(Note: The Comedy Prize Honorary Prize is awarded without prior nomination by the organizer of the award ceremony, the Cologne Comedy Festival GmbH. This is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the production company of Raab's television programs, Brainpool, in which Raab has a stake.)
Raab is considered controversial in the public perception. For example, he was accused of having his humor at the expense of weaker people or those with no media experience. Raab also makes use of existing prejudices against socially marginalized groups, even reinforcing them through his disparaging manner. "What Raab is doing here is entertainment based on the motto: the lower the drawer, the higher the quota," said the former deputy CDU / CSU parliamentary group chairman Wolfgang Bosbach , for example .
Raab was also accused of repeatedly attacking the personal rights of others, while strictly shielding his own family from the public. Raab argued on the other hand that his satirical representations referred to people who voluntarily revealed their personality and private life to the public and thus made themselves the legitimate object of satire. In 1999, Raab used a statement by Regina Zindler, which she made in the show Richter Barbara Salesch , for his song Maschen-Draht-Zaun . Through the song and through her own efforts, Zindler received a temporary media presence, which eventually prompted her to change her place of residence. She received 10 pfennigs for each single sold, a total of 1 million singles were sold.
In 2002, Raab showed a quote by the author Erika Riemann that was taken out of context and felt that it was vilified. Raab caused a stir in 2005 when he said in a report on his television program TV total that Saxony was so popular that a thousand English people came to visit at once. This was an allusion to the air raids on Dresden , in which between 22,700 and 25,000 people were violently killed in 1945. Raab apologized for the statement in a written statement after Saxony's then Prime Minister Georg Milbradt complained to the TV station ProSieben with the words "no Dresden, no Saxon and no German has understanding for this bottomless bad taste".
After the TV broadcaster RTL banned Max Buskohl , a candidate from Deutschland sucht den Superstar , from appearing in Raab's television program in 2007 , Raab presented him with the comment "RTL prisoner for 196 days". He played on the Schleyer kidnapping by the Red Army Faction (RAF) in 1977. At the time, the kidnappers published a photo of Hanns Martin Schleyer with the words “For 20 days prisoner of the RAF”. After this incident, the Bild newspaper accused Raab of mocking the victims of the RAF and thus cemented Raab's reputation as a provocateur: "Raab is the bad thing on German television." Raab has not given the tabloid Bild since 2004 and for several years also the TV station RTL no interviews more.
In 2015, the artist Serdar Somuncu pointed out in his book Der Adolf in mir: The career of a forbidden idea as well as in a controversial conversation with Mely Kiyak at the Körber Foundation on November 5 of the same year that his art had been censored on German television entertainment programs where the broadcasts of Stefan Raab would have been the only exception.
In the course of his career, numerous lawsuits were brought against Raab, some of which became known to the public. In 2001 Raab made fun of the name of the then 16-year-old student Lisa Loch in his television program TV and predicted her good chances in the porn business, among other things. Thereupon the student sued Raab and stated that as a result of these "rough jokes" she received obscene anonymous calls at night and was exposed to the ridicule of her classmates and the insults of passers-by. The Hamm Higher Regional Court finally sentenced Raab to 70,000 euros in damages for a serious violation of personal rights .
In September 2004, Raab showed an excerpt from the hr -Nachrichten Hessen-Aktuell in his television program , in which a then 28-year-old mother from Frankfurt could be seen holding the school cone of her daughter, who was just starting school. He commented on the scene with the words: “Incredible, isn't it? The dealers camouflage themselves better and better ”, whereupon he was sued by his mother. After the plaintiff had initially lost several court and appeal proceedings, she accepted a settlement offer from the court in the amount of 20,000 euros together with a letter of apology in parallel proceedings - aimed at a violation of the right to one's own image - and in return withdrew this lawsuit.
In June 2008, Raab and the production company Brainpool were sentenced by the Federal Court of Justice to pay a license fee of 1,278.23 euros per minute or part thereof to ARD . The reason for this was the broadcast of a 20-second excerpt from Hessischer Rundfunk in its television program TV total . In July 2008, the NDR sued the production company Brainpool for 568,000 euros because Raab's program TV showed a total of 309 clips from NDR productions.
Raab won a lawsuit against musician and producer Moses Pelham . Raab had titled Pelham in 1997 in a program with "Möschen", among other things made fun of interviews and video clips and asked viewers to send tinkered Moses P "heads" into the program. Behind the scenes at the 1997 Echo Awards, Pelham gave Raab a headbutt in the face and broke his nose . Raab was awarded a compensation of 10,000 DM .
