SLUMP hit ITV has defended dance troupe Diversity following a controversial far-left Black Lives Matter political performance on last Saturday’s Britain’s Got Talent that sent viewers reaching for their remote controls in anger.
Tired of being lectured and talked down to by the Wokies in the leftie London media bubble, thousands of fed-up viewers took their frustration out by complaining to the UK media regulator Ofcom and the complaints have now hit a whopping 8,000 meaning Britain’s Got Talent is now one of the most complained about TV show’s this year.
Despite the huge public backlash with head judge Ashley Banjo branding viewers “hateful” and “ignorant” for their reaction and critique, ITV has defended the group and has refused to issue an apology, despite the performance frightening innocent children.
Arrogant Ash wrote on social media that they were full of “hate” and accused them of being “ignorant” as viewers blasted the group who’s performance included anti-Capitalist statements and pro-Communist messaging and later told viewers and critics that they did not speak for Britain.
One angry Dad told Politicalite that the violent political performance “scared his child” and blasted ITV for failing to issue a warning before the controversial performance.
A spokeswoman for the network, that is facing an advertising slump and has been kicked out of the FTSE 100 index said: “Diversity’s performance offered their take on the extraordinary events of 2020 opening up important topics of conversation. The show was complied for a family audience.”
ITV was blasted by a young Dad from Manchester who said the violent Black Lives Matter inspired performance “scared his child” and called for other parents who had a similar experience to “contact Ofcom” to complain.
Jamie, from Manchester, contacted Politicalite on social media after hearing that over 3,000 people had complained to Ofcom over the politically charged dance routine.
He told us: “It was vile and the political violence scared my kid.”
Jamie blasted ITV telling Politicalite: “It was a family show so where was the warning?”
He added: “Kids are already scared enough right now they don’t need this.” He urged others who felt the same to contact Ofcom.
Ashley Banjo’s brother Jordan addressed the row on his Kiss FM breakfast show on Wednesday.
He told listeners: “”Of course you get some critiques but normally it’s focused on the dance.”
“But this one was different, it was really important, it was special to us. We are all about positivity and love and we got so much positivity and love back from this one.”
“But we also got bombarded with messages and articles of horrible stuff about us, about our families, about how even now Diversity not diverse enough because there’s only five white people in it.””I can’t speak for anyone else it’s sad, it’s sad, genuinely.”
“I feel really anxious and worried saying something like black lives matter when that’s all we want man, love and positivity.”
“No one is saying only black lives matter, as a son and as a dad, I look at Pel [Perri] and I just.. it’s all positivity and love, let’s keep it moving.”
Ofcom said it had received 7,581 complaints and added: “We are assessing the complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate.”
Despite the backlash, it seems that ITV and Diversity have failed to get the message.
Make sure you turn off the woke joke of a programme, it’s well past its sell-by date.
