Channel 4 refuse to apologise to Katie Price for broadcasting Frankie Boyle's vile sexual slur about disabled son Harvey

Katie Price has called in her lawyers after comedian Frankie Boyle made a vile sexual slur against disabled son Harvey on his Channel 4 show Tramadol Nights.

Former Mock The Week star Boyle, 38, said on the show, which is watched by one million viewers : 'Jordan and Peter Andre are still fighting each other over custody of Harvey - eventually one of them will lose and have to keep him.'

He then added: 'I have a theory about the reason Jordan married a cage fighter - she needed a man strong enough to stop Harvey from f****** her...'

he has been telling the same joke on stage since february-I find katie price herself far more offensive-maybe I should call a lawyer? she has ZERO chance of winning-maybe her lawyer will have the sense to explain freedom of speech laws to her

To be honest, I can't say I love Katie Price, as I dont think no one ever does or will.....
But Frankie Boyle's slur was pretty pathetic.........

If you put yourself in the spotlight, be prepared to be shot down.

I find Frankie Boyle and his 'comedy style' incredibly rude and obscene, maybe 99% offensive & 1% funny.

She's a tramp...BUT... No way should anyone ever bring a child into an argument, just shows their own stupidity


I like Frankie Boyle but tramadol nights is absolutely rubbish

If she didn't people to talk about her, her life and her kids then perhaps she shouldn't have plastered them all over TV.

To me Katie price is the worst kind of 'celebrity'. She was/is happy to do whatever it takes for fame , happy to take the money that vines with it but doesn't want any of the drawbacks.

She is most in the wrong for putting her kids in the spotlight

I agree with the 'freedom of speech' but I question the morality and wisdom of Channel 4's broadcasting team. Personally I find it offensive.

Can't stand Katie Price but targeting a disabled child for cheap laughs is disgusting.

I hope she wins and bankrupts him. :)

As for Freedom for Speech............it's not that clear cut, Slander, defamation etc etc. She will slaughter him.

indeed-dont get me wrong,Im not excusing everything frankie says-My post was a direct reply to the ops statement that she was calling in her lawyers-for what exactly? it was a joke,maybe in very bad taste but a joke nonetheless.

It doesn't matter who - or what - you are, no-one should have the right to say that about a child, especially not in the name of 'comedy'.

The thing is though, that's all her fault. The kid hasn't asked for any of it so it's a bit wrong to bring him in to it. By all means say stuff about Katie Price, because you're right she's brought it on herself, but the kid hasn't.

cany agree sy-its only slander surely if he clearly meant it? nobody in their right mind believes he was stating this as a fact,and I believe a court would see it that way. It would be a serious blow for comedians if she won.

Interpretation though.............i'm sure her 100x more expensive legal team will nail him. While she's at it she'll probably take a sizeable chunk out of Channel 4.

I agree to disagree with you Barkster. Personally i hope she slaughters him. When you cross a line then you have to risk the consequences and in my opinion he has done that.

Last week she made a disgusting remark on her twitter about HIV

She is a media slut, but those comments about Harvey were really out of order

Kind of agree with Sy tbh...don't like her but a line was crossed
#22
I agree. But I don't think he would have made that 'joke' had she not used her kids for her own publicity. There should be a ban on celebs using their kids for self publicity not on people telling jokes. Personally dont find boyle funny, his style is too aggressive for me

Cheap shot making a joke about her disabled child. It doesn't matter who Harvey's mum is, its just distasteful.

channel 4 should be apologising for broadcasting tramadol nights in the first place. His stand up is great but dear god this "sketch" show is probably the worst thing that's been on tv in years and that includes konnie huq.

i find him really funny .... Not this new show though ... It's trying too hard to be offensive I think

If the joke was just about katie price fair play... But it's not her childrens fault they have her as a mother


My thoughts exactly ;)

indeed-the sketches have all been dire,except for the "four children and a wee hing" one which I thought was very funny,altho viewers outside glasgow may struggle to get it
#28
Don't find him funny anymore, used to but think he's lost the plot now. He's getting worse in trying to be outrageous. Read his book last year which was so crap and all over the place that I couldn't be bothered finishing it. Think he has serious issues, especially with sexual abuse (maybe been a victim himself somewhere along the way and this his way of dealing with it or whatever). And what's that beard all about? Makes him look creepy and pervy more than usual.

Don't like Katie Price but even she doesn't deserve that.

So where exactly is the slur about his disability? the jokes frankie made are impartial to his disability.

No fan of Jordan at all,but this is unacceptable.

Frankie Boyle is not funny at all imo,he just seems to like being offensive for the sake of being offensive,funny or not

Regardless of everything, Katie Price brought more attention to the joke by doing this. She should've just ignored it.

no-her children arent fair game,and I agree with dangergods comments about war hero jokes(jimmy carr actually did that did he not?),but in situations like this I find myself on the horns of a dilemma-as a parent,I dont believe children(disabled or not),should be brought into comedy material like frankies,but at the same time I believe in freedom of speech. What he said was vile,it was a step too far imho,BUT i dont believe it is legally actionable in any way,and Im not sure I would want it to be either.

I hate sitting on the fence,but I really am in two minds here,I SHOULD defend his right to have said this,but its very hard to do so.I still believe strictly in law he did nothing a lawyer can touch him for,morally its reprehensible tho.

guys read my comment properly, i never said she attacked a disabled child i only said she herself has made vile and disgusting comments about things herself also and i never said i agreed with frankie boyle far from it!
