that was so cringeworthy.
with relation to the OP, yeah, i really don't think a joke should've been taken so seriously. And from what I just watched, Bryant seems to be a bit of a touchy ******** (albeit a funny one)

If Chris Bryant had been black and George Osbourne had told him to "stop acting like a Golliwog", would they have found a black person to say "why can't Chris Bryant take a joke"? Unlikely.
If I ever did hear him utter those words, I would literally keel over laughing.
I agree with the OP, we shouldn't take these comments so seriously; unless, however, they were said with a certain degree of malice.
