Warning: Children and other folks who believe in santa claus, do not read on.
For the TV 2 on Monday evening hampered the christmas of a still unknown number of families who have managed to convince their children that santa claus exists.
Smutteren occurred in 19 the News, where the host Mikael Kamber had to present a feature that some danes have begun to 'swap fathers,' so that one should not play santa claus for their own children and thus be better able to let the toddlers be in the notion that the real santa claus has been visiting.
In the presentation came Kamber, however, to reveal that santa was, in fact, is the father.
"Some of us know from painful experience that it can be difficult to convince the children that it is the real santa claus, and not just the father. So, how to keep the magic alive? Yes, you can swap the santas. And there are several that do, not at least on Facebook," said the host, before he came with a warning:
There was, in other words, changed things, and it had an unfortunate effect in the home with Majbrit Gerlau, vice-president of The main organisation. What she writes on Twitter:
'Dear TV 2 News. Feature on santa claus 'just is the father, must be announced completely in the beginning and not after you have said that the father is santa claus. Just so you can reach to change the channel, while the daughter just goes through the living room,' she writes, and adds, how are they going to get the daughter down on the ground again:
'Bet now that Tinka saves the mood.'
TV 2 News editor-in-chief, Hans Peter Jensen, annoyed by the idea that the humorous juleindslag actually may have had a negative effect.
"It is clear that if there are children, who have sat and seen 19 the News, and who have lost their childlike faith, then it was not meant to be. It is of course sad," he says to the B. T.
"It is a vexed situation, if there are viewers, there has been furious or disappointed, for it was of course meant as a story that is made with a smile over a funny. If we are so confident in its own joke have made a mistake, it is super annoying," says editor-in-chief.Updated Date: 23 December 2019, 22:00
