Yarkadaş has reacted against TRT for bowdlerizing Artist Erdal Erzincan.
CHP Istanbul Deputy Barış Yarkadaş said “TRT, has closed their doors to Erdal Erzincan after Sabahat Akkiraz, who made public that she voted NO. Where do you find this audacity?”
Artist Erdal Erzincan’s comment on social media has uncovered another bowdlerization. Erzincan, stated that he learned that TRT will no longer air his music clips.
CHP Istanbul Deputy Barış Yarkadaş has reacted against TRT’s attitude.
Yarkadaş who accused TRT for being censoring, said “They are trying to intimidate the art world and subjugate everyone.”
“An artist of the public, Erdal Erzincan, has also become a victim for censor after shooting a NO video before the referendum. Apparently, TRT will no longer air Erdal Erzincan’s music clips… They did exactly the same thing to Sabahat Akkiraz. They stopped airing Akkiraz’s music clips because she made public that she will vote NO. They hate ballads, art, music but especially, they hate the fact that artists are taking sides with the public. They want everyone to obey the government. They are trying to intimidate other artists through Erzincan and Akkiraz.”
“WHAT RIGHT DO YOU HAVE?”
Yarkadaş who argued that he has carried TRT’s censoring and prohibitive attitude to the GNAT, stated that he asked Binali Yıldırım, “With what authority do you prohibit the public’s ballads to be sung?”
Yarkadaş stated that TRT is standing against the public, despite the fact that it is keeping up with the public’s money, and added “No one would give a damn about your censorship… You can’t silence this public’s ballads; you would get lost in the darkness created by your own censorship and would be tossed away into history’s garbage dump.”
He also reacted against RTÜK (Radio and Television Supreme Council)
On the other hand CHP’s Yarkadaş said “There is prohibition and oppression for the ones who say NO; but there is unlimited freedom for the ones who curse at the NO-sayers.”
Yarkadaş stated that RTÜK hasn’t punished the broadcasts in which people cursed at and defamed the NO-sayers, because they perceived them as “criticism”, and added “Every institution of AKP has become like itself, they have all decayed.”
