Below is an email I have sent to "Revision 3" which is an online content

They have a "hidden video" of a "blind" lady pouring water all over the
place in public setting, and we watch as fellow diners try to help her out.

I find this content not entertaining and derogatory to blind folks.
Revision 3 is now owned by the Discovery Channel.

Please take a moment and review the video here and provide your comment to
info at revision3.com

Thank You

Dear Revision 3.

My name is Matthew Sievert.

I am legally blind, I am a cook, and I work as a computer programmer.

I have been watching Revision 3/REV3 for a very long time.

I find your "hidden camera" video with the "blind" women very offensive in
this day and age.

Blind people are very capable, and even if this is an "old" video your
continued display of it will propagate a stereotype that needs to be

I am very disappointed in your organization.

Here is a link to the video.

Thank you for your time, and have a good day.

Matthew Sievert
