MKR’s Karen says Josh wasn’t pushed into saying ‘slut’

 

‘There was no way he was pushed into saying “Thanks slut”‘: MKR’s Karen refutes Josh’s claims he was ‘blackmailed’ into making the offensive slur during dinner party

My Kitchen Rules ‘villain’ Josh Meeuwissen claimed earlier this week that he has been ‘pressured’ into saying things on camera.

And following his offensive ‘slut’ comment towards competing chef Amy Murr, fellow contestant Karen has shut down the ‘Seafood King’s’ claims he was ‘blackmailed’ to say things by the show’s producers.

‘There was no way he was pushed into saying “Thanks slut” when you have two people sitting next to you. No way have Channel Seven said that to him,’ the midwife told The Sydney Morning Herald.

‘He’s an adult and he makes those decisions and it was his choice to say that,’ the reality star added.

Karen’s comments come after Josh told The Kyle & Jackie ‘O’ Show on Wednesday that he was ‘threatened’ into saying certain things for the sake of the show.

‘Several teams were definitely heavily pressured into answering questions by producers,’ the Broome-based deckhand said.

‘They threatened teams that they would not be allowed to leave the interview room until they said a particular scene that producers wanted.’When quizzed on the nature of the alleged blackmail, Josh described an incident where a producer desperately wanted him to discuss something he wasn’t comfortable talking about.

He claimed that the producer followed him and his wife Amy back to their hotel room, hounding them the entire way.

‘If I didn’t do certain things they were going to portray it differently. And they were telling me how they were going to edit it unless I play ball,’ he claimed.

He also broke his silence on the controversial moment that aired on Wednesday night’s episode, in which Josh calls rival chef Amy a ‘slut’.

Josh claimed that he was shocked to hear that executives were going to show his comment, given the fact that he had apologised to Amy off-camera.
