    The Daily Mail insinuating that others are racist :rofl:

    It wasn't at all racist, if you think it is you're taking yourself too seriously.

    The 'Japanese Schoolgirls' bit was so bad it was painful...

    I have no objection to actors 'blacking up' if it's for a good reason (Lawrence Olivier/Orson Welles in Othello, Michael Bates in 'It Ain't Half Hot Mum - yes two radically different examples I know). But a lot of the sketches were completely pointless - and it's painfully awkward sitting through a white guy being a heavily stereotyped Jamaican woman with no punchline other than that that he is a heavily stereotyped Jamaican Woman...

    Oh God - that last post made me sound like one of those types who complains to the BBC if a character's skirt is over ten centimetres over the knee, or something...


    Eww

    'Racist' and 'funny' are not mutually exclusive.

    I think the people complaining are clearly the people who don't get out or have never seen Airport. Everyone must know a Taaj type character, Moses was practically a well honed rip off of the Liason Officer in Airport. I'd say the people calling it racist, are in fact the racists themselves.

    No, not at all. They were hilarious tbh. They are great observers of people for them to have portrayed every every race in such a stereotypical accurate manner lol. Will definately be watching the next episode.

    I don't think it's necessarily racist, but I am surprised that the same idiots who watch the tv wit their hands poised over the phone, ready to complain to ofcom have not already done so. Then again, it's probably because people would let david walliams and matt lucas get away with murder, simply because it's 'funny' and entertainment and because its how theyre known and their position in showbiz :dontknow: it's stupid, but then people are stupid soooo
