Comedian Jandino Asporaat lashes out at Eva Jinek and presenters of other talk shows in a post on Instagram. He claimed that these programs would feed the Netherlands division. He was angry that visitors had to prove that they were vaccinated, or that they had recently been tested negative for corona.
Jinek stated in her Tuesday show that none of the angry refuse artists wanted to give explanations and text. They are afraid of reactions and framing, Jinek claims.
On Instagram, the comedian writes that “it would have been nice if they had been honest and said: ‘Jandino has thanked us several times for our show because he thinks that talk shows also contribute to the division in the Netherlands when it comes to this subject. . And: ‘He has asked us, as program makers, to be very careful with what you do and always take the other person into your heart when you make a decision’.”
The Kunstenbond, a trade union for people in the creative sector, among others, expressed a lot of criticism of refusal artists such as Jandino and Douwe Bob because they also hurt their crew, their band and the theaters by canceling their tour. Many in the sector work as zzp, and they are happy to be able to return to work after one year and a quarter of corona lockdown.
Douwe Bob’s band quit on Tuesday, as the singer hadn’t discussed their decision with them. On the broadcast of Jinek On Tuesday, comedian Wallis de Vries calls his statement narcissistic. Wallis de Vries claims that her decision creates a dichotomy. “We have been watching a dying sector for the past year and a half. It is now possible. It’s more selfish.
The criticism is Douwe Bob don’t miss it. On Facebook, he wrote that he regrets being “considered as an narcissistic Bastard”. He said he accepted the consequences of his decision, and that he supports it fully. He also stated that he will compensate his band for their decision.
Jandino did not say whether he had spoken to his crew and if he financially compensated his crew for the work that they cannot do anymore.
