Jonah from Tonga Axed in NZ

Posted on: Mon 3 Jul 2017

From We Can Be Heroes to Ja’mie: Private School Girl, Chris Lilley’s irreverent brand of humour has been met with both acclaim and controversy across the world.

The Summer Heights High spin-off, Jonah from Tonga has been the source of the latter in New Zealand – after public broadcaster, Maori Television chose to air this contentious program.

Kiwi Correspondent, Pearl Little from 95bFM spoke with Jennie about the public’s reaction to this show and more.
