Reporter Made To Eat Human Brain While Wearing A Crown Made From Teeth By Cannibal Tribe

Reza Aslan's portrayal of a group of Hindus who practice cannibalism in India, including his consumption of human brains, on his show "Believer," has been met with criticism.

If you are easily nauseated or have recently consumed a delicious, juicy cut of meat, avert your gaze from this point. We cannot be held responsible for any discomfort experienced after ignoring this warning.

The recent release of the true-crime thriller Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story on Netflix has brought cannibalism into the spotlight as a trending topic.

In 2017, CNN's "Believers" series featured real-life consumption of human flesh.

While visiting a Hindu sect that engaged in cannibalism, the host of the show, Reza Aslan, was reportedly offered a piece of human brain.

Aslan not only consumed the meat but also adorned himself with human cremated remains on his face and a necklace made of human body parts.

During the encounter, one of the Aghori nomads seated with Aslan even threatened to "cut off his head if he keeps talking so much" at one point.

The Aghori ascetic's sudden act of throwing his own waste at Aslan and the rest of the CNN crew led to an abrupt stop in filming and their departure.

Prior to the airing of the episode, Aslan shared the following on Facebook:

"Want to know what a dead guy's brain tastes like? Charcoal. It was burnt to a crisp!"

At the time, Aslan's show faced criticism for sensationalizing Hinduism, which is the third-largest religion in the world.

In a post for the Huffington Post, Vamsee Juluri, a professor of media studies at the University of San Francisco, made the following statement:

"It is unbelievably callous and reckless of CNN to be pushing sensational and grotesque images of bearded brown men and their morbid and deathly religion at a time when the United States is living through a period of unprecedented concern and fear."

The following statement was made by the US-India Political Action Committee: "With multiple reports of hate-fuelled attacks against people of Indian origin from across the US, the show characterizes Hinduism as cannibalistic, which is a bizarre way of looking at the third largest religion in the world."

In a statement, the organization said: "In a charged environment, a show like this can create a perception about Indian Americans which could make them more vulnerable to further attacks."

Tulsi Gabbard, the first Hindu elected to the US Congress, tweeted the following: "CNN is using its power and influence to increase people's misunderstanding and fear of Hinduism."
