Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf express themselves with serious expressions in the video on their own behalf, which they distribute via their social media channels on late Wednesday afternoon. In it, the moderators announce that they refrain from recording their on the show "Joko & Klaas against ProSieben" 15 minutes of airtime on ProSieben.
They would have prepared a lot, said Winterscheidt, but would not use it. Heufer-Umlauf added that the news from Halle / Saale had deprived them of the feeling of "performing big staged nonsense".

There will be many more opportunities to put the ideas into action, the entertainers said, "Somehow, it's not the right day for it."
A few weeks ago, Joko and Klaas had used the quarter of an hour for a political gain: they had people talk about sea rescue for refugees in the Mediterranean, about right-wing extremism and homelessness. Another time the ProSieben entertainers gave away 40,000 euros to television viewers during this time.
