In fairness to the show itself, it receives a fair bit of praise for how it handles some issues. This an RTÉ spokesperson’s comment on the tweetastrophe:

“An organisation has sprung up claiming to be able to cure people of being gay. The show sent an undercover journalist to them in an attempt to see if it could be done, and it couldn’t. The tweet was meant to drum up publicity for the show, but was taken the wrong way.”
