Fox Latin America Facebook Poll Asks Viewers If Jews Killed Jesus Christ

| by Michael Allen

Fox Latin America was trying to promote a National Geographic Christmas special on Facebook, when a staffer set up a poll for users entitled 'Who Do You Think Is Responsible For The Death of Christ?'

The choices given were: Pontius Pilate, Jewish People or the High Priests (also Jews).

 The Simon Weisenthal Center in Buenos Aires was outraged, calling the question a “defamatory reference.”

The Associated Press reports that Fox Latin America spokesperson Guadalupe Lucero apologized on behalf of National Geographic, saying the poll was removed immediately and measures have been taken to prevent such incidents in the future.
