Daytime talk show “The Real” in TROUBLE for discriminating against Muslim women


The Council on American-Islamic Relations is COMING FOR daytime TV talk show, “The Real,” for alleged discrimination against Muslim women.


The council recently filed a complaint with the Department of Fair Employment after the show’s execs asked two hijab wearing Muslim women to “move out of camera view during a show taping,” because they couldn’t be seen in the front row, “in accordance with studio policy.”


According to PageSix, Fatima Dadabhoy the senior civil rights attorney for the council’s LA chapter said, “Warner Bros. has no legal justification for removing the hijab-wearing women from the camera’s view. No studio should maintain such a discriminatory policy that prohibits people wearing religious head coverings from being seen in its studio audiences. It’s especially baffling that this particular show would want to hide their visibly-Muslim viewers, when the show purports to cater to a wide-ranging audience with its diverse cast.”


Warner Brother Televsion, the company behind the show hosted by, Tamera Mowry, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Tamar Braxton, DENIES claims they discriminate against hijab wearers and says they’re taking these accusations SERIOUSLY. 

“Warner Bros. policy is to welcome everyone and anyone into our studio audience. ‘The Real’ is a show that was created to represent and celebrate diversity. We take this inquiry seriously and are looking into the matter,” SPILLED a WB rep. 

Though NONE of the individual hosts are in any trouble… If it’s found that the Muslim women were in fact removed from the front due to their hajibs… Tamera, Tamar, and ’em could potentially be OUT of a job…

Assuming the show gets cancelled behind this incident.
