An Iraqi prank TV show that strapped suicide vests on celebrities and even featured their fake ISIS kidnappings has been pulled off air after massive outrage. The show is considered to be in poor taste, as Iraqis still face militant violence. Many celebrities like footballer Alaa Mhawi and actress Nessma were reportedly blindfolded and "pranked." The participants were even told they would be executed.
