24 Producers Cave To Political Correctness

"Tell me where the apology is!"

24 is buckling a bit to address concerns over how Muslims are depicted in the Keifer Sutherland-led thriller. A current plotline features a Muslim-American family perpetrating a terrorist plot from a sleeper cell.

The show is providing a PSA to affiliates which depicts the American Muslim community in a positive light, and producers have also gone back and removed a few references that they felt were 'stereotypical.'

The upcoming scene where Jack Bauer dons a turban and poses as a gas station attendant, however, may still be on the table.

1 other geekspeak:

  • The Slammer:

    Get off 24's back world. People fly planes into buildings, kill 3,000 people and maim even more.....and are praised as heros......and they worry about sterotypes?

    Dear sandfolk.....you weren't nuked on September 12th, it's all gravy after that babe. Deal.
