Jim Davidson sparks Twitter fury with racist YouTube rant

Jim Davidson has sparked outrage after posting a YouTube rant suggesting dance troupe Diversity should do a routine about black men mugging people.

The comedian, 66, also said 'the Asian community who have big families are taking no notice' of coronavirus restrictions and are living in 'a bubble of 300 in a f****** house'.

Furious viewers quickly rushed to Twitter to condemn the comedian's YouTube video - titled 'Who Needs Diversity?' -  as 'racist'. 

In the video, the Generation Game host says: 'Diversity, what the f*** do you want?'

Diversity took to the Britain's Got Talent stage earlier this month for a raw performance inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.

Led by dancer Ashley Banjo, the former champions opened the performance by reciting a viral poem The Great Realisation by the singer Tomfoolery, about the BLM movement and police brutality. 

During their performance, the group also narrated the death of George Floyd who died after police officer Derek Chauvin put his knee on his neck in Minneapolis on May 25 for nearly nine minutes.    

In his expletive-laden rant, Davidson adds: 'You just want to be famous don't you. You want to be all around the world. That's why you do it, you don't give a f*** about George [Floyd].'

He goes on to say: 'You don't see white couples on adverts anymore, do you? Most TV presenters are non-white.

'The Golden Girls, you know that film The Golden Girls with all them old birds? That's being made by black people.'

The comedian, 66, also said 'the Asian community who have big families are taking no notice' of coronavirus restrictions and are living in 'a bubble of 300 in a f****** house'

He continues: 'There's loads of white people sticking up for you, sticking up for Black Lives Matter. Young white girls walking around with banners. Defund the police, support Black People.

'Well, I say most young girls, Gemma's sister is not holding up a banner as she was violently mugged by three black men. Perhaps Diversity can do a mugging thing.'
