Iraq bans terror prank shows following outcry over TV program that staged ISIS kidnappings of celebrities and forced them to wear ‘suicide vests’

A TV show which sparked outrage in Iraq after featuring fake ISIS fighters who 'kidnap' celebrities, strap fake suicide vests to them, and tell them they will be executed has been banned. 

Regulators said the program, and a second show, Tony's Bullet, breached broadcast rules after viewers complained the Ramadan prank show was in bad taste, particularly as militant violence is still prevalent in Iraq.
