Turkish TV presenter 'sacked' for wearing a low cut top on air
Gozde Kansu was allegedly dismissed after a government spokesperson criticised her outfit and called it "unacceptable"
A Turkish television presenter has been sacked for wearing a low-cut top on air, according to reports.
A spokesperson for the socially conservative ruling Justice and Development (AKP) party allegedly criticised TV presenter Gozde Kansu, describing the outfit in question as "unacceptable", France24 have reported.
Ms Kansu's attire came under fire by the party as she hosted the "Veliaht" TV programme. AKP spokesperson Hüseyin Çelik said her outfit was "extreme" and added that: "We [AKP] don't intervene against anyone, but this is too much. It is unacceptable." He did not name Ms Kansu as the person he was discussing.
According to France24, producers for the show initially said Ms Kansu may not be involved in future broadcasts due to her busy schedule, but later confirmed her dismissal.
Çelik later went on Twitter to assert he had never "named a show or a person" and said: "It was the media who alleged the names.“
