BBC The REAL HouseWives Of ISIS
BBC comedy depicting brides of terrorists in a spoof reality show-style sketch has been criticised for being "insensitive".

Revolting's Real Housewives of Isis skit, based on the popular US television model recently exported to Britain, features actors dressed as brides of Isil fighters taking selfies and showing off suicide belts. The trailer can be seen here.

One critic wrote on Facebook: "All the fun of an off-base Amy Schumer skit with the same lack of awareness of anything other than itself. It's a bit like Carry On films.
"The humor is only funny if you look down on someone else and enjoy seeing them unhappy because they are not white and Christian. "

Some have said they are disappointed with the BBC for producing the show.

Facebook user Ursula Lindo wrote: "I'm mortified that the BBC had produced such a programme. This is simply bad taste. The fact it is a comedy makes it even more worrying that humour should be associated with the actions of ISIS.

"Is this really what TV licenses are funding!?"
'The Real Housewives Of Isis' was written by Jolyon Rubinstein and Heydon Prowse as part of the new series of Revolting.

The series is produced by Hat Trick Productions, best known for Have I Got News For You and Outnumbered.

The BBC declined to comment.

Revolting is on BBC Two on Tuesdays at 10pm.
