Recently, video and photos from the TV drama "Sapai Rai Sakdina" were published via social media. In a scene, a man is shown touching a woman’s breasts with his two hands. Social media users were quick to slam the scene as unsuitable for public broadcast.
Channel 8 apologised for the scene, but added that it was only intended as entertainment and it did not involve sexual harassment as interpreted by some netizens.
Channel 8 said that it was ready to review and edit other TV shows which had not been broadcast to prevent repetition of the mistake.
