Outcry over 'nude' dancers on Japan TV
Tuesday 02 January 2007
A Japanese television station has been forced to apologise to viewers after a troupe of "naked" dancers appeared in its family New Year's Eve show.
The dancers, who appeared to be topless and dressed in nothing but skimpy knickers, filled the stage during a performance by the singer DJ Ozma, prompting hundreds of viewers to phone in and complain.
"The dancers were wearing body suits, but we are sorry for any misunderstanding," a presenter announced.
"I guess it looked a bit too real," DJ Ozma said after the show, which regularly tops viewer ratings on New Year's Eve.
