TV host shuts down guest who says being interviewed by a woman is beneath him

The charming scholar also told the journalist to “shut up”.

A FEMALE TV host on a Lebanese channel shut down an interview with an Islamist scholar after he told her to “shut up” and then said being interviewed by a woman is beneath him.

Rima Karaki, a journalist for the Lebanese station Al-Jadeed, was questioning Muslim scholar Hani Al Saba’i about the recent wave of Christians from Western countries travelling to the Middle East to join ISIS.

When he started elaborating on the topic a bit too much by tracing it back through history, Karaki chimed in, telling him they only had limited time and he should focus on what is happening today.

That did not go down well.

After a tense exchange between the two in which the journalist told him she “runs the show” in the studio, Al Seba’i shouted at her to “shut up” so he could talk.

She then asked how anyone is supposed to respect a sheik who tells a TV host to shut up, and he became even more furious, telling her it is beneath him to be interviewed by her.

Before he could even finish his sentence, she has his mic cut off, telling him there is either mutual respect or the conversation is over.
