One of the main female characters in the serial touched her husband in a recent episode while saying, “We will have dessert after dinner,” which disturbed the Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK), which moved to fine the station hosting the series 115,000 Turkish Liras, (around US$60,000), according to online news portal GazetePort.
