    Is this offensive to you?

    Frankie Boyle has fallen out with bbc bosses after they slated him for making a "humiliating and derogatory" comment about olympian Rebbeca Adlington-he said she looked like a "reflection of herself on the back of a spoon"

    The bbc policy has changed since the Jonathan ross/Andrew sachs nonsense and it seems you now cant say anything remotely bad about any individual.

    So is Frankie right to be angry? is anyone here of the opinion that this is a "personal attack and slur" on Rebbeca?

    political correctness run amok?

    Context : A comedian making an attempt at humour.

    As such I don't find it derogatory, unless his INTENTION was to humiliate.

    Doesn't sound to me like theres any personal vendetta there?

    It's all just done for more attention isn't it. Publicity.

    crazy.........................think back to the days of Bernard Manning lol

    Sometimes the truth hurts. :-D

    soon there will be nothing funny on the bbc at all !

    you cant censor frankie boyle ffs :-D good joke imo

    humiliating - no. derogatory - yes very.

    I think the joke is in poor taste particularly as Rebecca Adlington is an athlete - she doesn't put herself out in the public eye as being beautiful. I wouldn't make jokes about someone who dedicates themselves to making their country proud. Beeb do overreact though.

    this comment is nothing compaired to what he said about baby p on a podcast

    I'm sorry, but she is a bizarre looking individual.

    ha this is ridiculous! Gervais slates people all the time...just watch his stand up fame to see that.

    All comedians do that as its funny...nothing personal about it! Simon amstell used to rip it out of people on Buzzcocks but nothing has ever happened to him...







    ...or has it, as he isnt presenting it anymore.

    ...He went back to the stand-up circuit.

    Perhaps there is some truth in what you suggested there!


    Either way... has the person Frankie Boyle allegedly been offensive to actually made a complaint?

    This country is full of people taking offense at something on behalf of others.

    It is the spoons I feel sorry for, for forks sake.

    I would be definately needing therapy then :-D

    Yeah tbh shes no stunner but in the same way shes not ugly either lol. As a person Id judge her more on her achievements than her looks, I wish Id won 2 olympic gold medals at 19 :thumbsup:. Whenever I have seen her be interviewed she comes across as a nice and genuine person and surely this matters more than her looks. If it was a man he most likely wouldnt be judged on his looks so its a bit unfair she is just because of her gender.
    I bet shes more successful and richer than most girls her age who may be better looking
