Following on from Channel 4 pulling Bo' Selecta from their All4 channel after Leigh Francis' apology...




...and the BBC pulling Little Britain from iPlayer...




...now ITV have said that episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway featuring Ant and Dec in blackface will never be aired again, after an apology from the popular duo.




What the hell? Next they will be saying Benny Hill was sexist!

The world has gone mad, I tell ya! ;)

I'm not saying that we don't have a ton of bad TV in America but...

All of those things look like absolute dog shit.

Bo' Selecta was never funny, and I've never watched Saturday Night Takeaway so I couldn't give an opinion.

Little Britain could swing from cringingly unfunny to hilarious, depending on the sketch / the episode / how wasted you were whilst watching.

The UK is sadly filled with a bunch of racist drunks, it's really not surprising this is happening.

this is eerily like the censorship in the movie V for vendetta when they got rid of music and art.

Little Britain at its best was genuinely hilarious, but it could be hit or miss.

As a resident of Britain's former fucktoy before the US cucked it and made us its new bitch (Australia), I am a neutral observer that gets the media from both forced down my throat.

In general, British comedy shits all over the US. It's not even close. Both shit all over us though - whoever said Germans aren't funny has obviously never met an Aussie. Our comedians are the shittest in the world. Except for me and Yahoo Serious.

Fuck me I hated bo selecta and little britian, ant and dec are a pair of cunts as well.

This victim parade has some benefits it seems, when do we hang these pricks and how much are the tickets.

Or the burning of books... in that one book about burning books and the temperature it takes for a book to burn.

I never actually read Fahrenheit 451 it was like 1 percent of my grade so I never bothered reading it because I didn't have to write a paper on it

That one, 1984, Animal Farm, and Brave New World, are really influential classics, a commentary on how quickly a benelovent idea can turn into the silencing of the masses.

One time I used a bow and arrow. Im from Nottingham and it was at the tales of robin hood museum but I realize now that it can be considered insensitive towards elven people and I should check my privilege.

Leigh @Leigh I want to apologize.

The latest to apologise is some Youtube "star" called Liza Koshy (never heard of her, but she has nearly 18 million subscribers), who together with her boyfriend did some mock Japanese accents in a 2016 video.
