I’d complain about how sweaty he is. Compounding negative stereotypes about us black people.

The US being a worse example does not mean the UK is fine as much as some would like to think!

...so BLM movement and their supporters, ‘do it the wrong way’...is often the thing said...so they do it another way and that’s ‘the wrong way also..’...so maybe another way, would be the thing...and another, and another etc...until there is a right time and place found to support equality...


...Diversity......supporting equality for all and providing amazing dance art...

...also, because of the vast size of the USA, in comparison...and its gun laws etc...it can never be used as a benchmark, I feel...it’s more comparing a pea or something to a huge several course meal...

Powerful performance, not sure it was the right show to perform it due to the adult theme, but I think they would have known that, so the cynic in me feels it was done for publicity for the show

So, no-one complained about the kids singing about climate change and saving the planet but a black dance group gets thousands of complaints dancing about equality? Both are causes that some people feel passionate about but only the race cause brings complaints.

NOT 'My lecture'...It's sickening how artists of any kind are expected to rein in any personal self expression for fear of appearing to have an opinion on anything.
And even more sickening that it's suggested that anything remotely thought provoking is unwelcome on a chewing gum fir the brain show like BGT.

It’s a bit easier to explain take the knee to a 5 year old than the there is a possibility the police will kill you

...people watch BGT for different reasons as well, I think...entertainment is obviously a main thing for some but there are also many wow moments ...when performers show their talent in a very powerful way....all art forms have always had that blend of expression through their talent...personally I always prefer for an art/talent to have meaning, rather than ...’we dance because we dance because we are gifted dancers, etc...’...the meaning is what so lifts a performance into its ‘powerful’...


Incredible body painting act stuns the Britain’s Got Talent Judges...


An incredible visual artist used their Britain's Got Talent audition for a powerful message this week.

Simon described the act as "stunning" and said it was "the most original act we've seen this year."

The simple fact is people complained to ofcom, and they did so because they objected to the content. People can politicise things to the extent of the law, but you can't force people either to like it or to watch it. People will make their opinions clear, and in this case, they have

...I wonder what the percentage of the Ofcom not happy people, with the overall viewing figures...please forgive me/I feel dirty, but I did sneak a peak at the DM comments section...only for a few seconds though because I stopped at the first comment...

‘They are hardly diverse are they when every member is the same colour‘....

..I mean, I would have laughed out loud if it wasn’t so unfunny and dumb as dumb as dumb...

people can't be forced into liking something they watch, and while that DM comment is laughable, it's not wrong either. Diversity isn't singular
