Danish TV host speaks out against misconduct in music industry

TV host Sofie Linde expressed her clear disapproval of offensive behavior in the music industry on Monday evening. In a post on Instagram, she writes that “no one is above common decency” and emphasizes the importance of distancing oneself from inappropriate behavior in all industries. Linde is reacting to DR’s new documentary ‘Sexism in the Music Industry,’ which contains several allegations of offensive behavior made by both named and unnamed women against individuals in the Danish music industry. “My general stance is that I support the idea that crossing boundaries should be a thing of the past, and therefore it is important to look back so that we can move forward,” she continues.

One of the individuals mentioned in the aftermath of the documentary is actor, entertainer, and singer Martin Brygmann. Linde herself played a central role in igniting the #MeToo debate in Denmark in 2021. She did so with a remarkable speech at the Zulu Comedy Gala, where she shared her own experience with offensive behavior in the media industry. Brygmann’s eldest daughter, Frida Brygmann, helped write that speech, but she has chosen not to comment on the allegations against her father. Martin Brygmann is not named in the actual documentary, but he has publicly commented on it before and after its release. Initially, he attempted to legally prevent DR from releasing the documentary, but without success.

Following the release, Brygmann wrote on Facebook that he “has been blind to” the fact that his “often crude and flirtatious humor” could be seen as “different and offensive.” He also pointed out factual errors and manipulation in the documentary to DR and the production company ImpactTV. Brygmann announced on Facebook that he is canceling all his events in the coming months as a result of the documentary’s release. B.T. has tried to get a comment from Brygmann about the matter, but he has stated that he does not wish to speak to the press.
