Britain's Got Talent contestant Nabil Abdulrashid has revealed he’s been sent death threats after his act in which he mocked racists garnered 733 Ofcom complaints. 

While the comedian, 35, won the semi-final of the show on Saturday, beating unicyclist  Wesley Williams, it seems like some viewers were not loving his routine. 

He tweeted after the show: 'Funny how I made fun of lefties too but so far it's not them wishing death on me or sending me abuse.. hmmm who were the snowflakes again?'

He also penned: 'I promise to do no jokes about racism or Islamophobia in my final if I experience no racism or Islamophobia between now and then."

'They want to complain? Ok, I’ll give them something to complain about.. TUNE IN ON SATURDAY.' 

Nabil's 'edgy and brave' act on racism came just weeks after Diversity's Black Live Matters inspired dance sparked almost 25,000 complaints.

The funnyman wowed the judges with his act that saw him joke about how his 'white liberal left-wing friend' told him to 'forget he was black' so that he wouldn't be subjected to racism.

During his performance, he also quipped: 'People watching will think that it's another of one of those Black Lives Matter guys doing jokes about stop and search.

'No, it's a joke about being fat. Big Narstie and I are both fat, we just both happen to be black too. Don't throw in the race card guys!'

Delighted: Nabil won Alesha Dixon's Golden Buzzer during his audition earlier in the year, and she heaped praise on him before hailing him as 'edgy and brave' for tackling racism in his act

Gushing: Alesha said, 'It's okay to feel a bit uncomfortable with comedy, I think that's what comedy is about and I think you're very brave to take on the subject of racism, very poignant'

The judges were impressed by his performance, with Alesha Dixon, 40, remarking: 'I really enjoyed it, the reason I picked you as my Golden Buzzer is you're quite edgy, you're different, and you're that guy.

'It's okay to feel a bit uncomfortable with comedy, I think that's what comedy is about and I think you're very brave to take on the subject of racism, very poignant right now.'

She went on: 'I think we all need to learn to laugh a bit more and have fun so well done, it was great.' 

Ashley Banjo, who recently admitted he and his fellow Diversity members were subjected to racist abuse following their performance in the show's first semi final, called Nabil's act 'legendary.' 

What a man! Nabil's act has received lots of support from people on Twitter but also some vile abuse - he has been responding to messages with patience, humour and grace
