Gogglebox viewers criticize the show as the announcer provides a Jaws “trigger warning.”
Viewers of the Channel 4 show CELEBRITY GOGGLEBOX have slammed the show for issuing an unwarranted warning.
Tonight’s episode of Celebrity Gogglebox aired on Channel 4, with some of the stars watching Jaws. However, after a warning was shown before the famous horror picture, audiences were perplexed.
On tonight’s episode of the show, Lorraine Kelly, Gyles Brandreth, and Denise Van Outen all watched Jaws.
Some spectators, though, were not disturbed by the celebs’ passionate reactions.
Several viewers of the show resorted to social media to express their displeasure with Channel 4’s decision to broadcast a warning.
The broadcaster warned viewers of the shark attack before the portion on Jaws aired.
Viewers flocked to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the situation.
“Watching Gogglebox,” one wrote. The previous ad break ended with a warning that the following video contains shark attack footage.
“They’re watching Jaws!” exclaims the narrator. It’s almost 10 p.m. #clowncountry.” (sic)
“At least it wasn’t Naked Attraction on there again,” a second added.
“For one episode, Clarkson’s farm includes a warning concerning “sexual content”… sheep”
A third said, “Slightly taken aback when the Gogglebox announcer provided a warning that there is footage of shark attacks when they’re viewing Jaws.”
“Doesn’t Channel 4 realize it’s not real?”
“#isitok @Channel4 warned us about a fictitious shark attack on #gogglebox,” wrote another.
“But not about examining a dog’s c***, which is covered in hedgehog spines.”
“Gogglebox just did a trigger warning for a shark attack, who’s that going to trigger when you live in the UK?” said a fifth viewer.
“On skeggy beach, you ain’t going to see a great white.”
“And the adult population’s dumbing down continued tonight as @C4Gogglebox alerted us that tonight’s episode contains scenes of a shark attack before showing us a little of Jaws,” another wrote. Jesus f***** Christ, f***** Christ, f***** Christ, f***** #CelebrityGogglebox #Jaws #gogglebox
Following their viewing of the film, several of the show’s celebs became trembling.
Gyles admitted that he had never seen the Steven Spielberg classic before.
“I’ve never seen anything like this, this is going to be Jaws,” he added.
“I’ve never watched Jaws,” says the narrator. I understand it’s about a whale.”
“It’s not about a whale, it’s about a shark,” irritated co-star Maureen Lipman said.
Maureen later revealed that the film had a big impact on her when she was younger.
“The sea was never the same after that,” she claimed. I would never, ever push myself beyond my limits.”
