Serbia bans PM’s campaign video over homophobia

Serbian authorities on Friday banned a video produced by the presidential campaign of Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic for featuring a homophobic slur.


A crowd can be heard chanting “Vucicu, pederu” (“Vucic, faggot”) in the clip, which was intended to highlight insults directed at the premier from his rivals ahead of the first round of the presidential election next month.

But the video sparked anger from gay rights groups and Serbia’s electronic media watchdog said it was in breach of regulations.
