BBC Two's Real Housewives Of ISIS Sketch Caused A Lot Of Controversy Online

Jade Moscrop in  entertainment

A promo film for a BBC sketch has caused huge amounts of discussion online, based around the Real Housewives Of... franchise. Titled Real Housewives Of ISIS, the video depicts four women, Afsana, Mel, Zaynab and Hadiya, who've moved to Syria to live our their lives as wives of extremists. In the clip, the skit plays on extremist behaviour, and includes the women showing off their explosive vests, being chained to the kitchen and using social media.

The sketch is a part of BBC Two's new series Revolting, and it seems not everyone is happy with the idea.

Others however, don't see a problem.

I mean on the one hand, I was pretty shocked when I first saw it, but thinking about it in more depth, could ridiculing extremist views be a way to show those who follow them that they are just that - ridiculous? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

You catch tune in to Revolting at 10pm on Tuesdays on BBC Two.
