I thought he made quite a salient point on qt though ..

I didn't agree with it, he is white and privilege....with a voice like his he wouldn't have got a slot on Jeremy Vine if he didn't come from a famous acting dynasty. I wasn't actually talking about QT, he's pure ignorance of WW! and from what I have read about him since, he's gone from being a mediocre actor to prat

What do people think of Michael McIntyre??

When he started he was more 'alternative' but as he's become this huge star celebrity for the BBC his comedy has become safe, smug and grating.  That is what you'd expect for someone occupying that Saturday night family light entertainment slot.  He comes over as really full of himself.  I don't hate him and can think of a lot of worse, it's just I wouldn't choose to watch his shtick.  Ant and Dec annoy me more.

yep, in his ignorance, he sneered at a film with a Sikh as a  British WWI combatant as 'woke politically correct' when thousands of Sikhs fought for and laid down their lives for the British cause in WWI.  He owes the Sikh community a contrite apology and so does the legions of ignorant arseholes who nod their heads in agreement with his racist ignorance. 

 

If he can't do that, he is a racist!

In my opinion, if you are not part of the minority (or majority in the case of women), then it is best not to comment on racism, sexism, disabledism etc etc... in public.

Isn’t he dead 

Still alive, I don't think a child abuser can be described as 'irritating', it's not like you might think, "Oh that posh spice is well up herself with her stupid pouts and ridiculous poses she thinks she can copyright, and that Jonathan King, with his pedophilia, really irritates me as well!"

Jonathan King was widely considered to be deeply irritating (and indeed he rather played on his reputation as a bit of a "Marmite" figure) long before his criminal activities became public knowledge, and I assume that's where the reference comes from.

 

That said, I fully understand and agree with your point: no matter how 'irritating' I might consider "Johnny Reggae" (and it's often cited as a classic example of "cultural appropriation"), it simply isn't comparable to a conviction for child sexual abuse...

Was gonna say exactly this ^^^

The title does say 'horrors' however - should Rolf Harris go on there and Fred Talbot? Or maybe none of them??
