Daytime show “The Real” has been slammed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations for alleged discrimination against Muslim women.
According to the New York Post, the council’s LA office filed a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, alleging the show in February asked two women wearing hijab head scarves to “move out of camera view during a show taping.”
The council claims the women were told they couldn’t be seen in a front row, “in accordance with studio policy.”
A Warner Bros. TV rep said its “policy is to welcome everyone . . . into our studio audience. ‘The Real’ . . . was created to represent and celebrate diversity. We take this inquiry seriously and are looking into the matter.”
