Kuwait ‘blackface’ comedy show causes outcry

A Kuwaiti TV show, Block Ghashmarah, has used "blacked-up" actors and stereotypes to portray Sudanese people.

The depictions of people from the African country have led to accusations of racism, although others have jumped to defend the programme.

Actor Hasan al-Ballam has since apologised on his Instagram account for any offence caused.

Produced by Abdirahim Saeed and Alexi Peristianis
