GLAAD, National Hispanic Coalition File FCC Complaint Over Homophobic Spanish Language Show 'José Luis Sin Censura'


GLAAD and the National Hispanic Coalition today announced they have filed a joint complaint against José Luis Sin Censura, a Spanish language talk show, for more than 20 episodes in which anti-gay slurs and hypersexualized images of women were used to sensationalize the programming. The organizations also launched an online action with the Women's Media Center (WMC) where concerned community members and allies can send e-mails to the FCC supporting the complaint or file their own complaints.

GLAAD writes:

In over twenty episodes that aired between June 18 and December 7, 2010, the program contained images and language of the nature that is never displayed or is bleeped out of pre-taped English-language programs of the same nature, including the words "pinche" ("f*cking" in English) and "culero" ("assf*cker"), anti-gay language, including epithets such as ""maricón," "joto" and "puñal" (or "f*ggot"), and anti-Latino slurs, such as "mojado" ("wetback"). The program frequently featured blatant nudity and female guests have been shown in violent fights. Hypersexualized images of women's breasts and genitals while stripping for male guests and audience members also make up routine offerings. Guests and audience members were often incited to engage in verbal and even physical attacks, especially against people perceived to be LGBT. Many episodes showed the audience standing and shouting anti-gay epithets and profanity at guests.

  3. He appeals to an ignorant, uneducated and socially challenged segment of the Hispanic community. These are the people who back in our birth countries would not reach employment positions higher than tending to the homes of their social and intellectual superiors.

    Simply disgusting!

  5. Look at the people sitting in that you REALLY think they're education is past the 2nd grade?

    In life, it may not be PC to say...but those who are low lives are usually those who are uneducated and NO you don't need a college degree to be educated, you can attain education just from learning and exposing yourself to various people. This program and it's audience are filth. Glad GLAAD comes to bat for us and promotes r-e-s-p-e-c-t!

  6. One glance at that pic and it's obvious that's the Hispanic version of trailer trash right there. I agree with the poster who wrote this is the Latin Jerry Springer.

  8. I applaud GLAAD for really driving the point of decency and tolerance home for all. If we don't challenge and debate those who put on blast their very public bigotry, than we can't except fairness and equality in neither our kids schoolyards or our court rooms. It starts with people respect who you are and that includes standing up for who you are. That being said, this show really does look like a ghetto mess. What is the budget? Low budget for a low life show.

  10. I watch Jose Luis Sin Censura and I've complained to the show in Spanish and English about the content that is shown regularly. I applaud GLAAD for picking up on this. I listen to Spanish talk radio a lot and the stuff that goes out on the airwaves would never be permitted on English-language stations. Part of it is cultural. Part of it is that the FCC isn't listening with a Spanish ear. I've heard worse on the radio but Jose Luis Sin Censura is a pretty disgusting program and says a lot about how far behind Latino culture is when it comes to respecting gays and women.

  11. And the worst part is that is all made up. It’s phony. They are paid –not being actors- to play those roles for a few dollars, almost without scrip, just general directions. They have to be convincing though to receive their paid. People believe it’s all true as much as other morons think the wrestling shows are true too.
    I hope they give them what they deserve.
