    People Are Angry With Sky News For Filming FGM

    There is a campaign on social media to stop the broadcast of a mutilation that was filmed as part of a documentary.

    Sky News have filmed a documentary about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) which will allegedly show the procedure taking place.

    Hibo Wardere, FGM campaigner and survivor, has called for a boycott of Sky News to support her campaign against the broadcast

    Some people are asking why it is acceptable to show a film with child abuse

    Hi @SkyNews can you explain why you think it is acceptable to broadcast film of a girl child being subjected to #FGM. This is child abuse

    This girl deserves dignity & @SkyNews makes her abuse something to be watched & consumed. It's disgusting & Sky should be reported #FGM
