CNN host insults SA in travel show
Anthony Bourdain appears to brim with disdain for parts of SA heritage.
CAPE TOWN - Audiences will see controversial television host and chef Anthony Bourdain refer to South African soldiers killed fighting for the country at the famous statue of Paul Kruger on Church Square in Pretoria as 'ugly Dutch guys' and 'assholes'.
According to South African entertainment website Channel24, while standing at Paul Kruger's statue in Pretoria, surrounded by anonymous soldiers who fought British imperialism and colonial oppression in South Africa, Bourdain asks, "Who are those ugly white men?" and, "Who are those assholes anyway?"
Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown will air on Friday on CNN International at 17:00.
According to the website, Bourdain appears to brim with disdain for parts of South African heritage from the outset of his travel show.
In the show, he visits a portion of the country, makes mistakes like referring to putu pap as "futu" as he comes to shoot Eland, takes a taxi ride to Soweto and shows how people in Hillbrow live now.
He also makes a few jabs at Cape Town-based restaurants.
