do that ?? it's horrible ... it made me sick. being cruel to an animal is NOT funny !! there's nothing funny about this video"
"Am just appalled at your video. I simply can't believe that someone would do this, and find it funny. What sort of twisted, sick mind does this? And, is it one we want in a society? NO."
2Watching an animal scream in fright and die a slow and cruel death while its blood pours on the ground on tv....is this funny?!?! This is sick, shameful and cruel. You should ashamed to carry out such an act...animals killed for entertainment?!?! This is Haram, against Islam and all humanity...SHAME on you all."
"killing an animal for comedy, is something you should be ashamed of.
i'm posting here because if someone saw your video and found this page, i want them to know that i live in Jordan , and i fight for animals rights and i'm against abuse this is not our culture nor our religion."
"Your recent video uploaded to Youtube is sick. You should be ashamed for promoting such cruelty."
"I cannot believe that your station thinks animal cruelty is funny. in any other country you would be prosecuted for this crime against the animals. I understand the tradition of sacrificing animals for religious or traditional causes, but using this rite for entertainment is totally unacceptable. Haram."
"animal abuse is no comedy, it is sick and it takes a very sick and disturbed mind to come up with this unacceptable act toward innocent animals! Shame on u!"
"You can be proud of yourself that you are stronger than a weak, innocent animal ... Shame on you!! I hope one day all of you will get it back and people will laugh at you, you will be in same situation with pain and sadness ... Just stop Animal Abuse ... Its enough!!!"
"The international world is totally appalled at Jordan's view of comedy; animal abuse is not comedy. The holy Koran stipulates that animals should be slaughtered with MERCY. This is disgusting."
These comments say it all... we have nothing further to add. Oh, just one more thing. We don't think this sort of reaction is going to do much for your rating points.
Appalled as much as we are?
