Hungary’s media watchdog, the National Media and Infocommunications Authority have announced they will be taking legal action against the RTL Hungary media group. The legal action comes after the RTL aired an advert from the Háttér Society group. In the emotional commercial, LGBTQ+ couples were shown reacting to homophobic comments that they encountered online. The managing director for the Háttér Society, Tamás Dombos opened up about the situation to RTL, stating: “The purpose of the Media Authority is to silence LGBTQ organisations so that there can be no meaningful social debate on the issue.” He continued: “We think this campaign video was an important part of social dialogue. It does not contain items that would cause any disadvantage or harm to minors.”
