Gözde Kansu’s outfit was described as ‘unacceptable’ by spokesman Hüseyin Çelik because it revealed her cleavage.

He launched the attack on Miss Kansu’s performance during the Veliaht TV show without naming her but branded her choice of clothing “extreme.”

He said: “We don’t intervene against anyone, but this is too much. It is unacceptable.”


Following Çelik’s remarks, it was revealed that the host in question was Gözde Kansu, and rumours spread that she had been fired.

Mr Çelik said it was his fundamental right to express his opinion as an individual, TV viewer and politician.

Writing on his Twitter account he said: “I never named a show or a person. ‘It was the media who alleged the names.”

The company that produces the Turkish show released a statement on Oct. 9, denying that Kansu was fired due to her low-cut dress.

According to the statement, the company said it no longer wanted to work with Kansu after the first episode because her presentation and style were not in line with the show’s aims, reported France 24.

The Justice and Development Party, often abbreviated to AKP was founded in 2001 and is a centre-right socially conservative party and the largest in Turkish government.

Although its background is traditionally influenced by Islam, the party has officially removed itself from religious ideology in favour of what is known as ‘conservative democracy.’ Its image in Turkey is that of a pro-western, pro-American party and advocates Turkish membershi of the EU.
