BB’s Laura? Drown the bitch! says FH.
So there was I, thinking lardy Laura with the washing machine allergy couldn’t possibly get more irritating and then she goes and uses the ‘P’ word. For people who don’t come from some feral place in Wales and don’t use language that died out somewhere in 1973, that’s ‘poof’.
Channel 4 claim that it wasn’t used in a derogatory way, and think a slap on the wrist (which if it was administered yesterday, will presumably still be wobbling) is sufficient. Really?
Why is Emily’s use of a racist word unacceptable and yet Laura’s use of a homophobic one harmless? Shouldn’t it be up to the group it’s deriding to decide whether they find it acceptable or not, rather than C4?
Had Gerry chosen to kick off rather than cooly dismiss it as if a three-year-old who knew no better had just shat in its pants Laura could have found herself in rather deep water this morning – shame, we could have drowned the bitch whilst she was there…
