His first wife ditched him because he 'is gay'. That's what she reported said.

Bi means he's thinking of trying it. Gay means he has tried it and liked it.

Yeah, i think that was the point of character though. Like most characters on Little Britain, we were encouraged to laugh at their ridiculousness and offensiveness, not with it.

I never really cared for Little Britain, but it getting cancelled was stupid imo. This young generation just didn't understand it.

Well when he had a wife , he called himself 'bi ' , once they divorced he then classed himself as 'gay' .

I don't know why he thought it was funny to pretend to fancy Simon , we all know he doesn't really fancy him ....it was all done for a joke ,but I never found it funny .

But you must admit the different ethnicity prosthetics were cringe. I was never a Little Britain fan.

I will say though,they should have been consistent with their 'cancel culture ' , the guy who does phone jacker/ face jacker wore a black prosthetic mask ... despite not being black. But it seems that's 'ok' ... just because he's non white himself ,but he's not black .

It's like when the Nina Simone movie hired a mixed/ Hispanic actress to play her ,and actually gave her black face . It's as if they were so lazy ...they just thought "oh well close enough" , literally no similarities.

ANTM ...Tyra let alot of racist / boarderline weird stuff slide . Models were being darkened & lightened with heavy makeup to look like a different race . Was a complete mess .

Yeah they were cringe, but i think that was the point honestly. I don't think it was their intention to offend. I mean look at that middle class white woman character who would throw up every time a black or brown person baked a cake or whatever after she took a bite. It was to highlight the ridiculousness of how some people are/were in this country. Like i say, you laugh at them, not with them. That sketch in particular was to point out the ridiculousness of racist people in this country.

It's all about intention, but I think to be on the safe side ... people will just avoid doing it completely now. It is odd though that alot of these sketches & characters were only done between 2005- 2010 roughly ,as it seems that was an entirely different time.

We went from people not caring to now everything being offensive.

Like I said , Kayvan Novak should have been called out aswell,as he portrayed different ethnicities ,but it's obvious he got a pass .

Some of the younger generations would probably get offended at the colour pink if it meant looking good on precious Twitter.

That's to make the insane feel better about themselves in these kind of cases.

Tbh I'm sick of the far right and far left, I wish that there were more of us that were sane again.

But nowadays we get the far left being outraged at jokes, and the far right thinking that Trump won the last election and that Biden stole it, plus being allergic to seeing a black face on TV.

This is exactly what i hate , it's always one extreme to another.
There's never a healthy middle ground .
