Hello! Hitler!



The slip was made in a segment of the program “Yorosen,” in which young “idol” group members act as school teachers and lecture about history. The program was aired early Friday. Referring to the Nazi dictator as “Hitler ojisan” (Uncle Hitler), the woman lauded Hitler’s speeches as having a “soothing effect.” “The program’s content was based on a mistaken interpretation of history and was inappropriate,” the broadcaster said.
