After an injunction obtained by the "Welt" publisher Stefan Aust, the episode of the satirical show "ZDF Magazin Royale" from November 25, 2022 was removed from the ZDF media library.

In the show, moderator Jan Böhmermann declared the FDP to be the new RAF.

He also showed a fictitious manhunt poster, which he tweeted in advance and which showed journalists as well as FDP politicians.

An alleged photo of Aust could also be seen on it.

Stefan Aust had filed an application for an injunction with the Hamburg Regional Court.

However, it is not about the program as a whole, but about a photo on a kind of collage that will be shown in the program on November 25, a press spokesman for the Hamburg Higher Regional Court explained to SPIEGEL.

"Both in the advance notice of the program and in the program itself, a photo collage was shown in the style of a manhunt call from the 1970s - headed 'Left-wing violent criminals - Lindner/Lehfeldt gang'." Among other things, a picture is shown that is signed with "Aust, Stefan Reinhard, 1.7.1946 Stade".

"The problem with the whole thing is that the photograph doesn't show Stefan Aust, but the actor Volker Bruch, who played Stefan Aust in the film 'The Baader Meinhof Complex'." The film is based on the non-fiction book of almost the same name by the former SPIEGEL editor-in-chief Aust .

According to the district court, the viewer could not understand this otherwise than that the person depicted was Stefan Aust.

But she is not.

So this is a breach of privacy.

The district court agreed with Aust.

The distribution of the alleged Aust photos with these lines has been prohibited since Thursday.

And suddenly Jeffrey Dahmer

Jan Böhmermann reacted to the ban in various posts on his Twitter account.

He described the injunction as "cancelling" the "freedom terrorists."

Then he showed alternative drafts of the fictitious wanted poster – first with a photo by Stefan Aust and a caption for Volker Bruch.

And later with Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer in the Netflix mini-series about the serial killer.

On Friday, the classic quote from Marcel Duchamp on questions of the real, images and their relationship to one another followed: »Ceci n'est pas une pipe« – with an old photo by Stefan Aust.
