BBC's Housewives Of ISIS Causing Online Storm
Reactions in Manchester are insane...
The new BBC 2 comedy show 'Real Housewives Of Isis' - which depicts brides of terrorists in a brave spoof reality-style - has, unsurprisingly, generated a storm of controversy and mass debate online.
The show features actresses dressed as Islamic State brides using social media to show off bomber jackets and chains 'gifted' to them by their husbands. It pokes fun at European women who join ISIS and parodies the comedy show Revolting, which has generated over 20 million views on YouTube since it was posted online.
And while the show has some keen supporters...

As if people's TV license in this country is going towards funding the production of a programme called "the real housewives of ISIS". Wow— Cameron Edgar (@CammyyyEdgar) January 4, 2017
