If one would recap, George Lutterodt, popularly known as Counelor Lutterodt made an ‘insensitive’ statement concerning rape victims, saying “Every rape victim enjoys the act” on Adom TV, a week ago.
This statement by Lutterodt caused anger and disturbed many Ghanaians including some public figures in Ghana who stood up against his statement and asked that he is not allowed to speak in any media house.
Reacting to these comments, the Gender Ministry asked that the counselor apologizes and retract his statement on the issue and refused to apologize because he felt they misunderstood his statement.
On the 11th of July,2020 when George Lutterodt was granted an interview on peace fm, he used the opportunity to apologize to his ‘discerning’ viewers and any other person who did not ‘really’ understand him.
“ Let me take the first step to apologize to my discerning viewers, to any other person who has not really understood what is going on”.
He continued to apologize with the condition that, the circulated video of him saying “Every rape victim enjoys the act” was someone’s one minute video out of the rape discussion he was having.
However, some Ghanaians described his apology as an apology with condition and described it as something that is not an apology at all.
