Janine Kunze and Micky Beisenherz apologize for their appearance on the much-criticized show "The Last Instance".

Author and presenter Micky Beisenherz (43) apologized in his podcast "Apocalypse und Filterkaffee" after a shitstorm for his role in the WDR show "The last instance". "If there are four potatoes sitting there and voting on racism with cards, then something is essentially wrong, you simply cannot do that." Next time he will react more vehemently to problematic statements.

Actress Janine Kunze (46) also apparently stimulated the discussion about the show. She wrote on Instagram on Sunday that she had realized that she had deeply hurt the Sinti and Roma community with her careless statements. She further writes: "It was wrong that I presumed to speak as a privileged white woman about a topic that I cannot judge in its consistency and extent!"

In the edition of the WDR talk show, Beisenherz, Kunze, Thomas Gottschalk (70) and Jürgen Milski (57) discussed with moderator Steffen Hallaschka (49) whether the word "Zigeneursauce" should be avoided or not. All four decided no. The program was broadcast on Friday evening as a repeat. After many viewers on social media were outraged about the composition of the guests and their partly unreflected statements, the broadcaster had already admitted: "With such a sensitive topic, people who bring different perspectives and / or are directly affected should have taken part in the discussion."
