The creator, Thomas Blachman, is one of the judges of Danish's version of the "X Factor." He also has received a number of awards from the Danish Grammys for his work in jazz music.
During the show "Blachman," Blachman and his chat show guests make comments about the women's breasts, bums and even their vaginas, according to Daily Mail (the program is in Danish).
"The entire idea of the show is to let men talk about the bodies of naked women while the woman is standing right in front of them," Blachman told the Daily Mail. "The female body thirsts for words. The words of a man. And they went for it."
Blachman has reportedly fled to New York, saying that he, a "genius," was worn down by the "ungratefulness" of his country.
Below is a clip from YouTube of the show "Blachman."

"Disgusts me that men like Blachman think it's their right to pass judgements on the female form when they've never experienced being female," Hettie tweeted.
