Ban the Jeremy Kyle Show from UK television

This petition had 98 supporters

The Jeremy Kyle Show has aired for 12 years and is yet to cease misrepresenting and villifying the underclass of Britain, in the form of a 'cheap laughs' entertainment show set on the shakey foundations of an unreliable lie detector test, and a grossly unqualified mediator. The show promotes pidgeonholing, elitism, and bullying the mentally challenged, the disabled, and the vulnerable adults of the UK. The show is a completely sadistic invasion of peoples' privacy.

It is clearly the intent of the producer to aggravate domestic issues in order to increase entertainment value, which has had a disastrous impact on the lives of many (just Google Gemma Swift, David Stainforth, or Larry Mahoney). It is absolutely contrary to the supposition that the show helps people in any way, and you shouldn't believe so. Please help me get rid of this backward, disgusting, archaic and regressive show.
