The bizarre disclaimer appeared after viewers clicked to watched Brum on the iPlayer. The warning said: "This series was originally aired in the 90s and early 00s and may reflect the language and attitude of the time." People were quick to criticise the broadcasting corporation for labelling the show as outdated in its views.

One Twitter user wrote: "Goodness me, what actually happened in episodes of Brum?"

Another added: "I put this on for my son about 20 minutes ago and was amused by this notification.

"Turns out he is terrified of Brum, so it should have perhaps had a horror warning on it instead!"

A third person said: "Oh look, it's the popular TV anti-hero Brum."

The BBC added warnings about "outdated social attitudes" on many shows that are available on the iPlayer back in July.

This included The Mighty Boosh and The League Of Gentlemen, which were aired during the early 00s.

They were also removed from due to their use of blackface following the Black Lives Matter movement this summer.

But viewers were confused why Brum was being put in the same category as these shows.
