VH1: Pull Leah Remini’s Gutless Hate From Your Coverage

In the interests of common decency, not to mention to preserve any hope you might have of credibility, I urge you to remove this “fake award” from your planned broadcast of this ceremony.

Dear Sir,

Did I read this right?

The Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) gave a special “Impact” award to the infamous Leah Remini?

For what? Creating the most bigoted and unwatchable program in television history?

For inciting violence and murder by presenting “fake news” about a thriving minority religion?

A&E finally had the good sense to cancel this anti-religious mess. Too bad that the Bigoted Television Journalists Association failed to get that memo. Instead, they created a category just for Remini, and slipped her an award for which she was the only contender.

How many pieces of silver did she slip them to be “awarded” this golden statue?

In the interests of common decency, not to mention to preserve any hope you might have of credibility, I urge you to revoke this “fake award.”

Sincerely,

Laurie Bartilson
La Crescenta, Calif.
