SBS apologizes and releases official statement for 'Law of the Jungle' endangered clam controversy

AKP STAFF

SBS has released an official statement and apology for the recent endangered clam controversy on 'Law of the Jungle'.

'Law of the Jungle' producers officially apologized for allowing the 'Lost Island' cast members to hunt and eat endangered clam in Thailand, and SBS made the following statement:

"SBS held a personnel committee meeting on July 18 regarding the 'Law of the Jungle in Lost Island' production team's hunting of giant clams in Thailand. The decision was made to issue a warning, probation, and salary reduction to the entertainment department head, chief producer, and producer, respectively. The producer has also been removed from the 'Law of the Jungle' production team'... SBS once again expresses sincere apologies for not having sufficient knowledge of the local regulations in regards to the filming and hunting of giant clams in the 'Law of the Jungle in Lost Island' episodes in Thailand."



SBS has also canceled all the VOD streaming for the 'Lost Island' episodes of 'Law of the Jungle'.

But it just bothers me this "we apologize because we didnt know" ... YOU DID KNOW.

The thai officials released the copy of the agreement sent to you which clearly prohibits hunting and you read it and agreed to it, so hiding behind ignorance is really bullshit excuse and makes the "apology" seem so insincere.
