Frankie Boyle is being defended by Channel 4, who claim he is 'cutting edge'. I do not see what is 'cutting edge' about relying on racist and discriminatory language and subject matter that mosty 'comedians' ditched twenty years ago. I see it as not only a retrograde step for comedy, but also a thinly veiled excuse for Boyle to attack whomever he pleases and dress it up as 'funny'. The man obviously has a chip on his shoulder that Channel 4 are allowing him to vent, whilst alienating half their audienc in the process.rnrnBoyle is indefensible, and his dumbing down of comedy is unforgiveable. Both he and Channel 4 are in serious breach of Broadcasting laws, as laid down by Ofcom.
Sign this petition if you want to see this vile, disgusting, hateful excuse of a man sent to the dole queue where he belongs, and embarrass Channel 4 into admitting that they are hypocrites – after all, did they not eject Emily Parr from Big Brother a few years back for using the exact same word as Boyle did last night…?
