Jian Ghomeshi, the former CBC Radio broadcaster slipped back into the public spotlight with an announcement about his new music and podcast series, but this creative adventure is already facing problems.

A day after the ex-CBC personality revealed The Ideation Project, a new podcast which tackles world citizenship and the loss of homelands, his quiet comeback attempt received an onslaught of backlash on social media.

This reaction comes a year after Ghomeshi was acquitted of sexual assault charges involving multiple female complainants in a high-profile criminal case.
