Last Tuesday night, Johan Dirksen admitted on SBS6’s ‘Vandaag Inside’ that he assaulted a woman with a candle fifty years ago. His comments immediately sparked intense public debate in the Netherlands (and abroad) and Dirksen said on Thursday that he stopped the talk show immediately. “The culture of canceling and waking up is big and against us,” he said. It’s a strong movement that is getting worse. The only independent program has now collapsed. I can no longer enjoy sitting here. I’m finished.”
When the other two guests, Rene van der Geep and Wilfried Jenny, announced that they did not want to continue, the program was immediately cancelled. Resolution ensures that SBS6 channel in one day I lost a million viewers†
But now “sources about the show” have told Het Allgemin Dagblad that a return to the screen is possible after all. In what form that will happen, and when, is still being considered, it is said. But it is clear that there is hard work “behind the scenes” to get all the heroes back. So also from Dirksen.
