What a strong sign! Recently Oliver Pocher (42) has been seen regularly in a new late night show on TV. “Pocher – dangerously honest!” is the name of the show, in which humor is of course never neglected. However, today’s episode starts very differently – and extremely seriously. Instead of a cheerful greeting there is silence on the set: Oli and his wife Amira (27) are just standing in silence in a black studio – for their sympathy in the case George Floyd To give expression!
And not with a single minute’s silence – exactly 8 minutes and 46 seconds, nothing happens on the TV station RTL. As long as he pleaded George Floyd on May 25 for help while a policeman knelt on his neck until the African American passed out and died. A clear sign against racism from the comedian and his partner. In addition, the two T-shirts with the inscription “do not care!” During the quiet minutes, viewers were given the opportunity to send their names to Oli’s Instagram account, which were then shown on the live show – a sign of additional sympathy.
After the silence had ended, Oli himself found very personal words – and explained his action: “My children live in America, too. You wonder how it will go on.” Stopping on a big station for so long is a clear statement.
