SLUMP hit ITV was in crisis mode last night as outraged viewers vowed to boycott the networks biggest show over a far-left Black Lives Matter stunt performed by Diversity on the non-political family show.
The group reformed for the return of the talent competitions semi-final that has seen the long-running ITV programme ditch its usual studio audience due to social distancing rules.
Diversity’s politically charged performance led to the family entertainment show’s viewers turning off in their droves after it became another political tool of the wokies who control the TV industry in the metropolitan elite bubble that is London.
Viewers – who compared the set up to a notorious Black Mirror episode, could now see just how talentless and unfunny the over-paid judges are without a real live audience, with ITV being forced to dub canned laughter, video-link fans and fake cheers into the show to give the woke joke of a programme some atmosphere.
Thames and Syco producers allowed Diversity (below) to perform a politically charged dance routine that promoted anti-Capitalist rhetoric, promoted Communism and included a highly political performance based on the violent far-left anti-Trump Black Lives Matter protests in the UK and America.
Ashley Banjo – who’s dance troupe Diversity won the hearts of the nation with their talent back in 2009 and won the ITV show, shocking fans by beating opera sensation Susan Boyle produced the performance and narrated the politically charged routine.
Fans of the ITV show were outraged and some even vowed to boycott the show after the woke dance routine.

Former Scots Newspaper editor Terry Manners said: “I like Diversity – and many issues BLM raise are good ones. But most Brits are sick of the paramilitary BLM making threats and tearing down flags and monuments.”
“So I was distressed to see Diversity turn Britain’s Got Talent into a BLM propaganda show last night with their act.”

Chris wrote on Twitter: “just watched Britains got talent why did Ashleigh Banjo have to include BLM into this has nothing to do with talent show very disappointed with him should be neutral spoilt the show for me”
Abigail defended Banjo hitting back: “Their performance highlighted the key events of 2020, which included the pandemic and BLM. Racism in the U.K. is still present, BLM targets that.”
He replied: “yes I get what they meant but I see all that 24 hours a day why when I sit down to relax and watch talented people do I get BLM on your knee thrown at me again im sure there’s not many people not heard all this already.”
Rosie called for a boycott of the show writing: “Boycott Britain’s Got Talent , Diversity does kneeling dance for BLM”

Another seething fan accused the ITV show of being ‘hijacked’ by BLM: “Britains Got Talent semi final now hijacked by BLM dance performance ! Fucking propaganda at its finest ! All the luvvies on the panel fawning over it. Makes me sick to the stomach. “
WALLIAMS’ THREATENED TO WALK OVER PEIRS ROW
DAVID Walliams threatened to quit the show if one of the shows original judges, Piers Morgan stood in for head judge Simon Cowell who is recovering from a back injury.
ITV sources told MailOnline: “I heard that David threw his toys out of the pram” at the idea of Morgan returning to the ITV show which has seen its ratings slump in recent years after viewers became ‘bored’ of the format.
“Imagine David and Piers sitting on either end of that judging panel – what great TV it would have been.” added the source at ITV.
Morgan confirmed to the Mail that he had been approached about a return to the show.
The Good Morning Britian presenter wrote: “After hearing of Cowell’s accident, ‘my first thought… was genuine concern for my old mate, who should have stuck to the Zimmer frame that I bought him for his 60th birthday last year.”
“My second thought, seconds later, was that there was now a vacancy for head judge on BGT.”
“Amusingly, I was quickly sounded out to see if I was potentially available but had to explain that if I was confined to the same close quarters as that insufferable twerp David Walliams, it wouldn’t end well.”
The backlash and threat of a boycott will worry ITV plc bosses who are set to see the company booted out of the FTSE 100 index and relegated to the 200 after shares in ITV plc fell by 60 percent with an advertising slump.
ITV was been a member of the blue-chip index since 2011, reported The Times.
