TNT stars apologize again to residents of Ingushetia

Top performers of the TNT TV Channel have recorded a video, in which they apologize to Ingush people for the fourth time for their sketch in the Comedy Woman programme.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on December 10, the Comedy Club Production Company and its actress Ekaterina Skulkina apologized for their sketch. Judging from the actresses' dialogue, a Jewish girl swore in the Ingush language, but users of social networks thought that it was a prostitute from Ingushetia.

Angry users of social networks threatened to "catch one by one" the abusers and force them "to beg forgiveness kneeling."

The video entitled "The TNT has officially apologized to Ingushes" was posted by the Comedy Club Production on the YouTube.

The TNT presenters have stated that they "had never called for violence or hostility" and "always propagated peoples' love and friendship." They have added that they apologize to the "great Ingush nation."
