A TV show which asked a rapist to demonstrate how to attack vulnerable women has sparked global outcry.
The shocking segment on channel Nouvelle Chaine Ivoirienne (NCI) led to a petition calling on its hosts to be sacked, quickly gaining 30,000 signatures.
Host Yves de M'Bella introduced the guest as a former rapist and handed him a mannequin while laughing, MailOnline reports.
M'Bella then helped the man lay it on the ground and carefully explain how he raped his victims.
After that debacle, the host even asked the sick attacker to advise women on how to avoid assaults by men like him.
Ivorian rapper Priss'K posted a furious reaction on Facebook, stating that the sight was beyond her imagination.
She wrote: "Please tell me I'm dreaming.
"It's disgusting, unacceptable, disrespectful, especially towards women.
"Rape is so degrading and dehumanising for the victim."

The petition calls on the programme to be cancelled and its host sanctioned by the network.
As the channel is private, NCI has no obligation to listen to the public outcry.
But it did apologise and suspend M'Bella.
NCI wrote in a statement that he would spend time off air for the "serious and regrettable mistake".
It added: "[We are committed] to respecting human rights and in particular those of women", adding NCI's "solidarity with women who are victims of violence and abuse of all kinds".
