Children's show falls foul of toy monkey called Ahmadinejad
The Guardian

It came when the unsuspecting presenter, Dariush Farziayi, asked the name of the toy animal his young caller had been given as a reward for good behaviour. "Well, my father calls him Ahmadinejad," the child replied. Now the father's discomfort has spread to the programme-makers after the state broadcaster, IRIB, responded by withdrawing it from viewing schedules. The final episode will be screened next week after a successful seven-year run.

I laughed so much by imagining the head of the presenter and all the TV stuff when the boy said the sentence.
