ZAGREB - A Croatian cameraman was fired Friday after Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor took offence to a message on a T-shirt the cameraman was wearing at the government press conference.
RTL television cameraman Thursday afternoon wore a T-shirt with the words: “I do not need sex, the government f***s me every day”.
Kosor said the sign was insulting, while the cameraman defended himself by saying that it was the only clean shirt he had.
RTL television on Friday fired the cameraman, saying he had behaved unprofessionally and damaged RTL’s reputation.
The Croatian Journalists Association immediately protested and asked the cameraman to be reinstated.
