A man who posted a video online of himself encouraging his young daughter to beat a pillow with a baseball bat as if it were a “gypsy” or a Muslim has received a suspended one-year sentence, Lidovky.cz reported. The man, who is 27, will also be monitored by probation and mediation services after being found guilty of promoting race hate and endangering the upbringing of a child, the news site said. The case was heard at a court in Benešov last month.
Numerous reports were made to social services after the video went viral on the Czech internet in the summer.
